London Heathrow Marriott Hotel has been awarded Best Hotel for Events at the prestigious London Venue Awards. Beating strong competition from a variety of respected properties, the 4-star hotel’s events facilities were judged best in London for providing creatively designed, inspiring spaces that use state of the art technology to offer unrivalled versatility.
The popular business and leisure venue recently underwent an impressive transformation, which included 14 fully redesigned, multi-purpose meeting rooms within 1,800sqm of refurbished space.
The new facilities offer an event room capacity of up to 480 people with an additional six meeting rooms, all equipped with innovative technology such as Write on Walls, Barco Clickshare, LED screens and Bluetooth sound bars.
Also recognised was the hotel’s implementation of Marriott International’s Meetings Imagined concept; an industry first that gives event planners the tools and resources to create engaging and memorable experiences for delegates through seven meeting purposes.
The London Venue Awards judging panel said: “This newly refurbished venue offers great flexibility for a variety of events, and has an enthusiastic and creative team.
“For a large hotel, the personality of the team really came through. Coupled with the refurbishments and the Meetings Imagined concept, the hotel deserves a high score.”
Talking about the award win, general manager Ron Vos, said: “We’re thrilled that our new events space has been deemed the best in the capital city. We’ve moved away from the traditional and now look to offer our visitors innovative, modern solutions that play a pivotal role in delivering guest satisfaction.”
Steve Hambrook, conference director at Global Engage, booked the hotel’s facilities for a recent conference, telling CN that “The Marriott Heathrow’s new conference space proved to be a great venue for our recent conference. Having used the hotel for the past four years I found the new space even more practical with additional seating and service areas and a bright, modern, professional feel to it. As usual this is accompanied by excellent service from the conference team. I would definitely recommend it for small and large events and conferences.”
