Commonwealth Lodging adds properties in Virginia, Ohio

Commonwealth Lodging Management adds three new properties to its management portfolio in the coming month: the Wyndham Garden Norfolk (Va.) Downtown; Residence Inn by Marriott Youngstown Boardman/Poland (Ohio); and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Youngstown Boardman/Poland (Ohio). Commonwealth Lodging will oversee all operations and repositioning efforts for these hotels.

Wyndham Garden Norfolk Downtown was a former Golden Triangle Hotel, an iconic hotel in Norfolk, Va., credited with leading the city’s urban revitalization when it opened in the 1960s. Since then, the hotel has traded under several franchises, most recently Wyndham Garden Inn. For the past decade it hosted a large Navy contract for lodging and was largely unavailable for corporate travelers, conferences, large social events, and sports teams.

The hotel has been recently updated with a new guestroom furniture package and Commonwealth Lodging will spearhead re-conception of its restaurant in the coming months. This hotel now caters to a range of clients, including government and business travelers, sports groups, Virginia Beach/Norfolk tourism, and social event organizers. With 15,000 square feet of meeting space and more than 200 rooms, the hotel can accommodate groups of up to 300 people.

With 78 well-equipped suites, the Residence Inn by Marriott Youngstown Boardman/Poland hotel meets the needs of long-term travelers seeking comfort and convenience. The property is set to undergo a comprehensive transformation, promising newly furnished guest rooms, a modernized residential style lobby, updated fitness equipment and inviting new outdoor furniture for the pool and backyard fire pit/grilling area. Residence Inn is positioned to offer guests a home away from home experience.

Adjacent to the Residence Inn, the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Youngstown Boardman/Poland has 62 rooms designed to improve the stay experience. This property will also undergo comprehensive renovation with newly furnished guestrooms, lobby, and refreshed fitness and pool areas.

“As we continue to expand our portfolio, the growth strategy at Commonwealth Lodging is centered on adding value for our investment partners and management clients," Chief Development Officer Ed Denton said in a statement. "We are committed to identifying opportunities that not only enhance our brand presence but also deliver exceptional returns and sustainable growth for all stakeholders involved.”
