New Design Features High Tech GoBoardÂ®, Flexible Work and Social Spaces and The Bistro with Breakfast, Dinner, and Full Bar
Online PR News – 25-March-2011 – – Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE:MAR) announced that the 100-room Courtyard by Marriott, located a quarter mile from the Medford Airport, has completed a major renovation of its lobby. The hotel now features the brandâ€™s new Refreshing Business lobby concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize however they choose while on the road.
â€śFrom day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel,â€ť said Janis Milham, vice president, Global Brand Manager, Courtyard by Marriott. â€śGuests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether traveling alone or with colleagues.â€ť
The open, bright and contemporary new Courtyard hotel lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. This will allow staff to move about to show guests the lobby features and provide assistance. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoardÂ® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.
Guests can connect to free WiFi and there are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business center features several complimentary computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro â€“ Eat. Drink. Connect.; offering casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, wine, beer, and cocktails so guests can unwind. The MarketTM, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste you forgot to pack.
