Alexander James reports on a stay at Marriott Heathrow/Windsor Hotel
Marriott Heathrow/Windsor is a hotel with a location suiting international and domestic events. It is only two miles from London Heathrow Airport and within minutes of the M25, M3 and M4 motorways. The historic royal town of Windsor and its glorious castle, only a 5-minute taxi-ride away, offer a great day’s entertainment in an incentive itinerary or for a leisure programme.

With other major attractions such as Twickenham Stadium, Ascot Racecourse, Legoland and West London shopping and theatres all very close, it’s easy to see how the Marriott Heathrow/Windsor has become a favourite for MICE organisers.

The property itself is capable of hosting a range of events boasting large, hi-tech conference suites and 19 meeting rooms (aptly named after British royal residences).

The Buckingham Suite can accommodate up to 400 delegates comfortably in a variety of settings. This versatility allows it to host a traditional conference by day and an elegant dining area by night. The Castle Suite is a collection of rooms that come together to maintain a feeling of togetherness for a large group whilst offering separate working areas. Both suites are supported by innovative break-out spaces that can be supplied with excellent food and drink to revitalise delegates throughout the day.

Each of the meeting rooms will comfortably house groups for long sessions, as they all have natural daylight and top-of-the-range furniture chosen with comfort and sustained productivity in mind. There are numerous ways to engage a group with advanced technology supporting a day of meetings or training in the spaces and there is a courtyard which doubles as an outdoor lunch area for barbecues.

The hotel staff interact with delegates via a Meeting Services App. It’s a great tool which enables groups to communicate with hotel staff throughout the day to make requests and suggest changes to ensure their experience is as productive as possible. The response time is rapid, avoiding delays to urgent requirements.

Marriott has just launched www.marriottmeetingrooms.co.uk which gives organisers real-time availability of meeting facilities and the option to book straight away. This can be great for meetings which have been called at short notice and where an impressive setting is required. For any meetings which need that something extra, www.meetingsimagined.com allows organisers to tailor meeting facilities to enhance the experience to gain maximum benefit from the extensive facilities.

Marriott Heathrow/Windsor has 382 spacious and comfortable bedrooms that boast the quality finishing touch. They all offer brand-new beds, Wi-Fi, individual climate control, tea & coffee facilities, fridge and a safe. The hotel has extensive leisure facilities. They include a large gym equipped with multiple exercise machines, a swimming pool, sauna and steam room. The Central Brasserie serves excellent cuisine with classic favourites throughout the day. The Chats Bar is just the place to unwind with a nightcap in front of a widescreen TV that shows the day’s main sporting events.
