Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort is offering a free treatment at its Balinese-style spa or free round of golf at its 18-hole, championship golf course for meeting attendees staying at the property.
Groups who book a meeting between August 1 and October 13, 2008, scheduled for 2008 or 2009, qualify. Groups must book a minimum of 20 peak nights for three or more nights.
Recently, the Marco Island, Fla., resort completed a $187-million renovation that added the 10,000-sq.-ft. Palms Ballroom. All told, the resort offers 225,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor and outdoor function space accommodating up to 2,000.
Planners who book a meeting of 300 peak nights or more for a minimum of three nights will automatically win a prize, ranging from a round of golf at St Andrews, Scotland, to watching the ‘Run for the Roses’ from the infield at Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby horse race.
