Philadelphia's hotel inventory is about to get larger after one of the city's Marriott hotels builds additional rooms.
The 172-room Courtyard Philadelphia South at the Navy Yard, located at 1001 Intrepid Ave., opened in 2014 to become the Navy Yard's first and only hotel, and it's set for expansion.
The hotel, by Marriott International ( NASDAQ: MAR), will undergo an expansion that will add an additional 40 guest rooms, putting its total key count at 212 once construction is complete.
"This addition will easily accommodate visitor demand in the Philadelphia Navy Yard," Marriott told the Philadelphia Business Journal in an email. "The Navy Yard has recently re-emerged as one of the region’s most important locations for work and play alike, and the Courtyard Philadelphia South looks forward to an exciting future."
The 1,200-acre Navy Yard is home to more than 150 companies, including Urban Outfitters and AlliedBarton Security Services.
