WALLINGFORD — The Courtyard New Haven Wallingford has put the finishing touches on an $800,000 renovation. The work was done to update the 600 Northrop Road property's public spaces including the lobby, restaurant, fitness center, meeting rooms and patio. The highlight of the renovations is the new state-of-the-art lobby which welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, copper and red. The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. The lobby also features a new eatery known as “The Bistro — Eat. Drink. Connect,” described as a new “dining concept” of casual, flexible seating, easier access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast, as well as light evening fare, including snacks and a full bar.
