Chesapeake, VA (PRWEB) June 24, 2009
LTD Management Company, L.L.C. of Chesapeake, VA is pleased to announce that it was the recipient of the Design and Construction Excellence Award by Marriott International at the 2009 Marriott Owners Conference held in May 2009 for its development of the Courtyard Newport News Airport. This is LTD's second New Construction and Design award from Marriott, and sixth award relating to excellence in design, new construction, or renovation from Marriott International.
"Developing the first ground up new Courtyard prototype was a challenge, but it fit our business strategy of being on the edge of innovative development. We knew the new design would be a success, and were always confident that our superior team could execute on a design that did not have much of a track record from which to learn. All the credit goes to our development and construction team, especially Mr. Bharat Shah and Mr. Kurt Hangar, Clancy & Theys Construction Company, and the staff at the Courtyard Newport News Airport," said Malay Thakkar, Managing Partner at LTD.
The Courtyard by Marriott Newport News Airport is one of the first new-build properties to incorporate the brand's reinvented lobby and room concepts. The modern lobby invites guests to work or socialize with open seating; complimentary Wi-Fi; boarding pass print kiosks; and flat-screen TVs. A new addition to the Courtyard lobby is the GoBoardTM, a 52-inch touch-screen LCD giving guests the option to navigate through local information like restaurants, shopping, maps, weather reports, and news headlines. Guests can also dine at The Bistro for breakfast, or they can enjoy dinner service in the evening with cocktails. The Courtyard by Marriott Newport News Airport was also the first new-build to feature the brand's new exterior design. The property was designed by the architectural firm Jonathan Nehmer & Associates, Inc. and the interior design firm HVScompass, located in Rockville, MD.
The Courtyard by Marriott Newport News Airport was the host site for the Courtyard brand's 25th Anniversary Celebration on October 30, 2008. Mr. J.W. Marriott, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Marriott International, Brian King, Vice President of Global Brand Management, and Dilip Desai, Senior Managing Partner for LTD Management Company were keynote speakers at the event.
"It was an honor to host Mr. Marriott and the Courtyard brand team at the Courtyard Newport News Airport. The event emphasized our partnership and respect for Marriott International," said Malay Thakkar. "LTD also celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2008, so it was a proud moment for us."
The 120-room Courtyard by Marriott Newport News Airport is located at 530 St. Johns Road, Newport News, VA 23602.
