WASHINGTON – May 3, 2006 – Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE:MAR) announced that the 146-room Courtyard by Marriott in Andover, MA has recently completed a major renovation of its guest rooms, lobby and public spaces. The enhancements are based on feedback from hotel guests and are part of Courtyard’s nationwide hotel reinvention designed to meet the needs of today’s travelers. 

“Courtyard was launched based on the needs and desires of business travelers and now we are reinventing the brand on the basis of new customer research and recent product testing. Our updated design concepts provide greater comfort and functionality to our guests,” said Mike Jannini, executive vice president, brand management, Marriott International. 

The new guest rooms and public space have been upgraded with the addition of functional enhancements and new décor and furnishings. Practical additions such as The Market, a 24/7 food and beverage pantry and business library, featuring individual workstations with high-speed data ports and ergonomic chairs combine with aesthetic elements including the use of curved surfaces, rich woods, designer fabrics, granite counters and superior lighting.
