“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.”

The new room design offers flexible spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “Luggage Drop” and plug personal devices into the “Tech Drop” ledge for seamless technology integration. Signature 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, spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A “Shower Nook” housing shampoos and towels makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.

The Courtyard LaGrange also includes the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open 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 a variety of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to unwind at the end of the day.

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

The four-story hotel includes a fitness center, a splash pad, a putting green, an elongated fire pit and a guest laundry, as well as two meeting rooms with 1,667 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 100 people.
