In addition to guest room revenues, the Marriott will also be able to host conferences and events that in the grand ballroom, junior ballroom or meeting rooms. These revenues will be driven by the function spaces that are provided on the first floor of the Marriott hotel. To further drive revenues, guests will have access to a specialty restaurant, hotel bar/lounge, fitness facility, pool and spa. Program Evaluation The hotel program shows that 61% of the gross hotel area is dedicated to serve guestrooms, while the remaining 39% is set up for public and back-of-house space. The 39% is further divided, with 30% set aside for public space and 9% set aside for back-of- house space. The percentage of space set aside for guestrooms is relatively low for an upscale property, such as this Marriott, and should typically be closer to 70%. Also, there isn’t enough back-of-house space to support the proposed function space. Back-of- house space should be closer to 12 to 15% of the gross hotel area. However, the possible reasons for these proportions will be further discussed. Guestrooms : Each guestroom is approximately 330 SF, a number that is acceptable (but still somewhat low) for an upscale suburban property. There are also oversized rooms and suites that range from 520 SF (oversized room) to 625 SF (parlor/deluxe/hospitality suites) to 1500 SF (presidential suite). All of the suites are 2 bays or larger, with the exception of the oversized room which is only 1.5 bays. The room-to-suite percentage is low, at 4%, for an upscale conference hotel. It should be higher and closer to 8%. The lack of suites
