Strand Hospitality Services today announced that it has assumed management of the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West. Located at 2350 Westbelt Drive in Ohio, the hotel will undergo a complete $3 million guest-rooms renovation in 2016 and will remain open during the progress.
Ideally situated off Interstate 70 and 270, the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West is located just minutes from downtown Columbus and Ohio State University, as well as other area attractions. The 150-room hotel boasts 8,790 sq. feet of meeting space between eight rooms. The Grand Ballroom, the hotel’s largest venue, can accommodate up to 300 guests for weddings and other events. Personalized, onsite catering also is available.
“Strand will work closely with owners, Conor Acquisitions of Fort Myers, Fla., to ensure that we build on the hotel’s current successes,” said Andrew Pace, senior vice president of Strand Hospitality. “Strand strategically has continued to expand our partnerships, management and franchising with Marriott International. In addition to the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West, Strand Hospitality will begin construction on four Marriott-branded hotels in 2016."
The Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West features an open contemporary lobby with the brand’s trademarked Bistro, which offers an appealing array of hot breakfast choices in the morning and light dinner and cocktail options in the evening. Guests also can visit The Market™, a 24-hour shop filled with snacks and other items. Other amenities include an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and 24-hour business center.
With headquarters shared between Charlotte and Myrtle Beach, Strand also has operations in Atlanta. Founded more than 45 years ago, the company began as a developer/owner of full-service Holiday Inns, gradually moving into third-party management. Today with more than 30 high-quality hotels in its management portfolio, the company continues to grow through development, joint ventures and third-party management. It specializes in two- to four-star hotel segments and is approved to operate hotels under all the leading hotel brand families, including Marriott, Hilton, Starwood, Wyndham, Choice and IHG.
