USA, Bethesda, Maryland. August 12, 2019

Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces is scheduled to open its doors in Las Cruces, New Mexico this Friday, July 5, 2019. Featuring an innovative lobby space as well as Courtyard's latest contemporary room design, the new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience. Located at 456 East University Avenue, the 126-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, developed by a partnership between Allen Sigmon Real Estate Group and Total Management Systems both of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and managed by Total Management Systems.

Adjacent to the Las Cruces Convention Center and just a short drive from New Mexico State University, the Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces offers guests convenient access to historic Old Mesilla, Spaceport America and Las Cruces International Airport.

Courtyard constantly researches trends and evolves to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. The hotel features artwork and a color palette - Aggie Crimson, that is motivated by New Mexico State University.

"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers," said Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands. "Today's technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to."

The contemporary room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Each room provides modern furnishings and amenities, plush bedding topped with crisp linens, a light desk on wheels with an ergonomic chair, complimentary WiFi and a large flat-panel television. The guestrooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces provides floor-to-ceiling windows offering awe-inspiring views of Las Cruces.

An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A "Shower Nook" housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.

The Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces features the brand's latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. As an extension to Courtyard's inviting public spaces, the newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. As an ideal casual dining destination, the new Bistro offers guests a wide variety of fresh Classic American menu items with a contemporary twist. In the evening, the Bistro Bar also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to enjoy at the end of the day. The entire menu was carefully designed to offer a variety of flavorful, fresh items to satisfy every palate from morning to night.

Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

The four-story hotel features an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and guest laundry, 675 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 72 people, and The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks and beverages.

The Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces and New Mexico State University has developed a partnership for Hotel Restaurant and Tourism Management students at the school. Hotel personnel, as well as staff of Total Management Systems will lecture in various classes throughout the school year and HRTM students will receive hands-on learning, and the opportunity to apply for internships and paid jobs at this property and all TMS properties.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
