Courtyard Santo Domingo announces lobby remodeling

Courtyard Santo Domingo by Marriott has announced a total renovation of its lobby to better respond to the needs of the guests. As part of the hotel’s Refreshing Business Strategy, the new lobby will combine functionality, aesthetics, technology and a fine-tuned mix of services to provide guests with greater control of the area. The renovation promises that high tech and high touch will meet in high style in the new “living space” where there will be increased flexibility to work, relax, eat, drink and socialize at each person’s own pace. The idea for the space is to help guests make successful connections.

Senior sales & marketing manager Gianell Pena says, “The Refreshing Business concept is more than just a modern product, it’s what our guests have said they want from us. This initiative is about moving from transactions to connections and empowering our associates with tools to deliver the best service in the city of Santo Domingo.”

She said that the remodeling would affect the lobby, the first-floor restaurant and business center. Restaurant and business center services will continue open in a temporary area of the hotel during the construction. All other services will remain open to guests.

The renovation will begin on 30 November 2015 and is scheduled for completion by early February 2016.

The renovation of the hotel follows the renovations at Marriott properties in the Dominican Republic, including the Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua and the new JW Marriott Santo Domingo.
