College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center Project Features New Hotel Name, Guest Rooms, Meeting Space and Public Areas
COLLEGE PARK, MD -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 23, 2015 -- A multi-phase, multi-year renovation that brought dramatic changes -- including a new name -- to College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center is now complete.
This two building retreat at the University of Maryland University College and adjacent to the University of Maryland College Park campus began a dramatic metamorphosis in 2012 that has introduced flexible design and chic décor to every facet of the hotel.
"We've changed everything to present an enhanced guest experience, whether you are here for a business meeting or wedding, or to visit the local community and D.C. attractions," says Mike McCarthy, General Manager at the University of Maryland hotel.
Completed in April 2015, the final phase features 126 spacious, newly renovated hotel guest rooms. The design, by architectural firm HKS of Dallas, repeats the sleek, comfortable décor of 111 cozy guest rooms and executive studios in the Conference Center that were renovated during an earlier phase in 2013. The centrally located College Park, Maryland hotel features rooms in a soothing palette of navy, green and crimson; built-in custom storage and work areas; iHome keyboard docking stations; and art inspired by the collections of the hotel's owner, the University of Maryland University College. Approximately 76 tubs have been removed to make way for showers in new tile and marble bathrooms.
Perfect for guests attending corporate or social events in the conference center, the Concierge Lounge now has a complimentary computer station for printing boarding passes, checking e-mail or making your next Marriott reservation. The Presidential Suite was completely redone adding a contemporary new design, wet bar and a powder room for the parlor and enlarged bathroom in the bedroom portion. A stunning meeting/dining table and chrome accents complete the suite's décor. The main lobby also received notable upgrades and digital way-finding displays will be added soon.
Travelers can rest easy knowing the Maryland hotel is eco-friendly. Renovations to the hotel building -- North America's first LEED-certified hotel when it opened in 2004 -- cap off an extraordinary transformation of guest rooms, public space and 40,000 square feet of function space. Recent changes to the Hyattsville, Maryland hotel include:
- The Common, a three-meal modern American pub and kitchen featuring locally sourced cuisine and artisan drinks
- New 6,700 square-foot Potomac Ballroom
- Renovated 8,200 square-foot Chesapeake Ballroom
- New 250-seat conference dining room
- 18 redecorated meeting rooms
- Reinvented Marriott Hotels Greatroom, business center and
In 2014, the hotel's name was changed from Marriott Inn and Conference Center University of Maryland University College to reflect its new, streamlined décor and technology designed to meet the needs of the modern mobile, social lifestyle.
