Courtyard Marriott, Gastonia, NC
The Courtyard Marriott, Charlotte-Gastonia, is a 135-room property with an open lobby, breakfast bar, pool, exercise room, a large meeting space, and event terrace. The property needed a new exercise room, design for the back patio, and a soft goods renovation which consisted of everything except desks and side tables.
CDS was brought on board to provide construction management and oversee the renovation. Taking down one floor at a time, from the top down, we minimized the time rooms were out of order and kept construction away from guests.
Rooms received new wall finishes, lamp shades, mattresses and bedding, window draperies, sofas, lounge chairs, and door hardware. In the public space, the fitness room needed to be moved. Working with the contractor and brand, we found that knocking down a wall and expanding into the current meeting space was the most cost-effective plan of action.
With CDS managing the renovation, the hotel could handle day-to-day operations and keep it running properly, passing its Quality Assurance audit on the first inspection.
