SALISBURY — The Courtyard by Marriott hotel will be the first in the area featuring updated amenities for business travelers

The lobby will include media pods, Wi-Fi Internet connections and seating for social gatherings and last-minute business meetings, according to a press release from Marriott.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what business travelers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice president and global brand manager, Courtyard. “Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. The Courtyard lobby invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or be entertained, whether traveling alone or with colleagues.”

The 94-room hotel is scheduled to open in March at 120 Marriott Circle. The franchise will be owned and managed by BPR Properties of Greensboro

The lobby will be decorated with contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk will be replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in and allow staff to show guests the lobby features and provide assistance.

The dining area has been redesigned to offer flexible seating and features easier access to food and healthier menu options for breakfast and light meals.

The four-story hotel features an indoor swimming pool, outdoor social space with a fire pit, fitness center and guest laundry, and offers 650 square feet of meeting space for up to 48 people.
