MIAMISBURG, Ohio—Marriott International Inc. announced that the 146-room Courtyard by Marriott Dayton South/Mall in Miamisburg, Ohio, has completed a major renovation of its lobby. The Miamisburg hotel now features the brand’s new Refreshing Business lobby concept designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize while on the road.
“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice president, global brand manager, Courtyard by Marriott. “Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether traveling alone or with colleagues.”
The open and contemporary lobby replaces the traditional front desk with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. Flexible seating options range from a communal table to more private media booths with high-definition televisions to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
A signature element of the new lobby at the Miamisburg hotel is the exclusive GoBoard technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather and news, business, and sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions, and directions.
Guests can connect to free Wi-Fi, and there are additional electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library features several computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight statuses.
