Developers broke ground April 26 at the site of the new Maui Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, minutes from the island’s Kahului Airport.

“With Kahului being Maui’s commercial hub and Wailuku the seat of county government, we believe this new hotel will fill an important niche in serving inter-island and out-of-state business travelers,” said Chris Tatum, vice president of Marriott Resorts Hawaii. “We also expect to serve travelers transiting the airport and attract visitors wanting to stay on this side of the island to explore Upcountry Maui, Paia and other nearby attractions.”

Located on 3.35 acres, the 138-room hotel will cost an estimated $16.5 million to build and is expected to be complete in early 2012.

The property will include 1,663 square feet of meetings space, a pool, fitness center, lounge and bar, and complimentary WiFi and broadband in every guestroom.
