Sigita Rudzevičienė, the manager of Courtyard by Marriott Vilnius City Center, said that the first guests will arrive at the hotel on the very first working day.
“The guests will stay at the hotel at the very first night. The conference center, the rooms, the restaurant are already being reserved for companies and groups of tourists for April and May. The first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the Baltic States has also been discovered by members of the Global Marriott Loyalty Program. Even before we have announced the exact date of the opening, our loyal clients have already reserved accommodations for summer”, says S. Rudzevičienė.
