Driftwood will operate the 90-room hotel, joining the Courtyard Miami West/FL Turnpike and Courtyard Chicago Wood Dale/Itasca as their third Courtyard by Marriott franchised property.
“Courtyard Gulf Shores has an excellent location on Interstate 59 near Craft Farms, which draws millions of leisure travelers each year,” said Carlos Rodriguez, Executive Vice President for Driftwood Hospitality Management. “Baldwin County continues to be a fantastic tourist destination and this recently renovated hotel, which has the strength of the Marriott flag, is a terrific addition to the Driftwood portfolio.”
Courtyard Gulf Shores features a heated outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, function space for small meetings, free parking and free Wi-Fi. The Bistro serves up refreshing breakfast daily – as well as specialty Starbucks® blended coffee drinks – and a variety of menu options for dinner, including beer and wine, each evening.
Conveniently located in the heart of Gulf Shores, the hotel is minutes from an array of leading tourist attractions and outdoor activities including Craft Farms, one of the nation’s premier golf communities. The famed Gulf Shores Beaches are less than five miles from the hotel, as are facilities for biking, boating, bowling, fly-fishing, hiking, jet skiing, jogging, kayaking, miniature golf, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing.
