NORCROSS, GA — The Courtyard Atlanta Norcross/I-85 hotel has undergone a complete renovation of its guest rooms and public spaces.
With a total cost of around $3 million, the hotel’s remodel allows the brand to better serve business and leisure customers. The fresh guest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready for the day ahead. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette make for a soothing environment, and functional furnishings allow business travelers to thrive while on the road.
Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the luggage drop and plug in personal devices on the tech drop ledge for seamless integration. While away from the office, professionals can stay on task in the privacy of their rooms with movable desks, ergonomic chairs and complimentary wireless internet access, perfect for saving on data usage.
Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the updated accommodations. Lounge-around sofas offer a pop of color and comfortable space to wind down and scroll through social media news feeds, catch up on email or watch a show on a flat-panel TV. Expanding into the guest bathrooms, the renovation included the addition of shower nooks, allowing guests easy access to shampoo, towels and other bathroom amenities without having to leave the shower.
Outside of the guest rooms, visitors can convene with colleagues or kick back with friends and family in the redefined lobby, boasting The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect, which offers healthy breakfast options, specialty Starbucks beverages and light evening fare, including snacks, cocktails, wine and beer. The welcome center also features flexible spaces with comfortable seating to meet or socialize, a business library with several computers, and a separate computer station dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes.
During downtime, visitors can keep up with their fitness goals in the on-site gym or enjoy a refreshing dip in the sparkling outdoor pool. The hotel also offers two event rooms, perfect for small business meetings or intimate social celebrations with guests in town for a wedding or reunion.
Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched the brand 30 years ago. Now, the brand 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.
