The Courtyard New Haven Wallingford in Connecticut Completes
$800,000 Renovation of its Public Spaces

WALLINGFORD, CT:  May 5, 2011
– The Courtyard New Haven Wallingford has just completed an $800K renovation. The work was done to update the property's public spaces including the lobby, The Bistro- Eat. Drink. Connect., fitness center, meeting rooms, and patio experience.

The highlight of the renovations is the new state-of-the-art lobby which welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, copper, and red.  The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in.  Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the center of the lobby, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.  A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoard® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines.  Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.  The entire hotel has high-speed wireless Internet access.

The lobby also features The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. — a new dining concept of casual, flexible seating; easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, and a full bar so guests can unwind.

Other changes include the complete renovation of the meeting rooms with new carpet, vinyl, lighting, and woodwork; and new outdoor furniture enabling guests to sit and relax with a cool beverage or an appetizer.

To celebrate the hotel's new look, the property is offering special Weekend Advance Purchase rates starting at $89 per night, for bookings 72 hours prior to arrival. The offer is valid from June 1 to December 31, 2011. Use promotional code: ADP to book.
