WILMINGTON, N.C.—Courtyard by Marriott is launching a hotel in Wilmington, N.C. This is the newest Courtyard in the area featuring the Refreshing Business lobby environment. Along with media pods, WiFi, and a variety of seating zones, the redefined space is ideal for everything from pop-up meetings to social gatherings.
Scheduled to open on Feb. 24, the 124-room Courtyard Wilmington Downtown/Historic District offers guestrooms with a functional work space, spacious bathrooms, a separate seating area, and complimentary in-room high-speed Internet.
The lobby welcomes guests with contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk is 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. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
Dining has also been redesigned with The Bistro—Eat. Drink. Connect, offering casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast. The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the items guests may have forgotten to pack.
The six-story hotel features an outdoor swimming pool with a covered and uncovered patio area, fire pit, fitness center and guest laundry, and offers 1,879 square feet of total meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 80 people.
The hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Wilmington Hotel Inc. and managed by CN Hotels, Inc. of Greensboro, N.C.
