Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
The Courtyard Poughkeepsie Hotel has just finished $700,000 in major renovations to its lobby, meeting spaces, fitness center and outdoor space. The new renovation brings this Poughkeepsie hotel in line with the newly updated Courtyard brand standards.
The new changes are apparent the moment one enters the hotel. The new lobby has been rethought and is now more vibrant with blue, green, orange and red colors used throughout. Instead of a front desk, this Poughkeepsie hotel now offers guests welcome pedestals, which provide more flexibility and guest-staff interaction. Additional seating provides a wide range of options, from private media booths, to a semi-enclosed lounge area and communal tables.
Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro ®– Eat. Drink. Connect.; offering casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, wine, beer and cocktails so guests can unwind. The MarketTM, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste guests forgot to pack.
A unique feature not found at other Poughkeepsie hotels, the exclusive GoBoard® Technology now offers guests local information at their fingertips. The GoBoard®, a 52” LCD touch screen, provides up to the minute news and weather as well as help guests discover restaurants and local attractions near the Courtyard Poughkeepsie Hotel.
The meeting spaces have also been updated. The two individual meeting rooms at the Courtyard Poughkeepsie, totaling 1,274 square feet of space, now offer new meeting room tables with a drop down feature to eliminate the need for tablecloths. This Poughkeepsie Hotel also purchased pens made from post-consumer materials to further its commitment to green initiatives.
Another green initiative the Courtyard Poughkeepsie Hotel will be starting is the guest room recycling program. Separated receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal allow the hotel to be more effective in its recycling efforts.
