Guests of the Courtyard San Diego Sorrento Mesa/La Jolla Hotel will be dazzled by a $1.2 million in renovation that makes the hotel near UCSD shine brightly.

Marriott’s commitment to refresh the Courtyard brand radiates throughout the North San Diego hotel with its new flexible spaces for guests to eat, drink, work, socialize and sleep in comfort.

The UCSD hotel’s 137 rooms and 12 suites received a complete restyling with new paint, carpet, light fixtures and drapery along with accent walls that set a calming tone. New pillow-top mattresses and sofa beds feature Marriott’s Revive bedding with custom comforters and duvets, cotton-rich sheets and plenty of fluffy pillows.

Visitors also will see and feel a difference when they step foot into the state-of-the-art lobby at the hotel near UC San Diego. The traditional front desk has been replaced by semi-private welcome pedestals, where friendly and courteous staff members can now provide one-on-one attention during the check-in and check-out processes. Media nooks along the perimeter of the welcome center sport flat-screen TVs and personal remotes along with work tables and comfortable, flexible seating for guests to surf the Internet on their laptops, tablets or smart phones using the hotel’s free wireless Internet access.

An interactive GoBoard is one of the gems of the new contemporary lobby. The 52-inch LCD TV is the perfect place at the Sorrento Valley hotel for visitors to find driving directions, scope out things to do in San Diego and La Jolla, track the weather for any city in the country or check out flight information from San Diego International or other airports across the United States. A Boarding Pass Station allows visitors to print their boarding passes for more convenient traveling.    

The Bistro, the true crown jewel of the makeover, sits just feet away from the reimagined lobby. The café-style restaurant in North San Diego features a communal table where guests can relax and enjoy a breakfast of fresh seasonal fruit, thick-cut French toast, Daybreak fried eggs or a BLT. Comfortable bar seating and additional tables provide ample room for guests to imbibe a number of craft, domestic and imported beers, wines by the glass or cocktails concocted by an attentive bartender while savoring dinner fare such as the Bistro burger, pepperoni pizza, salads, soups and sandwiches made to order. Starbucks coffee is served all day, so guests needing a morning pick-me-up can enjoy a hot or iced grande-sized caffé latte, cappuccino, caffé mocha, caramel macchiato, caffé Americano, espresso, white chocolate mocha, Tazo Chai tea latte or Tazo tea. Travelers at the Sorrento Mesa hotel who are craving a midnight snack can swing by the 24-hour Market, which also sells toothpaste and other toiletries for those who might have forgotten to pack some of the essentials.
