WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Courtyard by Marriott hotel is rolling out its innovative lobby and room design in Washington, DC. This is one of the latest Foggy Bottom hotels featuring a Refreshing Business lobby environment, where guests can enjoy an open and flexible space. Along with media pods, Wi-Fi and a variety of seating zones, the redefined space is ideal for everything from pop-up meetings to social gatherings.

Scheduled to open in February, the 149-room Courtyard Washington, DC Foggy Bottom/GWU also offers a refreshing and stylish room design that helps guests stay connected, productive and comfortable. Thoughtfully planned, each room features plush bedding, a functional work space, spacious bathrooms, a separate seating area and complimentary in-room high-speed Internet.

Located at 515 20th Street NW, the hotel is owned by Allstates, LLC and managed by Marriott International, Inc. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, this Washington, DC Foggy Bottom hotel near the Metro offers guests convenient access to George Washington University, the John F.

Courtyard understands business travelers, and, through extensive research, the brand continues to evolve to meet guests' changing needs. Combining innovative technology with style and comfort, the adaptable lobby space offers options so guests can make the most of their time on the road.

"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what business travelers want from a hotel," said Janis Milham, vice president and global brand manager, Courtyard. "Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. The Courtyard lobby invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or be entertained, whether traveling alone or with colleagues."

The open, bright and contemporary Courtyard DC hotel, near George Washington University, welcomes guests in their lobby 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 and allow staff to show guests the lobby features and provide assistance. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.

Dining has also 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; and light evening fare, including snacks, cocktails, wine and beer so guests can unwind. Coffee lovers can also enjoy freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. The Market™, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste guests may have forgotten to pack.

A key component of the Courtyard lobby is the newly enhanced GoBoard® 4.0, which presents local information, maps, weather, and headline news on a 55-inch LCD touch screen. Designed with today's busy traveler in mind, the award-winning GoBoard® features mobile integration, enabling guests to send directions from the GoBoard® directly to their smartphones. Guests can also touch the screen for immediate access to detailed flight information for local airports, popular entertainment and local event information, as well as walking directions.

Throughout this Foggy Bottom hotel near the National Mall, guests can connect to complimentary Wi-Fi, and there are ample electrical outlets in the lobby to power digital devices. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

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 are conveniently located by side exits.

The nine-story hotel features an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and guest laundry, and offers three meeting rooms with 1,300 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 65 people.
