Raleigh, N.C. – Nov. 2, 2016 – The Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley completed an extensive renovation, adding style and refreshing nearly every area of the property including new, experience-enhancing amenities such as fully-renovated and modernized guest rooms, enticing public spaces, a redesigned, modern lobby, new outdoor pool and a well-equipped fitness center. Additionally, a new ballroom was added, doubling meeting space to over 21,000 square feet.
The renovation and development was led by owner and leading investment company Rockbridge, and the property will be managed by Concord Hospitality Enterprises. The newly redesigned property will fit the needs of all travelers with thoughtfully-designed casual spaces to connect and a centralized, multi-purpose event space for groups to meet.
"Our extensive renovation touched every aspect of this hotel," noted Jim Merkel, Rockbridge CEO. "The newly, repositioned property will once again be a leader in the Raleigh market.”
“Renovations to the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley were done with our guests’ comfort at the forefront,” said Dan Freeland, general manager of the property. “Our hope is that each guest has an uplifting experience and the opportunity to recharge during their stay with us.”
Lobby renovations are incorporated within the Marriott Greatroom concept, a global brand design and identity program for Marriott hotels worldwide. The Greatroom Lobby offers a stylish, modern, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere with all day menus for light bites, shareables or meals, with full access to technology.
