Further growth on the cards for Marriott International.

Marriott International plans to open its third stylish Renaissance-branded hotel and first upscale Marriott Executive Apartments property in Tianjin, China later this year, under a management agreement with Tianjin Tianbin Real Estate Development.

The two hotels are the 368-room Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel and the 96-unit The Lakeview, Tianjin -- Marriott Executive Apartments. They will share the same lakefront building in Tianjin's Hexi District. A lively night life scene, high-end shopping and the offices of major financial institutions are located nearby.

"We're excited to see our presence in Tianjin continue to expand with these two distinctive properties," said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott. "Tianjin has evolved into an important high-tech and financial centre in China and is home to a significant ex-pat community who will appreciate the availability of our first Marriott Executive Apartments in the city."

Guest rooms at the distinctive Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview will be more spacious than those offered by its competitors with baths featuring separate showers and tubs and plush bath amenities. They will be contemporary in style and will offer modern amenities and features.

Three restaurants and a contemporary lobby lounge serving authentically prepared culinary specialties and beverages will form the foundation of the hotel's dining and entertainment offerings. Recreational amenities will include an indoor swimming pool and a health club.

For social events and conferences, the hotel will have 2,750 sq m of function space including a 1,500-sq-m ballroom divisible into three sections, a 400-sq-m junior ballroom, capable of being divided in two, and three additional meetings rooms in varying configurations, all of which will be divisible into two sections.

The Lakeview, Tianjin -- Marriott Executive Apartments will offer a range of one, two and three-bedroom units, all of which will be stylishly furnished and include a fully-equipped kitchen, in-unit laundry and safe, flat screen, high definition television and high-speed internet access.

While residents will be able to use the recreational and dining options at the Renaissance Hotel, they will have a dedicated restaurant and lounge of their own for breakfast. Other amenities will include, a multi-purpose game room, a children's playroom, room service and on-property resident storage room.

The Marriott International portfolio in Tianjin currently consists of the 280-room Renaissance Tianjin and the 284-room Renaissance Tianjin. The 400-room Tianjin Marriott is planned to open in 2013.

The announcement comes shortly after the opening of Suzhou Marriott Hotel. Situated in an ideal downtown area for business travellers, the Suzhou Marriott Hotel is located in close proximity to the new high-tech development zone, adjacent to Suzhou Government and Administrative Service Centre, with easy access to Suzhou International Expo Centre and China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park.

Spacious guest rooms are designed to accommodate both leisure and business visitors, featuring plush new bedding, bathrobes, flat screen television, ergonomic chairs, high speed internet and a well-lit full-sized desk. The executive lounge is located on the 48th floor and boasts a superior view of the city. In addition to the newly opened hotel, Marriott's portfolio in the city also includes the 380-room Renaissance Suzhou Hotel. A third addition, the 267-room Courtyard by Marriott Suzhou is currently under development and is expected to open later this year. Suzhou Marriott Hotel is the tenth property to be flagged under the Marriott Hotels and Resorts brand in the country.
