This Pennsylvania Marriott completes $2M facelift

(Courtyard Bethlehem)

Meyer Jabara Hotels completed a $2-million renovation of its Courtyard by Marriott property in Bethlehem, Pa. The renovations include a complete refresh of its 134 guestrooms and a revitalized lobby, now with a bistro offering all-day dining.

Denise Maiatico, VP for Meyer Jabara Hotels of the Lehigh Valley, said in  a statement that this renovation is a reinvestment in an already-successful asset and an economic investment in the community.

“When this property first opened, the area was woefully underdeveloped,” Maiatico said. “We were among the first businesses to come to this corridor. Today, business development in the Lehigh Valley is booming, and we are proud to be an anchor growing alongside them.”


The Courtyard by Marriott Bethlehem is located at 2220 Emrick Blvd., and was awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2016. The hotel's public area has a registration area illuminated by Moravian stars handmade in Bethlehem, a large 52-inch LCD touch screen called a Go Board where guests can access localized information, including where to find restaurants local attractions and directions and stations for printing airplane boarding passes.

Prior to the lobby facelift, MJH updated the hotel’s guestrooms to also mirror the brand’s new guestroom concept. The room renovation includes new carpet, drapery and wall vinyl, along with new sofas and lamps.

“We are proud of the presence we’ve established in the Lehigh Valley with this Courtyard by Marriott property, and remain committed to its continued success,” said Justin Jabara, VP of development for MJH. “Meyer Jabara Hotels is devoted to keeping our properties at the highest level of quality for our guests and the communities we serve.”
