Courtyard Hotel opens in Summerville, South Carolina

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

SUMMERVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA – Courtyard by Marriott Charleston Summerville opened its doors in the Nexton community of Summerville, South Carolina. Located at the intersection of I-26 and Highway 17A, Nexton is at the heart of metro Charleston’s most vibrant growth-it’s a place where businesses, homes, shops, restaurants and schools are just a stroll or short bike ride from each other. 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 1510 Rose Drive, the hotel offers 93 rooms and three suites and will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Sheep Island Hospitality Partners I, an affiliate of Blanchard & Calhoun Commercial of Augusta, Georgia. LBA Hospitality will serve as this hotel’s third party manager. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard Charleston Summerville offers guests convenient access to historic downtown Summerville and historic downtown Charleston, as well as Middleton Place, Magnolia Gardens and Cypress Gardens. Rates begin at $119 per night.

Beau Benton, LBA President says, “We are thrilled to be a key part of this project. Our General Manager Sean Rowe and his team are fully-prepared to help our guests make the most of their stay.”

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 Janis Milham, senior vice president, Modern Essentials and Extended Stay Brands. “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.

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 Charleston Summerville 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. The new hotel will be wired for speed and access to the Internet as part of South Carolina’s first all fiber gigabit community.

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 outdoor swimming pool with a fire pit and spacious lounge area, an electric car-charging station, a fitness center, a business center equipped with the latest technology and guest laundry. It also offers the 1,150 square foot Rose Meeting Room and the 130 square foot Azalea Board Room.
