BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) announced today plans to open a new 162-room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil's largest and most modern city in the Northeastern region of the country. The hotel project is developed under a management agreement with Rio Ave Ltda., a prominent, local real estate developer. This project, already in construction, will be the Rio Ave Ltda.'s first venture into the lodging sector and is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2014, before the World Cup.
