One of the best hotels near Berkeley, California, just got a little better thanks to a new renovation.
The Courtyard Oakland Emeryville Hotel, featuring 296 spacious rooms,
has completed a major renovation of its lobby and on-site amenities. As
one of the most convenient hotels in Emeryville, California,
the Courtyard now features the brand’s new Refreshing Business lobby
concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and
socialize however they choose 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.”
With new bright colors and a contemporary design, the hotel near
Berkeley welcomes guests with new features the moment they walk through
the door. The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome
pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests
check in. Guests can also kick back and relax with new flexible seating
options including a communal table, private media booths with
high-definition televisions, and an intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.
Unique among hotels in Emeryville, California, the exclusive GoBoard®
technology offers guests an intuitive and easy way to explore the local
area. The GoBoard is 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 charge their devices with added
electrical outlets throughout the lobby. The enlarged business library
features several complimentary computer terminals along with a free
printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline
boarding passes and checking flight status.
Dining at the Courtyard Emeryville hotel's restaurant
has been completely reimagined. Guests will now enjoy delicious
higher-quality food and a new health-conscious menu at The Bistro – Eat.
Drink. Connect. Whether enjoying a filling breakfast or, sampling light
evening fare, or sipping on wine and beer, guests will be treated to
fresh and tasty treats. The MarketTM, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages
and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste
you forgot to pack.
Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched
the brand 25 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a
guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper,
glass, plastic and metal will be conveniently located by side exits.
