The Largest Marriott Convention Facility in
NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.—September 20, 2012 - After undergoing an extensive $15-million upgrade, the Marriott Gateway on the Falls is redefining the hotel experience.
The 32-storey hotel in the heart of the vibrant Niagara Falls Fallsview district has become more than simply a place to rest your head. Its lobby has been transformed and features the new Marriott Great Room, offering a place to socialize, relax, conduct business, have a light meal or enjoy a drink. The upgraded business centre provides all the amenities for today’s business traveller and an all-new fitness facility is setting new standards for ensuring a healthy diversion for hotel guests.
The Gateway, the first high-rise hotel built in the Fallsview District, is at the “business end of the Falls”, and has truly captured the idea of a home away from home, and an office away from the office.
“We set out to create a trendy setting where people can meet, talk and connect,” says Anna DiCienzo, Vice-President of Sales at the Marriott Gateway. “Today’s business traveller understands that good business is about building relationships, and that doesn’t happen in a secluded office. At the Marriott Gateway, they can get down to work, or take a break in our open concept and social Great Room.”
The Marriott Gateway on the Falls is the largest Marriott convention facility in Canada — and is the closest hotel to the new Scotiabank Niagara Convention Centre — offering all the amenities and services to suit the business traveller’s needs. Featuring 405 first-class hotel rooms, including 260 overlooking the majestic Niagara Falls, it is also within a short distance of the amenities that make Niagara Falls famous: the Falls, two casinos, the Niagara Parks, fantastic food and wine and various other attractions.
On September 14th, The Marriott Gateway on the Falls hosted Meeting Planners from the United States and Canada for its Grand Opening Celebration, where the guests were invited to come and test the many new amenities of the property.
“Our sophisticated, adaptable spaces enable guests to easily meet and work in small groups, take a private time-out or casually dine in more open spaces with easy access to the latest technologies,” says Gord Chow, General Manager. “It’s a whole new way to make the travel experience that much better. During the working day or after hours, we have what is needed to ensure a stay with us is relaxing, comfortable and productive”.
