Many members from both of the Goleta Rotary clubs recently helped the newly constructed Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Goleta celebrate its official opening.
Courtyard President Robert Olson and Executive Vice President Steve Bridges welcomed the crowd of well wishers and said the Courtyard by Marriott will bring to Goleta nearly $1 million in bed taxes each year, bringing a huge cheer from the audience.
Tours of hotel rooms proved that the Marriott has maintained the highest quality, which was evident by the space and beauty of each room.
The lovely Courtyard was filled with music and catered with an unending array of gourmet food and gracious samples from local wineries. It truly was a night for Goleta to celebrate, and the Rotary clubs of Goleta were there to support this fine hotel.
Three cheers for the Courtyard by Marriott in Goleta!
