SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Together, everyone achieves more. That's the philosophy the San Diego Marriott Del Mar has always fostered when hosting conferences, board meetings, conventions and retreats in its 12,078 square feet of event space.
But in 2014, the Marriott hotel wants to take San Diego Del Mar meetings to the next level with a new promotion that puts an "I" in team – at least from a technology standpoint.
Meeting planners who book 75 cumulative rooms at the Del Mar hotel over select value dates before April 30, 2014, will receive a complimentary iPad mini loaded with the new Marriott Meeting Services app. When utilized in tandem, the tools will allow planners, CEOs and/or company owners to control every aspect of their meetings from the palm of their hands while keeping event information organized in one secure place.
"The new Marriott app is the future of meeting services and keeps organizations connected to our professional planners 24/7 from at least three days before their event until the final attendee departs," said Brian Findley general manager of the Del Mar hotel. "Whether you need coffee refills, room temperature changes or more seating, the real-time app puts meeting management at your fingertips. Our concierges will work promptly to exceed your expectations on the request."
The iPad offer adds extra value to the Del Mar hotel's deluxe accommodations while emphasizing the importance of technology in today's event spaces. The San Diego Marriott Del Mar boasts 14 Del Mar meeting rooms with high-speed Internet access and quality audio and visual equipment and offers access to a full-service business center equipped with computers, a copy machine, fax and overnight delivery and pickup services. The largest of the Del Mar meeting rooms, the Grand Ballroom, features 7,290 square feet that can accommodate up to 1,040 guests for receptions and 500 for banquets. Professional event managers are prepared to assist with some of the heavy lifting when it comes to planning menus with everything from simple coffee and snack breaks to elaborate themed galas with advance notice.
Conference-goers also can partake in breakfast, lunch or dinner at Arterra, the onsite Del Mar restaurant serving American cuisine. The eatery's award-winning food and wine program has been recognized by epicureans and critics as one of the premier dining destinations in San Diego. The sushi bar at Arterra, open for dinner, offers a wide variety of dishes including shrimp tempura, sashimi, shiitake mushrooms and specialty rolls.
The Del Mar, CA, hotel offers an online guide for businesses to start their event planning early by calculating costs and setting up floor plans for maximum comfort and efficiency.
After long strategic planning sessions, business professionals can retreat to one of the 281 comfortable guest rooms and three luxury suites at one of the premier Del Mar, CA, hotels. Tech-friendly rooms boast 32-inch flat-screen TVs with premium movie channels and iHome docking stations to keep professionals entertained when they aren't working. High-speed Internet access allows business travelers to stay well-connected to work, while spacious work desks with ergonomic chairs provide all of the comforts of home. Irons and ironing boards, coffeemakers and two phones with voicemail capabilities are among other amenities guests will appreciate in their well-appointed rooms. When it comes to retiring for the night, the Del Mar hotel's thick pillow-top beds with down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of down and feather pillows will lull guests into a sound night's sleep.
