Late last week, J.W. Marriott, Jr., the CEO and chairman of the board of Marriott International, Inc. paid a visit to the newly-refurbished Courtyard by Marriott hotel at the Baltimore-Washington Airport (BWI).

"It's a real transformation from a standard lobby, front desk and a few restaurant seats into a happening place," commented the chairman. "It's convenient and well-designed -- the colors are warm, friendly and inviting. I think it's a homerun." The CEO and chairman is a blogger and has written about his tour of the property and added some photographs to his blog.

Courtyard by Marriott was the first brand that was created for business travelers by asking those customers what they were looking for in a hotel. The renovations at the BWI hotel have completely redefined the guest’s experience in the lobby.

This is a "power brand" for Marriott, which has designed the lobby in a way that it makes it appealing for guests to leave their rooms to socialize or work, whether they are traveling with colleagues or alone.

"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what business travelers want from a hotel," noted the vice president and global brand manager of Courtyard by Marriott, Brian King. "Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing."
