Newark Airport Hotel Shows Off Sophisticated New Lobby and Meeting Space

Renovations to the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott Result in Stylish, Tech-Savvy Spaces

NEWARK, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Meeting planners and business professionals hoping to make the most of their next conference will be in awe of the recent renovations to the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott. Not only has its 30,000 square feet of event space been overhauled and upgraded, but the lobby has received significant design attention to enhance its functionality and aesthetic. That means that this Newark Airport hotel is now dressed to impress and designed to outperform any other property for travelers arriving for business or pleasure.

The changes speak to the hotel's recognition of a new type of traveler: the Millennial. No longer content to stay holed up in one's room during a trip, today's traveler likes to engage with his/her surroundings, whether it's in the lobby for an impromptu gathering of colleagues, or during a conference.

In a departure from other Rutgers University hotels, this property has responded accordingly. Offering the newest meeting space in the area, the hotel now encompasses a 10,000-square-foot ballroom with the capacity to display vehicles and even airplanes for awe-inspiring exhibits. LED lighting, meanwhile, is an eco-friendly complement to the ballroom's cutting-edge technology.

But groups don't have to book the ballroom to enjoy the recent upgrades. The hotel now offers a total of 51 different meeting rooms, all stylishly updated and outfitted, for productive gatherings of any size.

Perhaps the property's biggest distinguishing factor among other Newark Airport hotels, however, is its first impression. With a new lobby that celebrates Marriott's Greatroom concept, the hotel invites travelers to sit down, have a bite to eat and relax. Seating options range from communal tables ideal for friendly gatherings, to cozy chairs by the fireplace, to pods where guests can plug in and catch up on the day's work. Ottomans and other movable furnishings ensure visitors have the flexibility to make themselves at home, and an abundance of outlets promises no guest will have to go without his/her electronic device.

Whether in need of a quick snack or full dinner, guests can take advantage of the 5, 10, 20 menu, which delivers food in as many minutes, depending on what he/she orders. This accommodates conference delegates who have only a few minutes between meetings as well as those who want to enjoy a leisurely meal.

The remodeling of the lobby and meeting space comprise the final phase of a hotel-wide renovation. So no matter what perspective travelers consider when exploring hotels near Rutgers University, this one will outshine the rest.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
