Protea Hotels by Marriott has announced expansion into North Africa with the opening of Protea Hotel by Marriott Constantine, Algeria.
Located close to the airport, the hotel is also within walking distance of most major city attractions such as the Cirta Museum, the Ahmed Bey Castle, Le Monument Aux Morts, and the iconic seven bridges.
“Protea Hotels by Marriott is a leading hotel brand in Africa with a significant footprint in Sub- Saharan Africa,” said Volker Heiden, vice president Protea Hotels by Marriott, Marriott International, Middle East and Africa.
“The opening of this hotel marks the strategic expansion of the brand into exciting new markets. We are confident that this expansion will provide further impetus and pave the way for the brand’s future growth.”
The hotel’s 72 guest rooms spread over six floors provide views of the city. Additional facilities include two boardrooms and a ballroom.
Popularly referred to Algeria’s “City of Bridges,” Constantine is located above the Rhumel River, and has a rich past reflected in the buildings and ruins of its 2000-year-old history.
Protea Hotel by Marriott Constantine joins Marriott International’s portfolio of 7 operating hotels in Algeria including Constantine Marriott Hotel, Renaissance Tlemcen, Sheraton Annaba, Sheraton Club des Pins, Sheraton Oran, Le Meridien Oran and Four Points by Sheraton Oran.
