Innovative Design and Flexible Space Tailors to the Needs of Today's Travelers
Online PR News – 30-September-2019 – Houston, Texas – Courtyard by Marriott Houston Heights/I-10 is set to open its doors in Houston, Texas today. Featuring an innovative lobby space as well as Courtyard's latest contemporary room design, the new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience.
Located at 3220 Katy Freeway, the 147-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Rise Management, Inc. and managed by LBA Hospitality of Dothan, Alabama. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard by Marriott Houston Heights/I-10 offers guests convenient access to The Galleria, EaDo, and NRG Stadium.
Courtyard continues to innovate the guest experience to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette provides an elevated and modernized look and feel during the full guest experience from booking to stay.
"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers," said Janis Milham, Senior Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Classic Select Brands. "Today's technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to."
The new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the "Luggage Drop" and plug personal devices into the "Tech Drop" ledge for seamless technology integration.
Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The "LoungeAround" sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.
An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A "Shower Nook," housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.
The Courtyard by Marriott Houston Heights/I-10 features the brand's latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. As an extension to Courtyard's inviting public spaces, the newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. As an ideal casual dining destination, the new Bistro offers guests a wide variety of fresh Classic American menu items with a contemporary twist. In the evening, the Bistro Bar also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to enjoy at the end of the day. The entire menu was carefully designed to offer a variety of flavorful, fresh items to satisfy every palate from morning to night
Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
The eight-story hotel features an outdoor swimming pool, a well-equipped fitness center, a gated parking garage and guest laundry, and offers 950 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 130 people.
