Courtyard by Marriott Somerset opens doors to guests this week

The Courtyard by Marriott Somerset will host a grand opening celebration on March 6, 2017 at 4pm. More information will be forthcoming about the community event.

The new Courtyard by Marriott Somerset, located adjacent to The Center for Rural Development, is officially open.

The 104-room hotel opened its doors to guests for the first time this week showcasing its innovative lobby space and Courtyard’s latest contemporary room design.

The new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience. The room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette makes for a soothing and calm environment.

Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.

Along with media pods, complimentary Wi-Fi and a variety of seating zones, the redefined space is ideal for everything from pop-up meetings to social gatherings. The lobby also features The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect®, offering casual, flexible seating; easy access to food and high quality, healthy menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, cocktails, wine and beer so guests can unwind.
