DFW Courtyard by Marriott Renovations

Irving, Texas

Created an open and convenient space for guests while implementing Marriott’s new lobby and beverage concept.

The Marriott lobby brand prototype underwent significant modifications to engage guests in the public space. These changes include demolition to open the space and implement a new curved bar concept, as well as new technology including a touch screen detailing local information. The design team customized floor patterns and furniture details at the owner’s request outside of the brand standards, yet keeping the same feeling of the overall prototype. The millwork package also drastically changes, replacing the reception design with new “welcome pods” for a more personal interaction between staff and guests, a “grab and go” store area, a communal table, media pods, a boarding pass station, a business center, and a coffee bar.

Within the courtyard exterior space, we created a trellis over the first floor guestroom terraces which were complimented by a large outdoor dining, seating and fireplace public area. The overall look of the renovation gives the guest a relaxing space to retreat outside of their guestroom.
