Courtyard Marriott Hotel at TechWorks takes shape

FROM WATERLOO CEDAR FALLS COURIER: The new Courtyard by Marriott hotel is taking shape in the former John Deere Waterloo manufacturing building, now the “Tech II” building of the Cedar Valley Tech-Works campus. That building will include several restaurants and a conference center for John Deere’s Waterloo operations. A project of Quad-Cities area developer Rodney Blackwell, it is projected to open in early October. Projected costs are about $43 million, and more than $21 million has been expended to date.

The 180,000-square-foot building will have 166 rooms, including several presidential suites, complete with board rooms, deep standard rooms, multi-bedroom suites and swimming pool on one of the upper floors. The hotel also will have a 4,500-square-foot banquet hall capable of accommodating 250 people or more.

The building’s historic features — its pillars and interior brick work — will be preserved, accentuated and worked into the hotel decor, said Kim DeGood, who will be manager of the facility. Read the full article here.
