Huntington Hotel Group completed total renovation of two of their hotels in Carlsbad, California—a Courtyard by Marriott and a Residence Inn by Marriott.
The 145-room Courtyard by Marriott located at 5835 Owens Avenue in Carlsbad, CA, now features the brand’s intuitive Refreshing Business lobby concept, with open and flexible space, media pods and Wi-Fi. Each room features plush bedding, a functional work space, spacious bathrooms, a separate seating area and complimentary in-room high-speed Internet. Providing a warm, sophisticated environment, the hotel’s rooms accommodate guests’ desire to stay connected, productive and refreshed during their stay.
“Our guests want more services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. This renovation enhances those options,” according to Trent Selbrede, hotel general manager. The open, bright and contemporary lobby welcomes guests; dining has been redesigned with The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect.®, offering casual, flexible seating; the MarketTM, a 24/7 shop offers snacks, beverages and sundries. A key component of the Courtyard lobby is the newly enhanced GoBoard® 4.0, which presents local information, maps, weather and headline news on a 55-inch LCD touch screen. Designed with today’s busy traveler in mind, the award-winning GoBoard® features mobile integration, enabling guests to send directions from the GoBoard® directly to their smart phones. Guests can also touch the screen for immediate access to detailed flight information for local airports, popular entertainment and local event information, as well as walking directions.
Huntington Hotel Group also unveils a complete renovation of the 121-suite Residence Inn by Marriott in Carlsbad, California. The newly refreshed Residence Inn San Diego/Carlsbad offers guests flexible spaces and amenities to help maintain a healthy balance and routine while traveling. “Often our guests are on the road for an extended period and need space to spread out and restore their energy,” said Trent Selbrede, hotel general manager. “We offer them modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive.”
The spacious, residential-style studio, one bedroom and two bedroom suites offer accommodations that are larger than traditional hotel guestrooms. The updated kitchens outfitted with full-sized refrigerators and stainless steel appliances make living on the road easier for both business travelers on long stays and families on holiday. With a larger, expansive workspace, complimentary high-speed Internet access and a multitude of easily accessible outlets, guests are able to work efficiently throughout the suite.
Conveying the same feeling of comfortable living on the road, the hotel’s re-designed public spaces have been transformed into multi-functional living spaces where guests can relax or collaborate. Complimentary Wi-Fi and private “nooks” with personal high-definition flat screen televisions provide a private/public work space outside of the suite.
