MCR Development renovates two hotels in Monmouth County, N.J.

MCR Development (MCR) completed renovations at two hotels in Monmouth County, N.J.: the 105-room Residence Inn Neptune at Gateway Centre, located at 230 Jumping Brook Road in Neptune; and the 113-room Courtyard Wall at Monmouth Shores Corporate Park, located at 1302 Campus Parkway in Wall Township. Both renovations involved complete overhauls of the hotels' lobby areas and enhancements to guestrooms and public areas.

The redesigned lobby areas at each hotel have brand new furniture, plush carpeting, upgraded light fixtures, and new wall tones that create more welcoming environment. Sections of private meeting areas with individual televisions were created so that guests can host business meetings, informal events, or relax.

The lobby at the Courtyard Wall features a newly constructed Courtyard Bistro and evening bar, which serves Starbucks coffee and beverages, and is equipped with the GoBoard technology, an interactive touch screen that guests can use for weather and news updates or directions.
