 The 289-room Philadelphia Marriott West has incorporated Marriott's latest design elements with a multimillion-dollar renovation to the hotel lobby, business center and all meeting rooms. The hotel's 10,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 4,840-square-foot ballroom, has been completely overhauled, with new flooring, doors, lighting, furniture, electrical systems, electronic reader boards, televisions and sound systems. The lobby also received a major makeover and now has flexible seating options, including communal work tables with Internet access, comfortable couches and small dining tables. GoBoard touchscreen devices, which offer local-area information, also are prominently featured.
