Stunning New Exhibit Hall Is Just One More Reason to Book Event Space in Augusta

The Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center Welcomes the Generous Expansion of Its Event Facilities for the Ultimate in Guest Services

AUGUSTA, GA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - If there's one thing travelers appreciate, it's space. After all, when getting from Point A to Point B involves packing oneself into security lines, overcrowded airport lounges and an airplane seat, there's nothing quite like encountering some breathing room at the end of it all. And for guests of the Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center, which recently enjoyed an expansion of its exquisite event space, stretching out has never been easier.

Downtown Augusta hotels may attract business travelers and groups, but none can match the style, convenience and sheer square footage of this property's event space. The Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center is connected to the new Olmstead Exhibit Hall and is its designated operator, making this one of the most cohesive and appealing wedding venues in Georgia. The resulting numbers alone promise endless opportunities for customized events: The Olmstead Exhibit Hall boasts 38,000 sq. ft. of space, plus an additional 17,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space, all of which adds up to 100,000 sq. ft. of room when combined with the hotel's 45,000 sq. ft. of meeting and ballroom space. Not only is the new addition perfect for weddings and special events, the Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center was recently voted as one of only two properties in Georgia as Best of the South in Meetings.

While the new hall is undoubtedly attractive, the hotel's generous amenities and easy access to numerous sights make it a leading property for group events and conferences. The hotel is just five miles from three major golf courses in Augusta, Georgia, for example, while downtown destinations are within walking distance. Guests can also easily access the Augusta Riverwalk, the childhood home of President Woodrow Wilson, the Morris Museum of Art, and plenty more from this property. Whether they're coming for a meeting, a wedding or a holiday, guests will find its many advantages make it one of the best hotel deals in Augusta.

The Olmstead Exhibit Hall has already hosted 20 events during its first six months of operation. With 18 additional events on the books -- and even more in negotiations -- visitors are demonstrating their enthusiastic support for this joint venture between the city and the hotel. It seems that space, when combined with top-notch accommodations and expert service, is truly in demand.
