Meetings in Times Square Come With Glitz, Glamour and Free iPads

At the New York Marriott Marquis, Groups Get an Irresistible Taste of the Big Apple

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Few places in the world are so iconic that just saying their names evokes instant imagery, but Times Square is one of them. With its legendary sights and cultural relevancy, this Manhattan destination is where everyone wants to be. And helping to make that possible, one group at a time, is the New York Marriott Marquis. With 55 of the most state-of-the-art meeting spaces in Times Square, not to mention a hot new promotion involving free iPads, the hotel is a dream come true for meeting planners eyeing the Big Apple.

Times Square meetings have always enjoyed an aura of glamour, but the New York Marriott Marquis takes it to an entirely new level. Its more than 100,000 square feet of event space is so versatile and functional that every group can create the event it envisions, especially with the help of the hotel's dedicated event staff. Sweeping ballrooms incorporate cutting-edge A/V capabilities and multiple lighting options in order to provide professional results for everything from conferences, to receptions, to concerts, to even fashion shows. Less traditional spaces add drama to gatherings, like the Broadway Lounge, which offers a bird's-eye view of Times Square below. And still other rooms, like the Liberty and Manhattan Ballrooms, include features like natural light or elegant décor to create the perfect ambience. Award-winning catering, meanwhile, can be appreciated in any room with customizable menus and specialty cuisine.

While the event space itself is enough to win over groups both large and small, the hotel's latest promotion involving Marriott's Meeting Services App only sweetens the deal. For qualifying events booked by April 30, 2014, meeting planners will receive a complimentary iPad Mini. Besides being handy for work in general, the iPad is ideal for accessing the new Meeting Services App, which lets planners make real-time requests and changes to their meetings without ever leaving their seats. Planners can use the app to request more coffee, thermostat changes, additional seats and anything else that would make the experience more comfortable.

When delegates aren't in meetings, they'll discover plenty more about this hotel in NYC to love. A newly renovated lobby now offers two restaurants and lounges plus complimentary Wi-Fi for guests' convenience, while the vast, 4,000-square-foot fitness center combines brand-new Life Fitness equipment with breathtaking views of the city. And then, of course, there's the unbeatable location. Even among NYC hotels, this property's position in the heart of Times Square is without equal. Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, Fifth Avenue and much more are all just steps away for an experience that, at last, lives up to the image.
