Courtyard Rome, downtown Rome’s newest hotel boasting 124 rooms and riverfront views, is close to opening.
The exact date remains the proverbial “moving target” as inspections, permits and certificates of occupancy are still in the works. But the opening is close enough that a career fair was held Tuesday and Wednesday at the Rome Civic Center with another likely set for November. Look for 30 jobs to be created by the time the lights go on.
For now, a three-person team is based in Rome — Bob Johnson, general manager; Barbara Reeves, senior sales manager; and Becky A. Ellis, CMP, Director of Sales — and are working out of an office on Fifth Avenue, just down West Third Street from the hotel.
The phone is in service, 706-295-7006, to help with the final steps toward opening, upcoming events and job inquiries. Reservations for now still need to go to marriott.com.
The web page is up as well. Among the amenities now posted by Marriott: “The state-of-the-art lobby at Courtyard Rome provides greater flexibility and choices for our guests. At the center of it all is The Bistro, your destination for a great breakfast, or drinks and dinner during the evening. Take in the relaxing views of the river on our outdoor patio while sitting by the fire pit.”
The Courtyard also features five event rooms — including the Coosa, Oostanaula, Etowah and Romulus — with a total of 5,463 square feet. Website
