Marriott International is giving its Courtyard brand in North America a facelift.
More than 375 of the brand’s hotels in the U.S. and Canada are expected to complete exterior renovations by 2024, including 60 that already have been completed. Many also will receive new interior designs in their public spaces and guestrooms, according to Marriott.
The exterior updates will include a new façade, signage and landscaping. Interior updates will feature an “urban-inspired lobby” with individual check-in desks and the Bistro Bar as a lobby focal point. There also will be increased lounge seating, the Crate market — with to-go snacks, sandwiches and salads — and a communal table.
The brand’s media pods, with their own TV screen and sectional sofa, will remain.
Marriott plans to expand its Courtyard fitness centers, open 24/7, with dedicated weightlifting and stretching areas in addition to exercise equipment. The updated guest rooms will feature solid colors with a “warm and neutral palette,” a platform bed, cove lighting, a sleeper sofa, a “valet station” with refrigerator and coffee maker and a 55-inch TV.
