The chosen Venue to Watch this month is the Courtyard Exeter Sandy Park Hotel, proposed to open in March 2022.

This new branch of Courtyard by Marriott will have 250 state-of-the-art rooms with in-room entertainment, spanning over eight floors. On the ground floor, there will be facilities including a lounge, snack and coffee bar, and a purpose-built business centre. To top off this new development, there are plans for a rooftop cocktail bar along with a fish and steak restaurant, where guests can enjoy picturesque views along the River Exe Estuary and across the Devon countryside. The rooftop restaurant will be a unique space for guests, with two private dining areas serving locally sourced, high-quality produce.

The new four-star hotel will drive business towards Sandy Park Conference and Banqueting Centre during the week for business trips. As well as this, the hotel will welcome rugby fans heading to Exeter for home matches of the Exeter Chiefs. To create a connection between the conference centre, the stadium and the hotel, there are plans for an impressive glazed bridge to be built to Sandy Park. This provides the perfect opportunity for supporters or event attendees to stay at the hotel with its great connections.

Why is Courtyard Exeter Sandy Park good for meetings and events?

This hotel will have three event spaces, available for meetings, dinners, or weddings. There is free Wi-Fi on offer in the venue as well as modern audio-visual technology. The hotel also has an app for event attendees to check if their room is ready and check-in online to skip the front desk. Returning businesses can gain points with Marriott Hotels to get exclusive bonuses and money off future events.

The new hotel cost £35 million and is progressing according to plan to open in early 2022. This is despite the current pandemic which has affected the progress of the build, like every other in the world. The building works are available to watch from the comfort of your own home with live webcam footage, accessible 24/7 online.
