CHICAGO, Nov.29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --The 337-room Courtyard Chicago
Downtown/River North recently completed a major million-dollar redesign of its
lobby. The Chicago hotel near Magnificent Mile now features Courtyard's new
refreshing business lobby concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility
to work and socialize however they choose while on the road.

The contemporary lobby welcomes travelers with vivid contrasting colors. The
traditional front desk was replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create
more personal interactions when guests check in.

A signature element is the exclusive GoBoard® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch
screen packed with local information, maps, weather and news, business and
sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find
restaurants, local attractions and directions. As a downtown Chicago meeting
facility, an enlarged business library features free Wi-Fi, several
complimentary computer terminals, electrical outlets, a free printer and
computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking
flight statuses.

Green has been Courtyard's signature color since Marriott launched the brand
25 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a guest
recycling program. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal are
conveniently located by side exits.
