Courtyard by Marriott guests love football. So you can imagine all the lobby buzz for the Big Game.
Courtyard was right in the thick of it as the official hotel sponsor for the National Football League. We even set up a Courtyard by Marriott Lobby Zone at the NFL Experience where fans of both brands could meet players and really get into the spirit of the game. As you can see, it was a blast. The power brands have been great partners right from the start.
When Courtyard was launched in 1983, it created a new segment in the lodging industry. Today, with more than 900 hotels worldwide, it continues to plow past the competition. Every day the brand’s leaders are coming up with new strategies to advance our winning streak.
With Courtyard’s Refreshing Lobby, the brand scored big with a variety of fresh and tasty favorites at the new Bistro. We were the first to post calorie counts on our menus and now offer this great option to guests at more than 400 Courtyards nationwide. The menus offer big crowd pleasers like artichoke dip, buffalo wings, hummus, turkey BLTs and -- my personal favorite -- the Bistro Burger.
Hotel lobbies have long been a nice place to congregate. The open layout of new Courtyard lobbies is now ideal for everything from pop up meetings to a place to watch games, including the Super Bowl. Guests can relax, refresh, recharge and root for their favorite teams. Maybe next year my Redskins will get their chance.
How did your team do this season? And what did you snack on during the game? Leave a comment. I’d love to know.
