San Francisco Airport Hotel Greets Guests with New Amenities

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) can be a hectic place. For guests traveling through the busy airport, take a breather and enjoy some peace at the newly renovated Courtyard San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront Hotel, located just 10 minutes away.

One of the most convenient San Francisco Airport hotels, the Courtyard San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront announced today a number of exciting improvements to increase guest comfort. The moment guests walk into this SFO airport hotel, they will be treated to modern design, stylish color schemes and high-tech additions.

“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, bright and contemporary new lobby at the hotel in South San Francisco welcomes guests with vivid 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.
Guests can also start relaxing right away thanks to new flexible seating options. This hotel near the San Francisco Airport installed a communal table, private media booths with high-definition televisions, and a semi-enclosed lounge area.

A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoard® technology. Unique among San Francisco Airport hotels, the 52-inch LCD touch screen is 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 while charging their gadgets thanks to newly installed outlets in the lobby area. The enlarged business library offers even more space to work in and features several complimentary computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

Guests at this South San Francisco hotel can also keep their stomachs happy with a new dining concept. The completely redesigned Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. Offers casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, wine and beer so guests can unwind. 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.
