Courtyard Spartanburg Declares $2.5M Renovation A Complete Success


Spartanburg, SC, hotel now features state-of-the-art lobby with GoBoard, The Bistro restaurant; guest rooms restyled with new furniture, carpet and bedding

Spartanburg, SC/PRNewswire-iReach/ - The Courtyard Spartanburg has kept its historically southern roots and gone culturally modern with a $2.5 million renovation that will revolutionize the way visitors eat, drink, work, socialize and sleep in the Upstate.

The Spartanburg, SC, hotel has received a complete top-to-bottom makeover – from its spacious lobby and 108 well-appointed guest rooms to its meeting and outdoor areas and fitness center – to provide guests with more comfortable and flexible spaces than ever before.

Visitors surely will declare the hotel victorious in conquering boredom the second they step foot in the hotel's bright, reimagined lobby. Friendly and knowledgeable staff members promptly greet guests from welcome pedestals that have replaced the traditional front desk, allowing one-on-one interaction during the check-in and check-out processes. Strategically placed media pods along the perimeter of the new welcome center provide comfortable seating and allow travelers to watch their favorite shows on flat-screen TVs with individual remotes. Guests can also take advantage of complimentary Wi-Fi for laptops, tablets and cellphones.

One of the state-of-the-art touches added during the project is the 52-inch interactive GoBoard, where travelers can find current weather conditions, get directions to Chapman Cultural Center or Hollywild Animal Park, check out the day's news and sports scores and seek the latest flight information and statuses at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport all with the swipe of a finger. A separate Boarding Pass Station boasts dedicated computers and printers that can be utilized to make traveling more convenient.

The new lobby at the hotel in Spartanburg revolves around The Bistro, Courtyard by Marriott's new restaurant concept that has helped raise the standard for dining with menus featuring seasonal fruits, burgers, pizzas, salads and sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients. A large communal table within the eatery space offers the perfect place where families or small groups of business travelers can gather for a hearty breakfast or dinner. A comfortable bar seating allows diners to sip in style on freshly brewed Starbucks drinks, a number of craft, domestic and imported beers and custom-ordered cocktails concocted by a friendly bartender.

Travelers will have the freedom to relax in luxury in refreshed guest rooms that feature thicker king, queen and double mattresses topped with cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows designed for a sound night's sleep. The rooms also sport new furniture and fresh carpets, draperies and wall vinyls to complement modern light fixtures. Free high-speed Internet access, new high-definition flat-screen TVs, in-room coffeemakers, spacious desks with ergonomic chairs, comfy sofas, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, mini-refrigerators, sound-proof windows and Paul Mitchell products in bathrooms are among other amenities guests will enjoy at the all new hotel in Spartanburg, SC.

Other highlights of the remodel worth raising a flag over include new carpets and furniture in the 756-square-foot meeting room, equipment upgrades in the fitness center and new patio furniture at the seasonal outdoor pool.

Travelers can experience the Spartanburg hotel's changes for themselves and save a little cash by capitalizing on the Stay For Breakfast Package offering deluxe accommodations and breakfast for two adults at The Bistro all for rates starting at $99 per night. The deal is available through Dec. 31, 2013, when guests use promotional code S4B to book stays online or by calling 1-800-834-7015.
