Burlington Courtyard Marriott Upgrades


Burlington Courtyard Marriott Upgrades Guest Rooms, Suites as Part of a Total $1.4 Million Makeover

The Courtyard’s recent transformation includes new carpet, drapes, lighting, furnishings, and linens; remodeled lobby added The Bistro, media pods and GoBoard back in 2010

The Burlington Courtyard’s final phase of a $1.4 million remodel turned its guest rooms and suites upside down to ensure maximum relaxation in true sophistication. The first phase of the project in 2010 brought the addition of The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. and a transformative lobby along with major upgrades to the hotel’s fitness center and meeting rooms.

Visitors will see and feel a difference the second they step foot into one of 118 rooms or 4 suites with fresh carpets, draperies, light fixtures and wall vinyls. Comfy, thick mattresses with custom comforters, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows will ease guests into a sound night’s sleep, Up-to-date spacious desks and ergonomic chairs allow business travelers to finish jobs quickly and on time. In the separate seating areas, new oversized chairs and ottomans help guests relax while they watch their favorite shows on HDTVs or surf the Internet thanks to complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access. Other amenities include coffeemakers, ironing boards and mini-refrigerators. The renovation also includes the bathrooms, where Paul Mitchell products help visitors get ready for a new day or night on the town.

The Burlington Courtyard’s total refreshing makeover is part of Marriott’s commitment to provide comfortable and flexible areas for guests to eat, drink, work, socialize and sleep. That included the complete overhaul of the lobby, where welcome pods replaced the traditional front desk so staff members can provide one-on-one attention during the check-in and check-out processes. The addition of media pods along the perimeter of the new welcome center gives guests cozy areas to watch flat-screen TVs with personal remotes and enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet access. A Boarding Pass Station houses computers and printers to help ease transportation worries. The high-tech lobby also features a 52-inch interactive GoBoard where travelers can find current weather conditions, get directions to the Tanger Outlet or Elon University, seek the latest flight information and statuses at either RDU  or PTI Airport and check out the day’s news and sports scores, all with the touch of a finger.

The centerpiece of the remodeled lobby, The Bistro, helped raise the standard for dining with menus featuring seasonal fruits, burgers, pizzas, salads and sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients. The casual, café-style restaurant sports a large communal table, where families or small groups of business travelers can gather for a hearty breakfast or dinner, and comfortable bar seating so guests can sip on freshly brewed Starbucks drinks, a number of craft, domestic and imported beers and custom-ordered cocktails prepared by a friendly bartender.

Other highlights of the renovation include new carpets, vinyl surfaces and upgrades to the state-of-the-art fitness center with Life Fitness equipment featuring individual TV monitors.

For business travelers, the hotel is a short drive to the numerous LabCorp facilities and also to Glen Raven Mills. Guests also can take advantage of the over 2200 square feet of event space for all types of meetings. Whatever the reason for travelers to visit Burlington, NC, the complete renovation of the hotel in the heart of the Triad of the state will keep business travelers ready to go as well as offer vacationers updated comfort, style and technology.
