The popular business and leisure hotel has begun transforming its meeting experience with the introduction of engaging technology and flexible workspaces that inspire collaboration and creative solutions for delegates.
Due for completion by 30th September 2016, the investment will see changes to the configuration of the meetings and events space, with an additional four meetings rooms being added to the existing two spaces on the lobby level.
The hotel’s biggest meetings and events room, Primrose Hill, will be transformed to include large windows that will maximise natural daylight in the contemporary and stylish design. The space will offer a meeting room capacity of up to 300 people, equipped with innovative technology such as remote-control projectors and screens, as well as an integrated sound and PA system.
The foyer will also boast natural daylight and all the dedicated breakout boardrooms will feature integrated USB, power and HDMI table boxes, Nespresso coffee machines, Barco ClickShare presentation technology and Write-On walls. Business guests will also be able to enjoy a reimagined food and beverage experience in the newly renovated space and complimentary Wi-Fi included in the delegate rates.
The four-star venue is working closely with award-winning interior designer, ICA, to prepare its fresh new space. With an industry-wide reputation for excellence, ICA specialises in hotel design that falls in line with the hotel’s vision for its new meeting space.
The hotel is ideal for leisure or business guests wanting to stay in North London, while being well-placed for all London events and conferences, just a stone’s throw from Central London by underground or taxi.
Speaking about the refurbishment, General Manager, Tony Owen, said: “This is a really exciting development for the hotel and we can’t wait to show our guests the new meetings and events space.
“The meetings and events landscape is changing, with constant adaptations to technology and the increasing importance of wellness in the work place. This investment is part of a wider commitment to provide delegates with the very best experience in a contemporary, inspiring and accommodating setting.”
Meetings and events organisers can explore the new facilities during an official showcase hosted by the hotel on 20 and 21 October.
Marriott International's Meetings Imagined is an industry first that gives event planners the tools and resources to create an engaging and memorable experience for delegates. Following extensive research into meetings and events, Marriott has created seven meeting purposes - Celebrate, Decide, Educate, Ideate, Network, Produce and Promote - designed to offer the hotels greater insight into the objectives of the meeting and provide inspiration and recommendations. To complement these meeting purposes, the introduction of new industry leading digital experiences, including the Meeting Services App, gives delegates full control over their meeting at the touch of a button.
