Courtyard by Marriott
Cree® TrueWhite® Technology helps the Courtyard by Marriott showcase its upscale lobby area while allowing the hotel to realize considerable energy savings. Marriott management is expecting these savings to bring payback on its investment in approximately 15 months.
The Courtyard Louisville East proudly represents a distinguished brand. The first Courtyard by Marriott® location was built in 1983 in Atlanta and was Marriott’s initial sister brand. That brand was always meant to primarily target business travelers who wanted quality service at affordable prices. Over the years though, it has come to cater to the leisure traveler as well.
A new-style lobby for Courtyard by Marriott locations across the country debuted in 2008, offering guests a variety of upscale amenities. The lobby now includes a redesigned restaurant/bar area, The Bistro, offering a variety of breakfast and dinner options, an evening bar and specialty beverages; an expanded business center area; a more modern lounge and seating area; and expanded areas for The Market, a small store in the lobby.
To showcase its beautifully redesigned lobby and maximize energy efficiency, Courtyard Louisville East went shopping for a top-shelf lighting system.
