Lobby Renovation Completed at Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard

Capitol Hill Hotel's New Design Features High-Tech GoBoard®, Flexible Work and Social Spaces, and a 24/7 Food and Beverage Market

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2013) - Marriott International, Inc. announced that the Courtyard by Marriott Capitol Hill/Navy Yard has completed a major lobby renovation. The hotel, managed by Crestline Hotels & Resorts, 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." 

The open and contemporary hotel lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors. The open-ended front desk creates more personal and private interactions among check-in, allowing staff to easily provide assistance. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action, to more private booths with HD televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area, making this an ideal meeting space near Capitol Hill.

A signature element of the new lobby 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 connect to free WiFi and utilize the many electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library features several complimentary computer terminals with free printing and computer stations dedicated to checking flight status and printing airline boarding passes.

This D.C. hotel near Capitol Riverfront is a convenient location to hold your next monthly meeting, company party or retreat. The newly renovated meeting space accommodates up to 120 guests, and The Bistro will cater breakfast, lunch, or coffee breaks.

Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro - Eat. Drink. Connect offering casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast. A light evening fare includes snacks, wine and beer so guests can unwind. The Market™, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste you forgot to pack.
