COVINGTON, Ky., March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Commonwealth Hotels announced that the 120-room Courtyard by Marriott located at 3990 Olympic Blvd in Erlanger, Kentucky has completed a major renovation of its lobby. The hotel 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.
The centerpiece of the new strategy is a redefinition of the lobby space. Driven by guest needs, the Courtyard lobby fuses functionality, aesthetics, technology, and the right mix of service to offer guests greater control of their environment. High tech and high touch meet high style in this 'living space' that provides flexibility to work, relax, eat, drink and socialize all at one's own pace. Creating more than a space to pass through, the sophisticated new lobby generates a connection with guests.
Refreshing Business is more than just state-of-the-art products our guests said they want from us. This initiative is about moving from transactions to connections and empowering our Associates with tools to deliver the best service in the industry.
The open, bright and contemporary new Courtyard hotel lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private 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, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoard® technology, 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 can connect to free WiFi and there are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library features several complimentary computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
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 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 you forgot 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.
