IRVINE, CA-R.D. Olson Development has broken ground on its latest hotel project: the 210-room Courtyard by Marriott Irvine Spectrum here. Construction is planned for completion in July 2014, and R.D. Olson will retain ownership of the $50-million hotel upon completion, with Marriott International providing management services.

The new hotel represents the Southern California debut of Marriott’s latest Gen Next design and features an interior-design theme that pays tribute to the history of Irvine Ranch. The design features a reinvented lobby centered on the concept of refreshing business, fusing high style with greater functionality. Welcome pedestals replace a traditional front desk to create a more inviting reception for guests. An interactive GoBoard displays news, weather, traffic, local restaurants and other items of interest for guests, while semi-enclosed media pods feature individually controlled flat-panel TVs and offer a place to work, meet or relax.
