Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Planning events and meetings in Calgary has never been more rewarding with extra incentives from the Courtyard Calgary Airport.
The Calgary airport hotel is one of many Marriott properties that is participating in the brand’s Rewarding Events program. Planners can book conventions, conferences, board meetings or retreats through the end of 2013 and earn up to 50,000 Marriott Rewards points that can then be used for free vacations worldwide – including golf, spa and tropical retreats.
Points are earned through catered event bookings or room blocks and then can be redeemed for spa services, brand-name merchandise, frequent flyer miles or credits toward a future event. Booking just one event results in Silver Elite status.
As one of the premier hotels near the Calgary airport, the Courtyard offers 7,700 square feet of flexible meeting space. The largest room, the Stampede Ballroom, features 2,920 square feet that can host up to 300 people. The Stetson Ballroom can be configured to house up to 150 meeting attendees. All nine Calgary meeting rooms feature high-speed Internet access and state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment.
Attendees can take advantage of the hotel’s full-service business center with printers, copiers and fax capabilities. And a separate entrance to our Conference Centre facilitates easy arrivals and exits.
Meetings in Calgary would not be complete without experienced planning and creative catering teams ready to assist groups with any tasks. The hotel’s professional catering staff can serve anything from a simple coffee or snack break to an elaborate themed dinner with advance notice.
After a long day of strategic planning, business professionals will be able to relax in one of 151 rooms or 20 suites designed with luxury in mind. Rooms feature one king or two queen beds topped with cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows to ensure guest get a sound night’s sleep. Pullout sofas also offer accommodations for extra colleagues along for the meeting. Travellers will also enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet, spacious desks with ergonomic chairs, flat-screen TVs, two phones with voicemail capability, in-room coffeemakers and mini-refrigerators.
Conveniences and luxuries extend beyond the meeting and guest rooms at the Calgary airport hotel. A complimentary shuttle transports guests to and from Calgary International Airport, just 12 kilometers away. And the onsite restaurant, The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect., has helped raise the standard for dining with menus featuring seasonal fruits, burgers, pizzas, salads and sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients. The casual, café-style restaurant sports a large communal table, where small groups of business travellers can gather for a hearty breakfast or dinner, and comfortable bar seating so guests can sip on freshly brewed Starbucks drinks, a number of craft, domestic and imported beers and custom-ordered cocktails concocted by a friendly bartender.
