CHANDIGARH, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Business, as it turns out, doesn't have to be boring. When a meeting is held in an exotic location and within elegant rooms where the ceilings soar almost as high as a group's collective imagination, or a chef is on-hand to fuel the great minds gathered at the table, well, work can become downright exciting. And this is precisely the thinking behind the new business package available at the JW Marriott Hotel Chandigarh.
As one of the most state-of-the-art business hotels in Chandigarh, India, this property would attract meeting planners even without promotional packages. A vast 16,500 square feet of meeting space unfolds indoors and out in the most creative of ways. In The Living Room, for example, an open kitchen -- replete with a chef ready to whip up a snack of one's choice -- open foyer and lounging area provide space where guests can relax, take breaks and refuel. (The kitchen is generously stocked with beverages, health bars, bite-size pastries, sandwiches and fresh fruit.) Productivity is further enhanced by the meeting rooms' tech-savvy features like a large, drop-down screen with lift projector; a surround-sound A/V system; and wiring for both cable and wireless Internet.
For those who prefer more traditional meeting spaces, the hotel outshines other conference halls in Chandigarh once again. Its Grand Ballroom features soaring ceilings at six meters, a dimension matched by the vast square footage. (It spans more than 6,000 square feet to accommodate up to 900 people.) Once again, cutting-edge technology that includes A/V equipment; wireless, high-speed Internet access; and multimedia conferencing facilities is available to ensure the success of every event.
No matter which room a group selects, everyone can be assured of a seamless experience, thanks to the on-site event planners who provide 24-hour service.
Enhancing these already appealing spaces is the hotel's latest business package, which includes an extensive menu, a 20-percent discount on A/V requirements, conference stationery, floral arrangements and deals on beverage packages. Rates are based on group size according to the following format:
- INR 1400++ for 30 to 50 guests
- INR 1300++ for 51 to 100 guests
- INR 1200++ for 100+ guests
In addition to offering top-notch business facilities, the hotel is near all the best places to visit in Chandigarh, so guests can look forward to squeezing in some sightseeing during downtime. As one of the few five-star hotels near the Panchkula Golf Club, for example, the property also puts visitors close by to the Zakir Rose Garden and Sukhna Lake Chandigarh.
At the JW Marriott Hotel Chandigarh, business has officially become fun.
