West Edmonton Resort Makes Positive Impacts Within Its Community

From Hands-On Service to Crucial Fundraising, the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort Is Making Its City a Better Place

ENOCH, AB -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- As a visitor to the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort, it's easy to get swept up in the tourist experience. After all, the four-star service and lavish amenities (think twin ice-skating rinks and a casino) leave little time to contemplate much else. But, fortunately for the community, the resort sees things differently. At once committed to creating a superior guest experience and a vibrant local community, this property works hard to fulfill both roles. And its latest efforts with two worthy causes -- Habitat for Humanity and the Children's Miracle Network -- speak to its high level of dedication.

As one of the biggest West Edmonton hotels around, this resort is used to taking on larger-than-life projects, and its work with Habitat for Humanity abides by this principle. On May 8, 2014, eight members of the hotel's sales team will serve lunch to approximately 30 people helping to build Neufeld Landing. Neufeld Landing is the largest Habitat building in Canadian history with 64 families planning to call it home when it's completed. The lunch service is just one way this property is lending its support to the project.

Families are the beneficiaries of the hotel's other community project, albeit in a different way. On June 25, 2014, this hotel near West Edmonton Mall is hosting its first-annual Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort Children's Miracle Network Golf Tournament. While this may be the resort's inaugural tournament, it's pulling out all the stops. Golfers and guests will arrive at Lewis Estates Golf Course to spend the day hitting the greens, vying for prizes and bidding in the silent auction. With lunch and dinner included, the tourney promises to be memorable for everyone involved, especially its beneficiary. The resort hopes to raise more than $40,000 for Stollery Children's Hospital.

Whether guests arrive at this expansive resort for its amenities (the Edmonton hotel boasts an indoor pool and health club in addition to 11 suites and a Concierge Level), its community spirit or an exciting way to earn or spend Edmonton hotel Rewards points, they are assured of a stay that's as memorable as it is supported by the locals.

About the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort
Rarely do hotels offer such comprehensive hospitality as the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort. Located on a 49-acre estate, the hotel gives its guests room to breathe -- and indulge in a variety of unique amenities like two NHL-sized hockey rinks, a casino with more than 1,000 slot machines, a health club and an indoor pool. Guest rooms follow suit with lavish touches like floor-to-ceiling windows that luxuriate in views of the countryside or downtown. Guests will also encounter sumptuous bedding, LCD televisions and upgraded bathrooms. Depending on their appetites, visitors can grab a table at the action-packed Kitchen Buffet & Bistro where live-action cooking stations serve international dishes, or grab something light at The Lobby Lounge. Business travellers can look forward to dramatic events, thanks to the hotel's 35,000 square feet of meeting space. And if visitors still seek something more, this four-star hotel puts them just minutes away from Edmonton's best museums, shops and restaurants.
