The Courtyard Fishkill Hotel proudly opens its doors after an eight-week renovation, revealing a bright new lobby, meeting space and modern rooms that are sure to please all techies. Located in a technology corridor, surrounded by companies like IBM East Fishkill and IBM Poughkeepsie, the updates to the hotel are innovative and timely. Complimentary Wi-Fi has been upgraded and is now available throughout the hotel - even on the outdoor terrace - at 3-megabytes-per-second speeds. One IBM traveler says the “Internet speed and bandwidth [are] terrific”; he can stay productive without waiting on a slow connection.
“From private media booths to high definition televisions, we make sure our technology savvy guests get what they need,” said Adam Pregno general manager of the Courtyard Fishkill. “The new design offers our guests more flexibility to work, socialize or eat, allowing them to maximize their stay.”
From the moment guests walk in this hotel in Fishkill, the vivid colors and clean lines of the lobby make a bold statement. Comfortable seating, work and relaxation zones welcome guests to the public space so that they won’t feel confined to their rooms.
One of the stand-out features of the new lobby is private media booths with high-definition televisions and personal electrical outlets to keep cell phones and laptops fully charged. Guests can also work at a high-top communal table conveniently equipped with electrical outlets and offering ample elbow room. For guests wanting to enjoy the pleasant New York weather, an outdoor terrace is located right off the Fishkill, NY hotel lobby with stylish outdoor furniture to lounge and relax.
When it’s time for food, guests don’t have to stray away from their laptops; instead, they can grab a bite to eat at The Bistro- Eat. Drink. Connect.™- a new dining concept of high quality, healthy food in a casual atmosphere. Guests can fill up on breakfast items like egg sandwiches or classic oatmeal with dried fruit and dinner options like tomato mozzarella flatbread, turkey BLT, or the Bistro burger. With Starbucks® beverages served all day, the Fishkill hotel’s tech clients can brainstorm through the night, fueled by their favorite cup of joe. The Bistro also offers the perfect way to unwind with evening cocktails, craft beer, and wine.
As guests make their way upstairs, they can appreciate the modern updates that extend all the way to the rooms. 32-inch flat screen televisions swivel to accommodate guests as they lounge on the new sofa or spread out on the luxurious bed. A large workspace and a practical ergonomic chair allow guests to stay productive in privacy.
When guests are ready to explore the Fishkill area, the signature GoBoard®--a 55-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines—allows guests to navigate to find restaurants, local attractions and even print directions. Other changes include the complete renovation of the meeting rooms with new carpet, vinyl, lighting, and woodwork.
The Courtyard Fishkill is located in central Duchess County New York just off I-84 at Exit 13, minutes to shopping, dining and entertainment attractions in Downtown Fishkill, esteemed West Point Military Academy and the Culinary Institute of America. The property features 140 guest rooms and 12 suites, indoor pool, fitness center, and The Bistro. For additional information, visit http://www.FishkillCourtyard.com or call 1-845-897-2400.
