ANN ARBOR, MI—The Courtyard by Marriott-Ann Arbor here, which is managed by Raleigh, NC-based Alliance Hospitality Management based in Raleigh, NC, has revealed a newly designed lobby. This is the first Courtyard in the area featuring the “refreshing business” makeover.
The contemporary lobby welcomes guests with contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. Flexible seating options range from two communal tables in the middle of the action, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area. A signature element of the new lobby is the GoBoard technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen with local information, maps, weather and news, business and sports headlines. Guests can connect to free WiFi and there are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby
