By Angela S. Wieck

A Courtyard by Marriott hotel under construction on Sanford Medical Center campus in south Fargo is scheduled to open for business Saturday, Nov. 3.

Located at 2249 55th St. S., the 110-room hotel is owned and operated by Brandt Hospitality Group.

According to a press release issued this week, the hotel will feature a new room design "offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology." Guests will have the opportunity to store bags on the "luggage drop" and plug personal devices into the "tech drop" ledge for seamless technology integration. The new design also includes a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.

The newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, offering guests a variety of made-to-order breakfast and dinner items, grab-and-go options and an array of cocktails, beer and wine.

The four-story hotel also features an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool spa, fitness center and guest laundry, and 648-square-feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 50 people.
