Marriott`s Courtyard range of hotels is known for catering to a corporate clientele, but with Pune Chakan the group has gone a few steps further. Keeping in mind the huge automobile and ancillary industry thriving in Chakan, the hotel has created a car deck, which can be used to showcase new cars. Its ballroom is named Rivaz, after Francoise Isaac De Rivaz, known for creating the world`s first internal combustion powered automobile and even names on the cocktail menu are related to the automobile industry.

Unlike most hotels, which have a common wi-fi hub, Courtyard Pune Chakan, has a wi-fi hub in each room to ensure that the remoteness of the location doesn`t create network issues for the clientele.

The hotel has a very modern structure, but the food menu lays emphasis the food culture of the Kolhapuri belt of Maharashtraha. It is also the only green build of the Courtyards in India.
