Meetings Get a Boost at One Downtown Stamford Hotel

At the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, Meetings Are Anything but Mundane Thanks to a New Bonus Offer

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2013) - Selecting a venue for a meeting can sometimes feel like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack. With so many choices available, and so many features to consider, finding the perfect site requires epic amounts of concentration and experience. Except, of course, in Stamford where the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa's latest incentive makes booking the meeting the easiest part of the process.

The Stamford Marriott Meeting Bonus Offer showers meeting planners with options and perks that play off the natural advantages of this premier business hotel. The property already attracts groups with its 25,000 square feet of meeting space, Wi-Fi and teleconferencing and videoconferencing capabilities. But this Stamford, Connecticut hotel upped the ante with its Bonus Offer, which allows organizers to select two bonus items for every meeting planned and held at the property. Options include double Marriott Rewards points (up to 50,000 points), a complimentary afternoon coffee break, two complimentary upgrades to the concierge level, a 50-percent discount on a one meeting room rental rate or a complimentary one-hour cocktail reception in the hotel's Northern Lights Lounge for up to 25 people. Take advantage of this great promotion while it lasts, as it ends on March 27, 2014.

While deciding which upgrades to accept might take some thought, figuring out how to best utilize the hotel's abundant meeting space requires less time. Its Stamford ballroom options range from the 9,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom; to the elegant 5,120-square-foot Pavilion; to the 496-square-foot Skyline Boardroom. And with onsite exhibition space available, as well as tempting event menu options, groups have all their bases covered at this business hotel.

After the presentations and discussions conclude for the day, meeting delegates can grab dinner at Sam's American Bistro, the hotel's casual and tasty restaurant. Or they can continue brainstorming over cocktails and wine at Northern Lights Bar and Lounge, downtown Stamford's best bet for creative small plates, a wine bar and inventive libations. Meetings, it turns out, can be fun after all.
