Courtyard Los Angeles Sherman Oaks

Sherman Oaks, California
January 1st 2005

Reflecting Marriott’s forward-thinking approach, this hotel design eschews outmoded, formulaic hospitality concepts to appeal to Courtyard’s target clientele: style-conscious Gen X-ers who value ambience and comfort. A departure from the standard Courtyard brand, this hotel features infusions of color, form, texture and visual enticements to provide chic, yet reasonably priced accommodations. Traditionally separate reception, lounge and meeting areas are reworked here to create an open flow from one space to the next. Sophisticated furnishings and materials create comfortable, engaging public spaces both indoors and out.
