Weston, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Marriott International Inc. has announced that the 171-room Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Weston at 2000 N. Commerce Parkway in Fort Lauderdale, FL, has completed a major renovation of its lobby.
The hotel in Weston, Florida now features the brand’s new Refreshing Business lobby concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize however they choose 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 new open, bright and contemporary lobby at the Weston, Florida hotel welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk has been replaced by welcome pedestals to create more personal interactions when guests check in.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 include a communal table in the middle of the action, private media booths with high-definition televisions and a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new lobby at the hotel near Fort Lauderdale 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 to places including Cleveland Clinic Weston, Nova Southeastern University and BB&T Center.
Guests can connect to free Wi-Fi and will find ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library at the Weston, Florida, hotel features several computers along with a printer dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight statuses.
Dining at the Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Weston has been completely redesigned with The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect., providing casual, flexible seating. The restaurant offers easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast. Light evening fare, including snacks, wine and beer, can help a guest unwind after dark. The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste guests may have forgotten to pack.
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 near Fort Lauderdale.
