LBA Hospitality Opens Courtyard by Marriott Hilton Head Island in South Carolina

USA, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. July 27, 2020

Courtyard by Marriott Hilton Head Island opened its doors recently. 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 79 Pope Avenue, the 115-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Southeastern Real Estate Group and managed by LBA Hospitality of Dothan, Alabama.

Situated in the heart of Hilton Head Island and just a short walk to the beach, the Courtyard by Marriott Hilton Head Island offers guests convenient access to Shelter Cove Towne Centre, Sea Pines Forest Preserve and Harbour Town Lighthouse.

Courtyard continues to innovate the guest experience to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette provides an elevated and modernized look and feel during the full guest experience from booking to stay.

"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 new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the "Luggage Drop" and plug personal devices into the "Tech Drop" ledge for seamless technology integration. Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The "LoungeAround" sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room. Each room also provides the latest in-room entertainment technology, allowing guests to access their Hulu and Netflix accounts, as well as YouTube through the large HDTV.

The Courtyard by Marriott Hilton Head Island 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, 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.

Perched atop the new Courtyard by Marriott Hilton Head Island is the High Tide Rooftop Bar. This sophisticated rooftop space is Coligny Beach's only rooftop bar and pool. This rooftop oasis features a resort-style swimming pool, a full-service bar and three tropical cabanas, all offering panoramic views of Hilton Head Island and the Atlantic Ocean. Other amenities include a well-equipped fitness center, guest laundry and 960 square feet of meeting space.

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.
