Today the Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa proudly unveils a brand new design just in time for Ottawa's famed Tulip Festival. Managed by Atlific Hotels, the downtown Ottawa hotel introduces fresh, upscale guest rooms, The Bistro café & bar that proudly brews Starbucks® Coffee and doubles as a lounge, a cool interactive touch GoBoard and a home theatre in the lobby, as well as airline boarding pass printing stations in the ultimate Byward Market location surrounded by 130 restaurants, cafés, bistros and shops.

"It is so exciting to bring Marriott International's new Refreshing Business Design to our Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa location," said Philippe Gadbois, Senior Vice-President Sales and Marketing, Atlific Hotels. "The new Ottawa hotel design allows guests a comfortable space for both work and relaxation while providing the ideal location to enjoy the best of downtown Ottawa."

The stunning transformation began with a whole new look for the hotel's 183 guest rooms to achieve the sweet spot between contemporary and warm and the balance between productivity and calm. A simple layout reconfiguration allows for wide-open work spaces and more room to kick back. Extra pillows, crisp white linens, new flat-screen TVs, and free Wi Fi make recharging easy.

"Many of our guests stay with us while travelling for business so it is important that we provide a hotel experience that offers the opportunity for a work/leisure balance," said Denise Breau, Cluster Director of Sales & Marketing. "We are thrilled with Marriott's fresh new design and the ability it gives us to truly cater to our busy guests' needs."

The lobby's contemporary and sophisticated new design incorporates vivid, contrasting colors such as blue, green, orange and red. The new space now features The Bistro café and bar serving convenient and healthy grab-and-go meals for breakfast and dinner with cocktails available throughout the evening. We Proudly Brew Starbucks® Coffee throughout the day for that quick pick-me-up latte!

The Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa also includes a market, an indoor pool with wading pool, fitness centre and a beautiful outdoor terrace. The hotel's refreshed Ottawa meeting space features nine meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 250 guests and offer exciting new banquet menus.
