Ribbon cutting at new Courtyard Wayne Fairfield
Christopher P. Vergano, Mayor of Wayne Township, and Judy Ross, Vice President of the Meadowlands Regional Chamber, joined 263 Hotel Group, LLC and Riverlink Hotels, owners and developers, to mark the official opening of the new hotel.
The property, adjacent to Wayne Plaza, has been the focus of various development plans for nearly a decade. At the ribbon cutting event, Christopher P. Vergano, Mayor of Wayne Township, recognized the Courtyard Marriott development team for their efforts and accomplishments.
“Today’s celebration is the result of vision and hard work on the part of this team,” said Mayor Vergano. “On behalf of Wayne Township, thank you for the time and investment you made to create this successful development and exceptional hotel.”
Located at 263 Route 46, the hotel is a Marriott franchise, managed by Prestige Hospitality Group of Albany, New York. The three-story hotel, which first opened its door to guests on June 14th, features an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor fire pit, fitness center and guest laundry. The hotel offers over 1,587 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 100 people.
“The hotel is situated in an excellent location to capture the growing tourism and business hospitality opportunities in the Meadowlands region,” said Judy Ross. “We expect the Courtyard Marriott to be highly successful.”
The Courtyard Wayne Fairfield features the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. The newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. The Bistro offers guests a wide variety of “made to order” breakfast and dinner items, “grab and go” options, and also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to unwind at the end of the day.
William Gomez, Chief Operating Officer of Prestige Hospitality Group served as the master of ceremony for the event and introduced the new hotel management staff. Maged Mosaad leads the hotel as General Manager and Stephanie Spano is the Director of Sales.
At the event, Mr. Gomez read a Citation from the New Jersey Legislature, delivered from Assemblyman Kevin J. Rooney, congratulating the Courtyard Marriott Wayne Fairfield on the successful opening of the hotel.
Featuring an innovative lobby space as well as Courtyard’s latest contemporary room design, the new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard Wayne Fairfield offers guests convenient access to the Willowbrook Mall, Montclair State University, and the New York metropolitan area.
The new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “Luggage Drop” and plug personal devices into the “Tech Drop” ledge for seamless technology integration.
Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.
An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A “Shower Nook” housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.
Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched the brand 30 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal are conveniently located by side exits.
