March 19, 2019 – RENO, Nev. – The Courtyard by Marriott, located in south Reno, is nearing the completion of a comprehensive renovation that will feature all new Courtyard design and functionality, including an all-new and fresh exterior look, technology upgrades throughout the hotel and transformative guestroom upgrades. Construction on the 117-room hotel began in the fall of 2018 and is expected to be completed in April.

“This amazing transformation will allow us to offer our loyal and new customers what is, essentially, the newest Courtyard in the Reno market,” said Jim Darter, President and CEO of Sandpiper Hospitality, the firm that manages the hotel for its owner, Sandpiper Reno LLC. “Every area of the hotel has been enhanced and will absolutely delight our guests, particularly the new rooms. From amazing 55” TVs with streaming capability to the luxurious new showers, the guest experience will be remarkable.”

The renovation will conclude with a beautiful new modern exterior façade that is one of the first like it in the country. The inviting courtyard of the hotel will feature a new spectacular indoor/outdoor fireplace. All the improvements will allow the hotel to provide the best hotel experience for the new world of business so guests can pursue their personal and professional passions.

“Sandpiper Hospitality and our parent companies are very committed to the Reno market and we look forward to growing our business platform here. We think the business climate is progressive and conducive to new investment and expansion,” said Darter. “Our investment in the Courtyard is indicative of our commitment to Reno.”
