New Hotel Lobby Welcomes Guests With Bright, Contemporary Atmosphere

STOCKTON, CA–(Marketwire – October 5, 2010) –  A bright and contemporary new lobby will welcome guests at the Courtyard hotel near downtown Stockton, CA, featuring the Courtyard by Marriott’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, Global Brand Manager, 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 open atmosphere and vivid contrasting colors of the new Courtyard hotel lobby will draw guests from their hotel suites in Stockton, offering a relaxing social environment. 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. Guests can connect to free Wi-Fi 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.

The traditional front desk has been replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. The pedestals also allow staff to move about more freely to assist guests. As one of the most state-of-the-art hotels near University of the Pacific, the Courtyard Stockton offers exclusive GoBoard® technology as a signature element of the new lobby. This 52-inch LCD touch screen is packed with local information, maps, weather, news, and business and sports headlines. Guests can navigate the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.

In addition to great hotel accommodations and a fantastic new lobby, California travelers will find attentive service at this distinctive hotel in Stockton, CA. Restaurant options at the Courtyard have also been redesigned with The Bistro — Eat. Drink.
