Courtyard by Marriott Hotel To Open In El Paso, Texas
Innovative design and flexible space tailors to the needs of today's travelers
By: Marriott International
Located at 610 North Santa Fe Street, the 151-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard El Paso Downtown/Convention Center offers guests convenient access to the El Paso Zoo, El Paso University, The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso, Plaza Theatre and numerous museums.
Courtyard constantly researches trends and evolves to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette make for a soothing and calm environment.
"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers," said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, Courtyard. "Today's technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to."
The new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the "Luggage Drop" and plug personal devices into the "Tech Drop" ledge for seamless technology integration.
Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The "LoungeAround"
An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A "Shower Nook" housing shampoos and towels makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.
The Courtyard El Paso Downtown/Convention Center features the brand's latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. The newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. The Bistro offers guests a wide variety of "made to order" breakfast and dinner items, "grab and go" options, and also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to unwind at the end of the day.
Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
Green has been Courtyard's signature color since Marriott launched the brand 30 years ago. Now Courtyard is even greener with the introduction of a guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal are conveniently located by side exits.
The nine-story hotel features an outdoor terrace-top pool, fitness center and guest laundry, and offers 869 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 20 people.
