MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- When a hotel develops a loyal following based on its convenient location, value-added amenities, attentive service and cool, modern aesthetic, some might assume there's no room for improvement. Of course, those people would be wrong, as evidenced by the Courtyard Montreal Airport. While this leader among YUL Airport hotels could've easily rested on its laurels, it chose instead to undergo a comprehensive renovation. The result is a property that defines relevance in the hospitality industry. And, judging by its recent receipt of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence, travellers are liking what they see.
Regular visitors will already be familiar with the property's renovation of its public spaces, which debuted last summer. The lobby was overhauled to embrace Marriott's signature Great Room concept, while the highly regarded YUL Restaurant & Bar enjoyed an aesthetic update to match its revamped, seasonally-inspired menu. Now, however, the changes have stretched to the guest rooms and event spaces to create a hotel that's as beautiful as it is functional.
Event planners looking for meeting rooms near Montreal Airport will be especially gratified by the updates. Seven meeting rooms afford 7,000 square feet of function space ideally suited to conferences, meetings, holiday parties, celebrations and weddings. Board meetings feel more inspired when delegates can retire to an attached living room to brainstorm. And few banquet halls in Montreal can match this property's winning combination of custom menus and contemporary aesthetics. Topping it all off is the new outdoor terrace, which provides a swanky setting for a breath of fresh air.
The guest experience, meanwhile, is just as impressive. Like the meeting rooms, guest room renovations were unveiled in May 2014 to resounding approval. Not only were they restyled in cool charcoals and silvers accented by rich wood, but they boast brand-new foam mattresses in the pull-out couches. Since each guest room includes a pull-out couch, this significant investment will not go unnoticed by families and groups who will benefit from a better night's sleep.
The updates have continued to distinguish this property among hotels near the YUL Airport, as has its recently received Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. Certificates of Excellence are only awarded to the top-performing 10 percent of hospitality businesses worldwide. That means a business has to maintain a rating among TripAdvisor travellers of four or higher (out of a possible five) for at least 12 months.
From awards to aesthetics, service to style, the Courtyard Montreal Airport has demonstrated time and again that striving to improve even upon a good thing can only make it better.
About the Courtyard Montreal Airport
Located just a free shuttle ride away from the Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, the recently renovated Courtyard Montreal Airport is equally close to downtown Montreal. That means travellers arriving for business or pleasure will appreciate its convenience to businesses in Ville Saint-Laurent, as well as the museums, attractions, shopping and dining in the downtown area. The hotel boasts well-appointed guest rooms where visitors will enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet access, flat-screen televisions, mini-refrigerators and expansive desks. After a good night's sleep, guests can explore the hotel's many other features, which include the stylish YUL Restaurant & Bar, as well as a fitness centre with an indoor pool and whirlpool. The 7,000 square feet of revamped meeting space, meanwhile, can graciously host events ranging from board meetings to weddings, all with the flair and attention to detail that make this hotel a distinctive destination.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.

What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
