Renovation of Middleton, WI Hotel Brings New Lobby, Dining & Meeting Spaces

Courtyard Madison West/Middleton Offer Today's Travelers the Flexibility They Want

MIDDLETON, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- It's out with the old and in with the new at the Courtyard Madison West/Middleton, where they're putting the final touches on a renovation that's bringing big changes to both guest rooms and public spaces.

The most visible changes at the hotel in Madison, WI are in the lobby, which features the brand's new Refreshing Business concept, where visitors will now find a modern, flexible space that invites them to sit back and relax, get down to work or enjoy a good meal.

The new lobby was designed with multi-tasking travelers in mind and features free Wi-Fi, ample electrical outlets and a business library featuring several complimentary computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status. A semi-enclosed lounge area, communal table and media pods allow guests to concentrate on work, meet with clients or make new friends with fellow travelers. Its signature element is the GoBoard®, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather and news, business and sports headlines. Guests can also use the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.

"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel," Janis Milham, vice president, global brand manager, Courtyard by Marriott, says. "Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether traveling alone or with colleagues."

The new Madison, WI hotel lobby, featuring a bright, contemporary design and vivid colors, is also where guests will find The Bistro, serving high-quality, healthy options for breakfast and light evening fare, and the 24/7 Market, offering snacks, beverages and sundries around the clock.

The hotel's Madison, WI accommodations also have a fresh new look that's contemporary yet comfortable and includes plush bedding, a spacious bathroom, complimentary Wi-Fi and flexible spaces that allow guests to work and relax.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
