West Edmonton Hotel Turns Meetings Into Masterpieces

The Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort Offers Irresistible Incentives to Groups

ENOCH, AB--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2013) - Planning a vacation for yourself is one thing. Organizing a trip for your company's kick-off event is quite another. From a hotel's location to meeting-room floor plans, details can make or break group events. Anyone looking at West Edmonton, Canada for an upcoming meeting, however, is in luck. The Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort has simplified the process tremendously by putting together a promotion that no one can refuse.

Offering a range of upgrades and amenities based on the number of nights booked, this West Edmonton hotel rewards groups both large and small. Book 10 to 24 room nights, for example, and you can choose to receive twice as many Marriott Rewards points complimentary. Book 50 to 100 room nights, and you can select three different upgrades, from welcome gifts to a gift certificate for a free one-night stay for two (including breakfast). The more room nights a group books, the more options are available. And with a location in the middle of a 49-acre estate near attractions like West Edmonton Mall, groups have every reason to stay an extra night or two.

The Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort has more to appeal to groups than this promotion alone, however. The hotel's expert staff offers dedicated event-planning services to oversee everything from the customized menu to the number of projectors needed. The hotel boasts 23 meeting rooms spanning 35,000 square feet, which means there's a room and layout for conferences of every size. State-of-the-art A/V equipment and a full-service business centre also ensure each event's productivity and success.

Of course, groups want to be confident that there are dining and entertainment options readily available for downtime. At these West Edmonton accommodations, guests have plenty of options on both counts. For starters, there's a Vegas-style casino on property with more than 1,000 slot machines and 50 table games, as well as two NHL-size hockey rinks. Shopping, museums and attractions are just minutes away from the hotel, although guests don't have to leave to taste some of Edmonton's best restaurant options. The hotel's Sage steakhouse serves up sophisticated fare in a fine-dining atmosphere, for example. And Tap 25 Sports Bar has the best seats in the house (overlooking the ice rinks) for catching the game on one of its 20 flat-screen TVs. Best yet, guests can pair their game-watching with dinner and a beer from the pub's selection of more than 25 varieties.

Groups interested in taking advantage of this and everything else the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort has to offer must book their meetings by September 30, 2013. Interested parties should call 780-930-2622 for additional information.
