The Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel, located in Alberta, Canada, is all set to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation, creating more meeting space and an upscale lounge.
Scheduled for completion in Spring 2015, the 384-room hotel will encompass fresh enhancements to the guest rooms, meeting space, lobby, restaurant/bar and concierge lounge. The renovation will dovetail with the property’s 40th anniversary.
Four rooms will be added, under transformation, as well as 4,000ft² of meeting space when the renovation is complete, offering 7,075ft² of overall meeting space.
Speaking about the renovation hotel’s general manager Joseph Clohessy said: "These ground-breaking enhancements will keep our property at the forefront of the competitive hotel market in Calgary.
"More importantly, these changes will contribute significantly to helping the city be a leading destination for travellers seeking to achieve their personal and professional goals."
The transformation will also include expanded floor space, a reconfigured guest-services area, contemporary décor and new social seating areas. A new Starbucks location in the lobby will include dedicated seating. Also, Canada’s first M Club Lounge, an upscale concierge lounge, will open.
Beyond the physical changes, digital innovations such as mobile check-in and concierge services along with collaborative work and meeting tools will transform the guest experience.
The hotel announced that the transformation will commence in October and will be completed by the spring of 2015.
