Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
An approximate $2 million renovation project has breathed new life into the Courtyard Scottsdale at Mayo Clinic with revived areas to eat, drink, work, socialize and sleep.
The Scottsdale, Arizona, hotel has received a complete head-to-toe makeover – from its completely reimagined lobby to refreshed rooms and suites that ensure guests have more comfortable and flexible spaces to enjoy than ever before.
Visitors will see and feel a difference the second they step foot into the hotel’s bright lobby. Friendly and knowledgeable staff greets guests from welcome pedestals that have replaced the traditional front desk, allowing one-on-one interaction during the check-in and check-out processes. Travelers also will find strategically placed media pods along the perimeter of the new welcome center. The spacious nooks boast plenty of comfortable seating along with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi so guests can watch their favorite TV shows while surfing the Internet on their laptops, tablets or cellphones.
Technological advances in the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale hotel’s lobby will keep guests informed and entertained. A 52-inch interactive GoBoard is one of the state-of-the-art features added during the remodel project. Travelers can find current weather conditions, get directions to the Crackerjax Family Fun and Sports Park or WestWorld of Scottsdale, check out the day’s news and sports highlights and seek the latest flight information and statuses at Sky Harbor International Airport all with a simple touch. A separate Boarding Pass Station features dedicated computers that can be utilized for printing tickets and documents to make traveling more convenient.
The addition of The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. raises the hotel’s dining standard with menus featuring seasonal fruits, burgers, pizzas, salads and sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients. The new heart and soul of the lobby area features flat-screen TVs and plenty of comfortable seating, with a large communal table designed for families and small groups of business travelers or individual bar stools where diners can sip on freshly brewed Starbucks drinks including hot or iced grande-sized caffé lattes, cappuccinos, caffé mochas, caramel macchiatos, caffé Americanos, espressos, white chocolate mochas, Tazo Chai tea lattes and Tazo teas. The Bistro also offers a number of craft, domestic and imported beers and has a bartender on duty to whip up a custom cocktail.
Guests will feel a healthy dose of excitement when they experience thick mattresses and fresh amenities in one of 124 modernized rooms and suites at the Scottsdale, Arizona, hotel. King, queen, double and sofa beds all boast custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows for a sound night’s sleep. Rooms received a technological shot in the arm with the addition of 32-inch HDTVs to complement free high-speed Internet access and Marriott Plug-in Panels. New granite countertops highlight the upgrades made in guest bathrooms, which also feature hairdryers and Paul Mitchell products. Visitors also can expect contemporary desks with ergonomic chairs, coffeemakers, comfortable sofas and chairs, irons and ironing boards and mini-refrigerators in all rooms.
