Silver Spring Hotel Completes Renovations

Refreshing New Renovations Add Connectivity, Excitement to Hotel Experience

SILVER SPRING, MD--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - It's a fresh new day at the Courtyard Silver Spring Downtown hotel where exciting renovations have created a welcoming atmosphere filled with personalized service, added connectivity and interactive amenities.

Renovations at this stylish hotel in Silver Spring, MD are complete and guests will recognize the changes as soon as they walk through the door and into the warm and friendly hotel lobby and are greeted by associates at the all new Welcome Pedestals. Designed to provide a more personalized and connected hotel experience from the moment a guest walks through the door, the pedestals are less restrictive than a front desk and allow hotel associates to interact more freely with guests during check-in and departure.

Another new lobby feature is the interactive GoBoard, the Courtyard's state-of-the-art LCD touch screen which provides guests with a steady stream of local information, including news, weather, sports and other USA Today headlines. The GoBoard can easily assist guests in locating area attractions and Silver Spring restaurants, providing printed directions, if needed, from the nearby boarding pass printing station, another new hotel lobby feature. An extension of the Courtyard's traditional business center, the boarding pass station is dedicated solely to guests who need to print boarding passes, eliminating airport hassles and providing a quick and convenient option for those needing to catch a flight.

Guests will also notice increased connectivity with the addition of comfortable seating and a Communal Table, complete with electrical outlets to keep guests fully-charged and connected while away from the home and office. For added privacy, Media Pods are both fun and practical allowing travelers the opportunity to plug in and catch up on current events with their own private television with remote as well as offering a more intimate and informal meeting area.

Connectivity at this Silver Spring hotel near Washington, D.C. has moved into the hotel's Bistro as well, where guests can eat, drink and connect "their way" whether it be with a grab and go breakfast or for a leisure evening entrée and drinks. Business travelers and those planning small gatherings will appreciate the hotel's new Blair Room, which increases the Courtyard's usable event space, while also providing an intimate setting for smaller meetings or socials.

Finally, at the end of the day, travelers will find the hotel's impeccable guest room accommodations have taken on a refreshing new appearance with a brighter and more vibrant look and feel, and gracious amenities such as luxurious linens, granite bathrooms with upscale toiletries, high-speed Internet access and 32-inch LCD TVs with premium channels and pay-per-view movie options.
