Courtyard Santa Barbara Goleta, Goleta, CA

About the project:

Built by R.D. Olson Construction in just less than one year, this two-story, Mediterranean style hotel represents the first Marriott property built in the Goleta market. The 106-room, 68,000 square foot hotel features a room mix that includes nine suites. The primary hotel restaurant, The Bistro, was smartly designed to afford guests a choice in food and service style, from grab-n-go to quick service dining.

In keeping with the amenities and functionality of the brand, the lobby fuses high tech with high style. The design generates a warm reception for guests by featuring welcome pedestals instead of the traditional front desk. An innovative and interactive GoBoardâ„¢ displays news, weather, traffic, local restaurants and documents, while semi-enclosed media pods feature individually controlled flat-panel televisions that offer a place to work, meet or relax.

The lobby extends to an outdoor patio with a welcoming fire pit that lends itself to social gatherings and conversation. The hotel also features such resort-style amenities as a fitness room, large outdoor pool, event lawn and spa.
