The Courtyard by Marriott Wayne Fairfield in Wayne, N.J., is officially open.

Located at 263 Route 46, the 122-room hotel is owned by 263 Hotel Group and managed by Prestige Hotel Group of Albany, N.Y. The Courtyard Wayne Fairfield offers guests access to the Willowbrook Mall, Montclair State University, Yogi Berra Stadium and New York City.

Courtyard constantly researches trends and evolves to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette makes for a soothing and calm environment.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers,” Callette Nielsen, VP and global brand manager, Courtyard, said in a statement. “Today’s technology has changed how people travel. 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.”

Upon arrival, guests can store bags on a guestroom “luggage drop” and plug personal devices into the “tech drop” ledge for seamless technology integration.

Furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also includes a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.

An upgraded layout also changes the guestroom's bathroom experience. A “shower nook” housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.

The Courtyard Wayne Fairfield includes the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. The newly-designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. The Bistro offers guests a variety of “made to order” breakfast and dinner items, “grab and go” options and also has an array of cocktails, beer and wine.

Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library has several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

The three-story hotel has an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor fire pit, a fitness center and guest laundry and offers more than 1,587 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 100 people.
