Turnberry Associates Completes Courtyard Orlando Downtown  Brand Refresh

Orlando, FL, March 9, 2012 – The Courtyard in Downtown Orlando kicked off 2012 by unveiling its rejuvenated appearance with cutting-edge amenities, and no, we’re not talking about fresh paint and complimentary Wi-Fi. Everything from its refreshed lobby to enhanced meeting rooms, this Downtown Orlando hotel awaits your next Florida holiday.
“Our refreshed lobby is the core of the renovation,” says Shari O'Hara, Director of Sales at Courtyard Orlando Downtown. “The twilight colors of blues, grays, and pops of orange create a trendy, but sophisticated ambiance.”
Furthermore, the lobby is not only attractive to the eye, but also tech savvy with an interactive GoBoard®, a boarding pass station, a home theater, a business library, and Media Pods. “The new lobby is where high tech meets high style,” describes O'Hara. “You’ll find guests working in the living spaces, reading a book from the library, or watching the big game on our home theater system.” On top of that, Courtyard's signature GoBoard® allows guests to interact & research local shopping, restaurants, and even a taxi service right in the convenience of the lobby.
If the lobby doesn’t have you at hello, The Bistro sure will. The Courtyard Bistro offers fresh, savory food choices for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And with Starbucks® specialty coffee and a well stocked bar, The Bistro is a popular spot all-day long.
Additional upgrades of the Courtyard Orlando Downtown include:
  • New Board Room  - Seating for up to 10, includes a flat screen TV, microwave, mini refrigerator, leather executive chairs, and drop down screen with remote.
  • New Magnolia Room – Seating for up to 65, includes 900 square feet, drop down screen, Wi-Fi, and access to the courtyard.
  • New Hibiscus Room – Seating for up to 65, includes 900 square feet, classroom setting, Wi-Fi, drop down screen, & a wet bar.
  • New 24-hour Market - Located in the lobby area, it’s the perfect place to grab a drink or a late night snack.
  • Upgraded Fitness Center
  • Outdoor Heated Pool
