As rising demand for hotel rooms in Greater Salt Lake City spurs talk of new development, properties are taking steps now to shore up market share and boost occupancy. A case in point: Marriott’s Courtyard Salt Lake City Airport, which recently underwent an extensive renovation.
Located at 4843 Douglas Corrigan Way,the 154-key hotel now incorporates Marriott’s Refreshing Business concept in its lobby and brand-new suite design. In the lobby, RLJ Lodging Trust has introduced media pods, Wi-Fi access, and a revamped layout designed to accommodate social gatherings and pop-up meetings.
Also new is GoBoard 4.0, a lobby feature offering information, maps, weather, and headline news by means of a 55-inch LCD touch screen.
Through a smartphone integration feature, guests can access local information plus flight updates from nearby airports. The facility’s focus on business travelers extends to building-wide Internet access and a business center offering computers and a printer as well as dedicated terminals for flight inquiries and printing boarding passes.
Highlights of guestroom improvements include more functional work spaces, upgraded bathrooms, separate seating areas, high-speed internet connections and new plush bedding.
