NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Courtyard New York Manhattan/Fifth Avenue hotel's multi-million renovation seeks to accommodate business and leisure travelers with the sophistication of a fine tailored men's suit splashed with a touch of whimsy all created by Leo A Daly designers.
The Fifth Avenue New York hotel now boasts a blue and white color palette throughout that offers a clean-cut design appealing to busy adults. Geometric patterns, textures and pops of citron green and pink incorporate a youthful feel into the atmosphere.
A collage of borough names surrounding New York is one piece of artwork that will catch guests' attention the second they step into the hotel lobby. That's also where travelers will be greeted by friendly front desk staff stationed at individual welcome pedestals designed to ease the check-in process and make guests feel immediately welcomed and valued. The lobby in the Fifth Avenue NY hotel also features Courtyard's signature GoBoard, an interactive touchscreen giving travelers weather conditions, directions and news access at their fingertips.
Newly renovated rooms aim to provide just the right get-away after a full day of business meetings, training sessions or sightseeing opportunities. Guests will appreciate new wall coverings and carpet in their rooms. The same textures and colors from the lobby carry through in each of the guest rooms.
All rooms at the Fifth Avenue New York hotel feature irons and ironing boards, a large work area with complimentary high-speed Internet access, desk level electrical outlets and a two-line phone with voicemail and speakerphone capabilities to ensure professionals have everything they need to conduct business as usual. Once it's time to wind down for the night, guests can catch a movie or show on their flat-screen television while relaxing on comfortable king, queen or double beds topped with crisp linens, custom comforters and plenty of fluffy pillows.
Exercise enthusiasts wishing to continue their workout routines will enjoy the site's new health club with Life Fitness equipment. Cardiovascular machines from the global leader of the fitness industry as well as free weights ensure just the right workout. The Fifth Avenue hotel is also just steps away from Bryant Park and Central Park, great places for taking walks and jogging. Bryant Park is even equipped with free Wi-Fi so business professionals can get out and enjoy the outdoors while being productive at the same time.
Guests needing to utilize business services can do so in a new area that sets the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Fifth Avenue apart from other hotels near Fifth Avenue. The new business center offers high-speed Internet access and individual workspaces for privacy in addition to printing, faxing and copying services.
