Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Guests staying at the Courtyard Atlanta Alpharetta Hotel are in for something new—a lot of new, actually.
The 154-room Alpharetta, GA hotel has completed a major renovation of its lobby. The hotel now features the brand’s new Refreshing Business lobby concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize however they choose while on the road.
“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice president, Global Brand Manager, Courtyard by Marriott. “Guests 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.”
The open, bright and contemporary new lobby at this hotel in Alpharetta greets guests with vibrant contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. Other new features are apparent right from check-in: the front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests reach the hotel.
Also found in the lobby area are new flexible seating options that range from a communal table in the middle of the action to more private media booths with high-definition televisions and an intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new lobby at this Alpharetta, GA hotel is the exclusive GoBoard® technology. The 60-inch LCD touch screen is packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines. Finding restaurants, local attractions and directions has never been easier for guests at the Courtyard Atlanta Alpharetta Hotel.
Guests can connect to free Wi-Fi as well as charge their gadgets courtesy of additional electrical outlets throughout the lobby. The enlarged business library 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 – Eat. Drink. Connect. The new dining concept offers casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, wine and beer so guests can unwind. For guests’ convenience, 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.
Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched the brand 25 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal will be conveniently located by side exits.
