Ocean Properties, Ltd. Hotels & Resorts Converting the 351 room Holiday Inn
Logan Airport to the Courtyard by Marriott Logan Airport, Boston

BOSTON MA (November 16, 2007) -- Ocean Properties, Ltd. Hotels & Resorts of Portsmouth NH and Delray Beach FL is moving forward on its conversion of the Holiday Inn Logan Airport to the Courtyard by Marriott Logan Airport hotel. Following a $15 million renovation, the refurbished and rebranded property will open July 1, 2008, providing 356 guestooms, just one mile from Logan International Airport. The hotel remains open during renovations.  The hotel is located at 225 Mcclellan Highway, Boston, MA.

In addition to its airport proximity, the hotel is located three miles from downtown Boston, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), and the Financial District. A complimentary 24-hour airport and train station shuttle will provide easy, convenient access for hotel guests. Amenities include 2,375 square feet of banquet and meeting space, a full-service restaurant and complimentary on-site parking for guests. 

"The reason for our conversion of this hotel is that Courtyard by Marriott is a highly specialized brand, serving business and leisure travelers with a distinctive set of comforts and amenities that stand out in the crowded range of hotel offerings," said Steve Nalen, General Manager. "We anticipate strong interest from travelers who have come to depend on the Courtyard brand and its 700 properties across the US and in 22 other countries for their 'smartly redesigned' rooms and services." 

The Courtyard by Marriott Boston Logan guestrooms will feature luxurious new beds, stunning bathrooms with massaging showerheads, roomy workspaces, comfortable seating and flat-screen TVs. Guests can also take advantage of a redesigned business library with high-speed, wireless Internet access and all the tools necessary to stay in touch, a 24/7 market for fresh, fast snacks and refreshments, and breakfast options to fit every schedule. The hotel will have first-rate exercise facilities and an indoor pool. Meeting space includes a 1,175 sq. ft. ballroom and a 200 sq. ft. boardroom.
