Marriott To Open Soon In GJ

Soon travelers will have another place to rest their sleepy heads in Grand Junction. The Marriott Residence is slated to open the second week of February, and the Marriott Courtyard opens in late March.

The two new hotels will bring a total of 140 new rooms to Grand Junction. According to the Grand Junction Visitor's and Convention Bureau, normally it would be hard for the market to absorb that many new rooms. However the growth we've experienced over the past year and half is so substantial we should be able to handle it and there should be enough business for all lodgers to share.

Over the past ten years Grand Junction has seen a steady increase of new hotels rooms at a rate of about 2-5% being added every year.
