Residence Inn by Marriott

The newly remodeled Residence Inn by Marriott is finished and ready to share its new look and design with visitor’s traveling to our community. A local company Bevis Construction did the renovations giving the hotel upgrade a more contemporary design. Currence said first phase of the remodel was focused on remodeling the 80 rooms. Each suite received new paint, soft seating, curtains, shower curtains, lamps, carpet, and pictures. The rooms were lightened up with colors of teals, grays and touches of browns. Marriott also approved taking the vinyl off the walls in the hallways and applying a texture and paint. Currence said they donated their old items to two different local charities. New colors in the public areas are grays, blacks and whites. Marriott’s goal is to target the Millennial with a more contemporary destination. They have tripled the size of the fitness center and have added state-of-the-art equipment. The guests enjoy the new workout center and the staff says they have seen an increase in usage.

Residence Inn by Marriott is located at 3221 Tubbs Road & US 27 South.

The new breakfast area provides space for guests to gather any time of day.

The serving area has been enlarged and completely remodeled with quartz countertops and new contemporary style cabinets. They added a community table and soft seating to the breakfast area and also changed the conference room into more soft seating for their guests. The hotel felt the need to update their outdoor patio area so added a beautiful stone fire pit and enlarged the outdoor patio area. The also added a new top-end grill that has been encased in stone with a granite counter top.

The updated pool area is very inviting.
