Meeting Planners Discover a Cutting-Edge Option Among Hotels in Ottawa, Ontario

With Free iPads and New Apps, the Ottawa Marriott Hotel Delivers a Modern Kind of Meeting

OTTAWA, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- Planning a meeting at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel has always been an exciting prospect. Its ample square footage complements the area's abundance of attractions for a destination that just about everyone finds appealing. But times are changing, and meeting planners will find that this conference centre in downtown Ottawa is at the helm of a veritable revolution. Case in point is its latest promotion, which features free iPad Minis with qualified meetings and a state-of-the-art app, all of which speaks to the new way business is done.

As one of the most upscale downtown Ottawa hotel deals around, the iPad Group Promotion offers meeting planners of eligible groups a complimentary iPad Mini when they book a meeting during select value dates. Even those who can't accept the iPad can feel good knowing that the hotel will donate one (chock full of educational games) in that person's name to the Children's National Medical Center.

While busy meeting planners will find plenty of uses for an iPad Mini, the hotel ensures that they can put it to immediate use during their conference within this Ottawa meeting space. That's because meeting planners can access Marriott's new Meeting Services App for their conferences. The app allows planners to work with designated event planners at the hotel to make real-time changes and requests, even if the meeting is underway. So if a planner learns there will be 20 more attendees for an afternoon event, getting more chairs is just a few taps on the iPad away. Should delegates need more coffee or a thermostat change while the conference is in progress, no problem. The meeting planner can simply contact the hotel's staff via the app, make the request and have it resolved, all without ever leaving his/her chair.

Even with all the new technology and service swirling about this modern property, there are still a few old-school features that continue to be relevant today. The hotel's 35,000 square feet of meeting space, for example, offers a variety of flexible options, from traditional ballrooms, to a two-level salon with natural light and beautiful views. Also unique among hotels near downtown Ottawa, this property features 5,000 square feet of revolving event space, Summit, which boasts breathtaking views of the city skyline. Some things, after all, are simply timeless.
