Marriott International has announced plans to open its first hotel in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The 75-suite Residence Inn Sarajevo is expected to open late next year and will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by SEIC Hospitality and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts.

Ideally located 20 minutes from the airport and near the old city, the property will offer convenient access to the city’s historical and cultural attractions as well as restaurants, cafes and shops. An attractive year-round destination, Sarajevo is known for its variety of summer festivals and skiing throughout the winter months.

Amy McPherson, the company's Europe president and managing director, said: “We are expanding our footprint in Eastern Europe and look forward to opening our first hotel in Bosnia and Herzegovina. An as evolving business destination, Sarajevo is a perfect fit for our Residence Inn brand.”

Residence Inn properties are designed as all-suite hotels that offer studio, one- and two-bedroom suites. Designed for stays of five nights or more, each suite has a fully-equipped kitchen, separate dining area and flat screen TV. 

Other features include a fitness room and onsite guest laundry.
