Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing.
Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
The Courtyard Fort Myers Cape Coral Hotel recently finished a number of exciting renovations, Marriott International Inc. announced. The 149-room property at 4455 Metro Parkway in Fort Myers, FL, has made a number of improvements to its lobby, including the addition of new seating, a restaurant and front desk, as well as renovations to its guest rooms.
“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice president and global brand manager of 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 Cape Coral hotel’s lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. Separate welcome pedestals replaced the traditional front desk to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action and more private media booths with high-definition televisions to an even more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new Cape Coral, FL, hotel lobby is the exclusive GoBoard technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines. At just a swipe of the screen, guests can explore local attractions, restaurants and more.
Guests can connect to free Wi-Fi, and there are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The Cape Coral hotel’s enlarged business library features several computers along with a free printer and separate stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight statuses.
Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. offering casual, flexible seating, easier access to higher quality and healthier menu options for breakfast and light evening fare including snacks, wine and beer. The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste guests forgot to pack.
Courtyard Fort Myers Cape Coral Hotel is also pleased to announce newly renovated guest rooms offering a comfortable and stylish design. Thoughtfully planned, each room features plush bedding, a functional work space, spacious bathroom, separate seating area and complimentary wireless Internet access. The ample work space and ergonomic chair enable guests to accomplish their tasks, while the large flat-screen TV provides a great break and opportunity for downtime enjoyment. Providing a warm, sophisticated environment, the hotel’s rooms accommodate guests’ desire to stay connected, productive and refreshed during their stay.
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.
