The sixth Best Western Atrea hotel, an upper-midscale prototype designed to attract business travelers, has opened its doors in Woodway, Texas.
The 82-room Best Western Atrea Colonnade Parkway, located near Providence Hospital and Woodway’s Industrial Park, features three conference rooms with more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space, an indoor pool and spa, a business center, a state-of-the-art fitness center and an on-site cocktail lounge. Guests receive free wireless high-speed Internet access and a complimentary hot breakfast.
“The new Best Western Atrea Colonnade Parkway sets a new standard for guests in the Woodway/Waco area,” says Mark Williams, vice president, North American development for Best Western International. “With its features designed to make travelers more comfortable and productive on the road, this upper-midscale hotel is a great lodging choice for guests traveling for business.”
The hotel offers guests easy access to a variety of attractions including Baylor University, Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, Dr. Pepper Museum and the Cameron Park Zoo. Recreational activities such as fishing and boating are available at nearby Waco Lake. A variety of dining and shopping options are also close by.
Best Western’s Atrea prototype was first announced at the brand’s annual convention in October 2007, and hotel developers have since committed to build an additional 28 Atrea properties in the United States and Canada. Best Western expects additional Atrea properties to open this year. They will open in Conyers, Georgia; North Bergen, New Jersey; New Bern, North Carolina; Calgary; and Sherwood Park, Alberta.
Best Western’s Atrea prototype has several features designed to make business travelers more productive, including multi-function community spaces for meetings or social gatherings, which are often missing from upper-midscale hotels, and multimedia features in guest rooms.
