Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown renovates public spaces

HHM assumed management of the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown in San Diego, Calif., completed the $6.4-million renovation of the property’s public spaces known as The Lobby, meeting rooms and guestrooms.

The Lobby's concept, which has a restaurant, lounge, Starbucks espresso bar, Billiard room and general seating areas, was designed to cater to the “changing tastes of today's traveler.” As such, The Lobby has a restaurant and lounge that is a standalone destination, with locally brewed draft and bottled beer to accompany the dining offerings.
