Couples Say "I Do" to Free Honeymoons From the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel

Calgary Wedding Reception Venue Marries Impeccable Events With an Irresistible Offer

CALGARY, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- There are many customs and ceremonials surrounding a wedding that are intended to get the couple off to the right start. Something old, new and blue, for example, makes for a clever template when it comes to bridal attire, but most newlyweds would be a lot better off with the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel's latest wedding promotion. Offering couples what is essentially a free honeymoon, the property goes a lot further toward securing domestic felicity than most other traditions.

As a standout destination among hotels in Calgary, this property offers its guests a winning combination of top service and elegant facilities. And its wedding promotion is simply an extension of its guest-centric reputation. Couples who host their reception at the hotel enjoy substantial bonus points within the Marriott Rewards program. Food-and-beverage costs that total $15,000, for example, translate to 150,000 bonus points. $20,000 receptions earn couples 200,000 points, and those costing $25,000 or more translate to a generous 250,000 points.

Couples can put those points to work for them in a number of ways. They might, for starters, book a week's worth of accommodations at any one of the more than 3,800 Marriott-branded properties around the world. Or they can use the points to reserve a golf or ski package, indulge in spa appointments, experience fine dining or even try out resort activities. The options are as exciting as they are numerous.

Of course, a free honeymoon is just one of the advantages to booking this Calgary wedding-reception venue. The reception itself is another significant attraction. With 9,571 square feet of event space, the hotel welcomes weddings of every size with both sophistication and grace. Couples work with a dedicated event planner to ensure that every detail is accounted for, from the custom menus, to the state-of-the-art A/V equipment. And, unique among luxury Calgary hotels, the property affords wedding parties breathtaking views of the city skyline.

From personalized wedding-planning service, to some of Calgary's most stylish event venues, to the complimentary honeymoon, there are many good reasons to book a reception at this hotel. And they're reasons that are guaranteed to make the newlywed couple happy from the start.

To secure the promotion, couples must book their wedding reception by December 31, 2014 and hold it by December 31, 2015. To learn more about the details, couples can visit www.MarriottCanadaWeddings.com and www.MarriottCanadaMariage.ca.

About the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel
Luxury reveals itself in many ways at the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel. There are, to begin with, the guest rooms which are larger than any other in downtown Calgary and which are outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, spa-inspired bathrooms, LCD HD televisions, Plug-in Panels, high-speed Internet access and plush bedding. Then there is the hotel's location, which puts its guests just steps away from attractions like Calgary Tower and Stephen Avenue. Corporate travellers are catered to with a 24-hour business centre that complements the hotel's 19 modern meeting rooms. And other features, like the four restaurants (including a Starbucks), fitness centre and indoor pool ensure guests' comfort and convenience in the most practical and comprehensive of ways. The greatest luxury, after all, is that of service.
