This is an upscale business persons haven, complete with every high-tech gadget and connection port the techno fan could ever dream of. What goes best with techno geeks? How about their own in-hotel Starbucks? This posh palace houses a 24 hour Starbucks. The indoor pool was moved outdoors and is heated. The pool move made way for a new 1,600 square foot conference room that accommodates over 200 people. The remodel also came with the new “Bistro” restaurant and full service bar. This Courtyard is ready for your business meeting, conference, wedding reception, baby/bridal shower or your weekend getaway. This Courtyard is related to the Residence Inn located off of I-20.
