Walla Walla’s new Courtyard by Marriott was celebrated Tuesday as the hospitality brand’s 1,000th hotel.
A grand opening celebration for the 120-room hotel, at 550 West Rose St., was held Tuesday afternoon.
The Walla Walla hotel features new room designs including an area to plug in personal electronic devices, a sofa and a mobile desk on wheels, as well as fitness, eating and business features. It also has an exhibition kitchen for cooking classes and demonstrations, including guest chefs, wine pairings and other wine tasting events.
In honor of the 1,000th hotel milestone milestone, all Marriott Rewards guests who checked into any Courtyard by Marriott worldwide Tuesday received 1,000 points as the brand’s milestone gift, an estimated 50 million points.
Courtyard by Marriott is the world’s eighth largest hospitality brand. The brand, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2013, is Marriott’s second largest revenue generator.
