The 510-room San Jose Marriott in San Jose, CA, will complete a $10.5 million renovation in mid-October, it announced yesterday.

Highlights of the renovation include updates to the lobby, which will feature new "guest registration pods," a library-style alcove, and a large great room area; redesigned guest rooms; updated technology, including in-room routers that allow guests to simultaneously connect up to six mobile devices to the Internet; and new meeting space, including two new "war rooms" for legal groups that require private boardrooms.

"From the moment guests walk through the door, they'll know this isn't your Dad's Marriott," said General Manager John Southwell. "We're upping the hotel's design aesthetic to a new level of streamlined sophistication while enhancing the comfort, convenience, and friendly service for which Marriott is famous. The high-energy sense of arrival will set the tone for an exciting and productive stay."
