We feel it’s good to give our meeting planners choices,” said Swedberg, hotel General Manager. “We also understand that many who plan smaller meetings have responsibilities outside the meeting planning arena so we make the process stress-free.

As the summer heats up, meeting planners are working tirelessly to secure space for events for the fall of this year. Those planning smaller meetings are often treated as less valued clients by hotels, especially those that market themselves to large groups. The newly opened Cambria hotel & suites located at the Rockville Town Center knows that every meeting is important, no matter how small. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 16 in the Washington, DC area.

“When we opened our doors a few months ago, it was like opening a flood gate,” said Don Swedberg, hotel General Manager. “With our downtown location, surrounded by so many company offices and government agencies, meetings planners were looking for a hotel just our size.” Being located at the Rockville Metrorail stop connects the property to Washington, DC. Additionally, the hotel is surrounded by restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options, including a movie theater, to keep meeting attendees busy after the work day is through.

“We feel it’s good to give our meeting planners choices,” said Swedberg. “We also understand that many who plan smaller meetings have responsibilities outside the meeting planning arena so we make the process stress-free.” Not only can planners check space online, the hotel also offers the option of per person meeting packages so budgeting costs is easy. The Cambia hotel & suites in Rockville is currently offering a special meeting package for groups gathering this year. Those planners that book new meetings by September 30, 2015 may pick any three of the following perks:

  •     5,000 Choice Privileges Points for every 10 room nights actualized
  •     Complimentary one-hour welcome reception
  •     Complimentary AM and PM beverage breaks
  •     One complimentary suite per every 25 paid guest rooms
  •     Complimentary LCD projector and screen

The hotel also partners with local venues to help planners find off-site locations for events, giving them a variety of experiences while in town. “We work with companies such as VisArtrs, offering a roof top space for meeting and events. We feel spaces like this perfectly complement our own four meeting rooms, including boardroom.” The hotel also works closely with “Go Ape” a treetop adventure course made up of six 6 zip lines. “Our planners, especially those planning retreats, have responded well to this outdoor option for their attendees. It’s the perfect team building venue,” added Swedberg.
