COLUMBIA, SC—(Marketwired – Dec 31, 2014) – A refreshing new look has taken over a prominent hotel in downtown Columbia, SC as new owners announce the recent completion of major renovations at the Courtyard Columbia Downtown at USC.
Upgrading the hotel's interior, SREE Hotels, LLC has integrated the Courtyard's Refreshing Business Décor Package into the hotel lobby. Conveniently located in the heart of some of the city's most popular attractions, the lodging plays a vital role in the area's economic base. Making the acquisition in February, the hotel development and management company based in Charlotte, NC, now owns two Marriott–branded properties in the downtown district, the other being the SpringHill Suites Columbia Downtown/The Vista.
The Courtyard hotel's location in Columbia is adjacent to the University of South Carolina and its bulging population of more than 31,000 students, just across the street from the Carolina Coliseum, and within walking distance of Williams–Brice Stadium for USC football and Colonial Life Arena, home of the university's men's and women's basketball events, concerts and other headline attractions. The hotel is also near the South Carolina State House and other government buildings and the popular Historic Vista District for vibrant shopping, galleries, museums, restaurants and nightlife.
Featuring 5,000 square feet of meeting space, the newly remodeled Courtyard hotel offers locals and travelers access to the Capital Ballroom with a capacity of up to 400 people. Ideally located for business meetings, conferences, wedding receptions and other group events, the venue's amenities include professional catering for nearly any occasion and dedicated event managers to help ensure their success. A full–service business center along with meeting equipment and other business services that allow travelers to stay productive while traveling are also available.
The Bistro, located in the hotel lobby, offers hearty and healthy dining options for breakfast and dinner, along with specialty beverages made with Starbucks coffee and a full offering of evening cocktails and favorite drinks. Other on–site amenities include an outdoor pool and well–equipped fitness center. Future plans call for the construction of a cover over the hotel's existing poolside patio to create a refreshing outdoor lounge area.
