Marriott International has announced plans to open its first Residence Inn by Marriott property for extended stay travelers in the Middle East with an 83-unit hotel in the Saudi Arabian province of Jizan on the Red Sea in 2012. It will be part of a mixed-use development that will also include a new 129-room upper moderate priced Courtyard by Marriott hotel that, when opened, will be the fourth Courtyard property in the Middle East, and a 58,000-square metre shopping mall. Marriott will manage both hotels under a long-term agreement with Abdulrahman Saad Al-Rashid & Sons Co. Ltd.
