Renovated Downtown Manhattan Event Venue Fuels Inspiration With Free iPads

At the New York Marriott Downtown, Meetings Are Both Stylish and Tech-Savvy

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- The New York Marriott Downtown, whose meeting rooms welcome thousands of guests to downtown Manhattan each year, has completed a renovation of its expansive 13,809 square foot meeting space. To add to the visual appeal of its beautiful new function space, the hotel has added a touch of tech savvy, by offering an iPad promotion that highlights Marriott's unparalleled new Meeting Services App.

Designed to provide seamless service, the Meeting Services App allows meeting planners to make real-time requests to a dedicated event coordinator at the hotel and have the requests handled immediately, all from the touchscreen of a smartphone or tablet. Whether a meeting planner needs a thermostat change or more space, this app ensures flawless events at one of the most service-oriented corporate event venues in NYC.

Just to make sure meeting planners make the most of the new app, the New York Marriott Downtown is offering them a complimentary iPad Mini, when they book 75 or more cumulative rooms during select value dates. For those who are unable to accept the iPad, Marriott will donate one to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, improving the lives of children since 1983, in the meeting planner's name.

Boasting 14 meeting rooms, equipped teleconferencing and videoconferencing capabilities, plus an in-house A/V department and a staff of event planners, the hotel is easily one of the most accommodating among downtown Manhattan event venues. And now it's also one of the most attractive. The extensive renovations feature new carpeting and wall treatments, new projection screens and up-lighting in the Grand Ballroom, and new seating and décor in the Financial Ballroom's pre-function space. Overall, the impression to the group is both modern and welcoming.

The new modern décor lends itself well to both buttoned-down corporate meetings, as well as weddings and other social events.
