Featuring McCourt Manufacturing.

When you run a small, 32-room boutique property like the Hotel Walloon in Michigan, your event furniture has to last. That’s why GM Marc Jacobs outfitted the hotel’s brand new event center with McCourt Manufacturing’s chairs, tables, and dance floor as soon as he arrived there this past March.

“We took delivery in April, right on time,” he says, of the Gala Resin garden chairs, Commercialite® molded plastic folding tables, ProRent™ Plywood Pedestal tables and the McCourt Commercialite3072GrayOvation™ Portable Indoor/Outdoor Dance floor. Jacobs even ordered additional table holders afterwards to hold and transport the 60-inch tables.

“Having good equipment is vital to our success. The McCourt products seem well made, and guests are comfortable in them. The folding tables look great with linens laid down. And the dance floor lays down really nice. It’s easy to disassemble, pick up, and move; it took us less than an hour,” he says.

The Ovation Dance floor’s precision construction combines beautiful, wood-grain vinyl sections over a plywood core with an easy  Cam-Lock system McCourt Gala Resinfor a luxurious, durable,  and safe indoor/outdoor floor. The padded white Gala chairs, lightweight but heavy-duty, have simple interlocking features for fast setup and breakdown. Plus, they are stain-resistant, weatherproof, and UV-protected.

“The tables are solid too,” says Jacobs. “The plastic is sturdy, and the legs lock for stability. Everything from McCourt was been excellent, from order to delivery. We dealt with territory manager Kylee Bell, who couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful. She gets five gold stars.”  —KK
