Courtyard by Marriott Austin Pflugerville is slated to open its doors next Monday. GM Jeffery Ossenkop and director of sales Kris Kerfoot will lead the management team at the property. The 147-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by Dallas' SRH Hospitality Pflugerville Realty.
The new Courtyard provides access to Typhoon Texas, Circuit of The Americas Race Track and Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium, home of the Round Rock Express.
The new hotel also has a lobby space and guestrooms with the brand's latest room design, including hybrid zones for working, sleeping and relaxing with indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette.
“Today’s technology has changed how people travel," Callette Nielsen, VP and GBM, Courtyard, said in a statement. "Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to.”
Guests can store bags on the luggage drop and plug personal devices into the tech drop ledge in the hotel guestroom. New furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom, including the "Lounge Around" sofa and a light desk on wheels.
The Courtyard Austin Pflugerville also offers the Refreshing Business lobby with media pods, free Wi-Fi, various seating zones and The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. Multiple electrical outlets can be accessed throughout the hotel, and the property's business library has several computer terminals, a printer and separate computer stations for printing airline boarding passes and checking flight statuses.
The Pflugerville Courtyard will also debut the brand's guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal will be near side exits.
The four-story hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool with a terrace and a fire pit, a fitness center, guest laundry and 20,177 square feet of meeting space for functions of up to 1,100 people.
The new Courtyard will increase Courtyard by Marriott's portfolio of more than 1,000 locations in nearly 50 countries and territories. Marriott International is based in Bethesda, Md., and has 6,000 properties in 30 hotel brands spanning 122 countries and territories.
