Courtyard hotel open in Hershey, Pennsylvania

Innovative design and flexible space tailors to the needs of today’s travelers.

 

HERSHEY, PA – Courtyard by Marriott Hershey Chocolate Avenue opened its doors in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Friday, May 5, 2017. Featuring an innovative lobby space as well as Courtyard’s latest contemporary room design, the new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience.

Located at 515 East Chocolate Avenue, the 120-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Bears Creek Hershey Hotel LLC and managed by Shaner Hotel Group of State College, Pennsylvania. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard Hershey Chocolate Avenue offers guests convenient access to Hershey Park, the Hershey Store and the Giant Center.

Courtyard constantly researches trends and evolves to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette makes for a soothing and calm environment.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, Courtyard. “Today’s technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to.”

The new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “Luggage Drop” and plug personal devices into the “Tech Drop” ledge for seamless technology integration.

Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room. Each room also features the latest in-room entertainment technology, allowing guests to access their Hulu and Netflix accounts, as well as YouTube, Pandora, and Crackle, through the HDTV in their guestroom.

An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A “Shower Nook” housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.

The Courtyard Hershey Chocolate Avenue also offers the Refreshing Business lobby environment, where guests can enjoy an open and bright area outside of their rooms. Along with media pods, complimentary Wi-Fi and a variety of seating zones, the redefined space is ideal for everything from pop-up meetings to social gatherings. The lobby also features The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect, offering casual, flexible seating; easy access to food and high quality, healthy menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, cocktails, wine and beer so guests can unwind.

Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched the brand 30 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal are conveniently located by side exits.

The four-story hotel features an indoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a courtyard with barbecue grills and a fire pit, and guest laundry, and offers 1,000 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 80 people.
