Marriott International and Aberdeen City Council have just signed an agreement to deliver a brand new Residence Inn by Marriott.
The new hotel will be on the new Marischal Square development in the centre of Aberdeen.
Work on the hotel, which is aimed at the extended-stay business and leisure markets, will begin in January and is expected to be completed by summer 2017.
The 126-room Residence Inn Aberdeen is part of the multi-million pound Marischal Square project, which Aberdeen City Council is developing in partnership with urban regeneration and property specialist Muse Developments.
The hotel is the first Residence Inn by Marriott in the city and joins seven other Marriott International properties in Scotland including Courtyard by Marriott and Marriott hotels in the Dyce area of Aberdeen and a 107-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel in the centre of Edinburgh.
Residence Inn by Marriott hotels are designed to meet the needs of extended-stay guests (five nights or more) and the new Marischal Square hotel will comprise 114 studios and 12 one bedroom suites – each with a fully equipped kitchen and separate areas for living and sleeping.
The expansive public areas will feature a Lounge Bar, Grab and Go Market, fitness centre and business centre.
