Courtyard by Marriott
A new five-story Courtyard by Marriott hotel is rising across the street from the Morgantown Black Bears baseball stadium in Granville, WV. The site, at the far end of the University Town Center drive, is unique as it is positioned above the river with a view toward WVU’s iconic Coliseum and the City of Morgantown. Mills Group is leading the design-build team of owner, West Place, LLC, and general contractor, Waller Corporation.
Planning began the summer of 2014. Mills Group was integral in the site planning and assisted the owner in their vision of the hotel and the adjacent site. The Marriott will be perched at the top of a hill, the eastern side of the site, paralleling the Monongahela River located 360 feet below. Marriott will offer many amenities to their guests. The hotel has an indoor pool, a generous public space including a bar, a bistro, a business center, and a theater. The guestroom configuration favors a two queen bed mix providing families and business travelers a variety of overnight stay options. This Courtyard’s interior design will play off of local culture and incorporate WVU themed images throughout. This will be one of the first hotels to offer guests a new vision of the Marriott brand. The distinctive location will offer private outdoor spaces for guests to participate in the fine weather and view. This will be enjoyed beside a fire-pit fire crackling in the background.
