Providence, RI (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Smart Meetings magazine, the industry’s premier resource for meeting professionals, named the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel a winner of its ninth annual Platinum Choice award. This prestigious award recognizes excellence in service and amenities among meeting facilities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Out of thousands of qualified properties and organizations, only a select few receive this award, chosen by the publication’s readers. Winners earn this recognition by setting exemplary standards in a range of categories, including ambiance, amenities, breadth of resources, facility quality, guest services, meeting space, meeting packages, recreational activities, restaurant and dining facilities, staff attitude and technical support.
Part of what made the Renaissance hotel in Providence, RI a contender for this award is the recent addition of technological upgrades. These upgrades make the hotel’s 10,000 square feet of meeting space a fully interactive and cutting edge facility with features like 70" and 80" LED TVs, media and power attachment control consoles in the table centers, power and internet connections at every seat and ceiling mounted speakers.
“We’re excited to receive the Platinum Choice award from Smart Meetings,” said Mike Barrett, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel. “Our recent upgrades in technology place us at the top of our competitive set for meetings in the Providence area.”
