Modern design and hospitality in Winston-Salem

The 126-room Courtyard by Marriott Winston-Salem Downtown welcomes guests into a modern, inviting space. This property features the brand’s new open lobby design, complemented by rich colours stemming from the neighbouring brewery’s artwork.

In addition, retro-style patterns and strategically placed decorative lighting add unique accents that highlight the sleek black lacquer furniture and complete the vibe where New Age meets vintage style.

“The Courtyard in Downtown Winston-Salem brings a whole new experience to both visitors and residents, as it highlights the city’s vibrant culture,” said general manager Arnika Addison. “Kelsey [the hotel’s director of sales] and I are thrilled to have already built great relationships in the community, and we look forward to providing a one-of-a-kind experience for guests.”

Apart from its elegant rooms and stylish lobby, the hotel also offers a rooftop bar with a view of the West End and the historic Winston-Salem skyline, as well as a bistro ideally suited for casual dining and after-work drinks.

“We are seeing immense growth in Winston-Salem, which is creating a new business hub and attracting the next generation of workers,” Virtua Partners co-founder and principal Quinn Palomino explained. “Whether someone is stopping at our hotel to see family or on a business trip, we can ensure there is plenty to do in town and that Hotel Equities will provide top-of-the-line service during their stay.”
