Marriott to launch in Lagos


Plans have been concluded to bring the Marriott Hotels brand to Nigeria, following the multi-billion naira agreement signed by Quantum Luxury Properties Limited and Marriott Hotels.

The planned 5-star hotel, which will be located on the Ozumba Mbadiwe waterfront on Victoria Island, will comprise 150 rooms. The Lagos Marriott Hotel is expected to be launched in 2014. Marriott International began operations in Africa in 1982 with the Cairo Marriott Hotel, and it has a regional presence consisting of nine properties in three countries offering 3,941 rooms.

Nigeria has recently witnessed an upsurge in hotel development, with international brands such as Radisson Blu, Four Points by Sheraton, Ibis and Legacy, all establishing a presence in Lagos. Other groups have hotels under construction, including Accor, Hilton, IHG and Protea. Other groups who have signed deals with the hope of entering Nigeria’s robust market for the first time, include Kempinski, Mantis and Wyndham.
