WOODWAY, Texas, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The sixth Best Western Atrea hotel, an upper midscale prototype designed to attract business travelers, has recently opened its doors in Woodway, Texas.
The 82-room Best Western Atrea Colonnade Parkway, located near Providence Hospital and Industrial Park, features three conference rooms with more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space, an indoor pool and spa, business center, state-of-the-art fitness center and an on-site cocktail lounge. Guests receive free wireless high-speed Internet access and a complimentary hot breakfast.
"The new Best Western Atrea Colonnade Parkway sets a new standard for guests in the Woodway / Waco area," said Mark Williams, vice president, North American development for Best Western International. "With its features designed to make travelers more comfortable and productive on the road, this upper mid-scale hotel is a great lodging choice for guests traveling for business."
The hotel offers guests easy access to a variety of attractions including Baylor University, Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, Dr. Pepper Museum and the Cameron Park Zoo. Recreational activities such as fishing and boating are available at nearby Waco Lake. A variety of dining and shopping options are also close by.
Best Western's Atrea prototype was first announced at the brand's annual Convention in October 2007, and hotel developers have since committed to build an additional 28 Atrea properties in both the United States and Canada. Best Western expects additional Atrea properties to open in Conyers, Ga., North Bergen, N.J. and New Bern, N.C. Atrea hotels in Calgary and Sherwood Park, Alberta, are expected to open this year.
Best Western's Atrea prototype has several features designed to make business travelers more productive, including multifunction community spaces for meetings or social gatherings, which are often missing from upper midscale hotels, and multimedia features in guest rooms.
