Courtyard by Marriott to Open in Canfield This Month

CANFIELD, Ohio – Courtyard by Marriot plans to open its new 110-room hotel near the Kennsington Golf Club in the Westford Lifestyle Community this month, the company announced Wednesday.

The hotel will be operated as a Marriott franchise and owned by Kennsington Hospitality LLC and managed by Radius Hospitality, and includes new room designs that accommodate work, sleep, relaxation and preparing for meetings or a night out.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, Courtyard. “Today’s technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to.”

The five-story hotel features an oversized outdoor patio with fire pits and pizza ovens, an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and guest laundry, and offers 1,253 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 70 people as well as the Kennsington Grille serving American fare.

The new room design offers flexible and comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “luggage drop” and plug personal devices into the “tech drop” ledge for seamless technology integration.

Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom, according to the announcement. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.

Room features include an upgraded, more spacious bathroom layout with a shower nook to house shampoos and towels, making it easier to retrieve articles while in the shower.

“We are very excited to be managing this beautiful Courtyard by Marriott hotel and working alongside owner Chuck Whitman,” said Randy Budd, vice president of Radius Hospitality. “The location is just fabulous for drawing leisure guests, overlooking the Kennsington Golf Course and surrounded by shopping, entertainment, and retail. It’s the perfect brand for the Canfield/Youngstown market.”

The new hotel’s lobby is bright and makes for an excellent networking site, the company said.

The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing boarding passes for airlines and checking flight status.

The hotel also will offer a guest-recycling program. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal are conveniently located by side exits.

“We’re looking forward to the success of this brand new Courtyard entering the Canfield/Youngstown market and attracting guests of all kind,” said Kyle Southerlin, general manager, Courtyard Youngstown Canfield. “The excellent service we provide will be a key focus to ensure guest satisfaction and loyalty with our hotel and the Marriott brand.”
