Chicago Boutique Hotel Signs Sponsorship With UIC Pavilion

Partnership Draws Support and Exposure to UIC Facility

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Supporting the local spirit and strong traditions of Chicago is an important part of community involvement for the Chicago Marriot at Medical District/UIC hotel, and in nurturing that spirit and enthusiasm the Marriott is proud to announce its continued support of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) through its renewed sponsorship of the UIC Pavilion.

Distinctive among boutique hotels in the Chicago downtown area, the Chicago Marriott at Medical District/UIC recognizes the benefits and intrinsic value UIC and its student population brings to the city. UIC is annually tapped as one of the Top 10 Most Diverse Universities in the United States and with over 30,000 students is Chicago's largest university.

"It's been our pleasure to support UIC in the past and we are proud to be a sponsor again in 2011," said Donald Martin, Director of Revenue Management at the Marriott. "Our institutions have been strong partners for some time now and we are excited to provide the support and exposure that this sponsorship offers the University."

UIC Pavilion is a focal point for not only university athletics as it serves as the home court for UIC men's and women's basketball teams, but draws thousands of guests each year for spectacular concerts and special events. UIC Athletics is in the heart of University Village and less than three miles from downtown Chicago. Located just one block off Interstate 290, UIC is also just minutes from the Rush University Medical District.

Guests taking advantage of Chicago weekend getaway packages or attending UIC events will find the Marriott at Medical District/UIC is conveniently located near the university and offers sophisticated accommodations having recently undergone a $5 million renovation to offer guests the latest in comfort design elements including the Marriott's Signature "Great Room" experience.
