PHILADELPHIA – As the popularity of The Navy Yard booms, the demand for hospitality continues to rise as well. In response to this exponential growth, Courtyard Philadelphia South at The Navy Yard spent $8 million to expand its property. The hotel now boasts an additional 40 more rooms designed for today's traveler.

General Manager Derek Beckman said he is enthusiastic to share these fresh spaces with visitors staying in The City of Brotherly Love.

"Since over 150 major companies and organizations are situated in The Navy Yard, it comes to no surprise that there is a need for more hotel rooms," Beckman said. "With this expansion, we'll be able to handle and accommodate more visitors than we ever have before. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, our guests can expect the right blend of attentive services and modern comfort that help them move toward a successful travel experience."

When visitors enter their quarters, they will notice sleek decor and a relaxing ambiance emphasized by a muted color palette. Corporate professionals can efficiently finish assignments with expansive work desks and ergonomic chairs, while complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-panel TVs are available to help guests stay well-connected and entertained. Weary travelers can find some much-needed rest on pillow top mattresses with crisp linens, custom comforters and fluffy pillows. Guests can upgrade to the hotel's home-inspired suites with private bedrooms and living rooms when more space is desired.

Not only is the Philadelphia Courtyard a popular choice among business travelers, but sports lovers will appreciate the hotel's unbeatable location near the homes of Philadelphia's favorite teams. Guests can easily walk to catch a professional baseball game at Citizens Bank Park, join the roaring crowd of football fans at Lincoln Financial Field and witness every slam dunk or slap shot at Wells Fargo Center. For golf enthusiasts, Franklin D. Roosevelt Golf Club is just a mile away.

Of course, no Philadelphia trip is complete without visiting the historic Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Travelers can hop abroad a downtown train via the AT&T Station, which is less than a mile from the hotel.

Courtyard New York Manhattan/SoHo Completes $2m. Renovation
When the 120-room Courtyard New York Manhattan/SoHo opened in the Hudson Square area on Varick Street in 2010, it was a sleek, modern addition to a unique neighborhood known since the 1930s for its spacious lofts and printing houses.

Today, the area is home to designers, marketing and tech companies, trendy restaurants and shops – and now the completely reimagined SoHo hotel. The Greenwich Village hotel adopted a "120 rooms in 35 days" mantra to complete a $2 million remodel that included 119 rooms and one suite plus all public areas and the lobby-level Table 181 lounge. In a little over a month, taking three to four floors at a time, the renovation was completed quickly – which meant little inconvenience to guests who are now treated to a brand-new look with even more comfort.

Rooms at the boutique-style SoHo hotel feature custom-fitted furnishings in muted red and black colors and abstract touches, bringing in the feeling of the neighborhood. New wallcoverings, curtains, lamps and mattresses give the accommodations a fresh look. Each room has a refrigerator, coffee station, safe and complimentary Wi-Fi. On floors 14-20, city view rooms overlook either the Hudson River or Manhattan skyline, with the Empire State Building as a centerpiece. A unique design feature in several rooms is a glass wall that extends several inches beyond the surface of the building, giving guests a surreal glass niche in which to gaze out over the city.

The SoHo hotel's two-story lobby is a great place to relax or work in one of the intimate media pods or at a high-top seating area at Table 181, open for breakfast and evening beverages. Starbucks® drinks also are available.
