VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- For couples planning their wedding in the coming year, the issues vying for consideration can feel overwhelming. Between the menu, the guest list, the flowers and a lengthy to-do list, planning (not to mention paying for) a honeymoon can seem about as feasible as uninviting your prospective in-laws. But at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel, couples receive the best gift of all when they book their reception: Marriott Rewards points that can be applied towards the honeymoon of their dreams.
Premier among Vancouver, BC waterfront hotels, this property has a reputation for luxury and superior service. (Just look at its CAA/AAA Four Diamond status.) And its latest promotion continues that legacy.
Couples who take advantage of this great deal will enjoy bonus Marriott Rewards points that are awarded based on the food-and-beverage costs of their receptions. Those who spend $15,000, for example, will earn 150,000 points. Others who spend $20,000 will earn 200,000 points, and those who spend $25,000 or more will receive 250,000 points.
The ways couples can spend their points are as diverse as the receptions they host. For starters, newlyweds can book accommodations at one of the more than 3,800 Marriott-branded hotels around the world, including (of course) this downtown Vancouver waterfront hotel. They can also apply them to perks like spa services, resort activities or golf or ski packages, as well as fine dining.
A free honeymoon isn't the only advantage to booking a reception at this wedding venue in downtown Vancouver. The spaces range from traditional rooms where floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light, to outdoor patios that feel original and fresh, to sweeping ballrooms that can accommodate up to 600 people at a time. Tempting catering options and a professional staff experienced with ceremonies of all sizes and cultural backgrounds, including Indian weddings, make for a seamless, inspired event.
Couples and their guests can continue to enjoy the property even after the wedding is over. Boasting an award-winning restaurant and close proximity to the city's best shopping and attractions, the hotel encourages visitors to extend their vacation. And with some of Vancouver's most luxurious hotel suites, which come with all the benefits of the Concierge Level, this is one property where travellers feel indulged and where newlyweds are properly celebrated.
To secure the promotion, couples must book their wedding reception by December 31, 2014 and hold it by December 31, 2015. To learn more about the details, couples may visit www.MarriottCanadaWeddings.com and www.MarriottCanadaMariage.ca.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
