As spring arrives, meeting planners are working tirelessly to secure event space for 2016 meetings. The Hyatt Place Washington DC/US Capitol, located in downtown Washington, DC, just north of the US Capitol, is offering meeting planners an opportunity to help their favorite charities while providing top rated service and value to their attendees. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 15 in the Washington, DC area.

Planners contracting new groups at the Hyatt Place Washington DC/US Capitol by June 30, 2016, for stay dates now through Dec 31, 2016 may select their favorite charity to receive a donation of 3% of the room revenue. For groups staying over a Friday and Saturday, 7% will be given to the charity for those days only.

“When we opened our doors less than two years ago, we made a pledge to be a driving force to give back to the community,” said Ryan Cimei, hotel general manager. “We have expanded that pledge to any non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.” Since the hotel opened, the hotel has earned a reputation for being great partners and helping those in need. Hotel associates are active in the local business improvement district to have a voice in upgrading the area, and have donated to charities including Toys for Tots, DC Central Kitchen and Children’s National Medical Center.

Word has spread that the Hyatt Place is the ideal location for small to medium size meetings. This year the hotel was named one of the Top 60 Group hotels in the United States by Hotel Planner. The Hyatt Place brand was named number one in customer service for upscale hotels in 2015 by Toys for Tots. The hotel offers the key amenities those planning smaller meeting seek. For example, complimentary Wi-Fi, business center and printing options, built-in break stations in both meeting rooms that total 1,600 square feet, audio visual services, flexible catering menus and a dedicated meeting specialist are among the amenities focused on meeting attendees. “Our meeting planners love working with our meeting specialists. Having a single point of contact is so crucial to them,” said Cimei, adding, “Our complimentary hot breakfast for all guests is a great way for meeting attendees on business travel to save money.”    

“We feel it’s good to give our meeting planners choices,” said Cimei. “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 submit a meeting request online, the hotel also offers the option of per person meeting packages starting at $105 per day all inclusive, making that much easier to plan your perfect meeting.

To check group space availability, planners may call 202-289-5587 or submit an RFP online.
