Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Marriott International Inc. has announced that the 146-room Courtyard Melbourne West at 2101 W. New Haven Ave. in Melbourne, FL, has completed a major renovation of its lobby and guest rooms. The hotel in West Melbourne now features the brand’s new Refreshing Business lobby concept designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize 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 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 Melbourne, Florida, hotel’s open, bright and contemporary new lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk has been replaced by separate welcome pedestals to create more personal interactions when guests check in. This will allow staff to move about to show guests the lobby features and provide assistance. 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 lobby is the exclusive GoBoard, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather and news, business and sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.
Guests of the hotel in West Melbourne can connect to free Wi-Fi throughout the property. There also are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library features several computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight statuses.
Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. The café-style restaurant offers casual, flexible seating, easy access to food, healthier menu options for breakfast and light evening fare including snacks, wine and beer so guests can unwind. 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 Melbourne West Hotel is also pleased to introduce 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 Melbourne, Florida, 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 of the hotel in West Melbourne.
