HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - Mar 6, 2014) - Anyone who has attended an event at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel will not be surprised to learn that the property has been named by Meetings + Incentive Travel magazine as the leading hotel in Eastern Canada for exceeding meeting planners' expectations. From large conferences, to intimate meetings, this property can accommodate it all with style and service.
Meetings + Incentive Travel lends an expert voice to the dialogue among Canadian meeting and incentive travel planners. Having been published for 42 years, the magazine is known for its Annual Readers' Choice Awards, which has previously appeared in its Annual Market Report. This year, however, those awards are printed in its February/March issue, thereby ensuring that no one misses the lineup of Canada's best meeting destinations.
Another change to the awards' format allowed readers to choose their favourite properties according to region: Western, Central and Eastern Canada. The magazine framed its questions in an open-ended way, asking Canadian MICE planners which venue exceeded their expectations. For those voting among Eastern Canadian properties, the choice was clear. This hotel near the Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre has both the space and the service to ensure a spectacular event experience.
Offering eight meeting rooms and up to 18 breakout rooms, the hotel boasts an impressive 22,000 square feet of total meeting space, allowing groups of up to 1,000 people to be accommodated as easily as those with just 15 attendees. Inspired event menus and modern A/V equipment ensure meetings are productive and pleasurable, while the experienced staff knows how to create a seamless journey between meals, presentations and breaks. Additionally, the Halifax hotel is located near the Metro Centre for easy access to sports, entertainment, and events.
Seasoned meeting planners know that guest rooms are as important as meeting rooms, and in that area, this property once again outshines other Halifax luxury hotels. Guest rooms and suites offer a variety of different options, from rainforest showerheads, to granite countertops in the bathrooms, to ergonomic chairs, high-speed Internet access and flat-screen televisions. And when it's time to eat, the hotel offers its own signature restaurant, harbourstone sea grill & pour house, as well as a location within walking distance of some of the best Halifax restaurants around.
Providing groups with the convenience, luxury and service they desire, the hotel will no doubt remain a favourite among meeting planners for many years to come.
