The Marriott International Convention & Resort Network (CRN) announced the addition of several properties to its collection of large-scale meetings facilities, including convention hotels and resorts that fall under the Starwood line such as the Westin, Sheraton and The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts brands.
“We are extremely excited by the opportunities that the addition of these properties presents to our customers,” says Mike Wainwright, vice president of sales, Marriott CRN. “This presence in new markets allows for CRN to dramatically expand on the ability to provide meeting facilities in the most desired destinations."
Marriott said the CRN recently hit 100 properties and expects the collection to continue to grow. The company also revealed an updated website and expanded its online tools for planners, including options for preselected hotel search groupings, so that users can easily navigate the site based on their group's needs.
The largest property in the Marriott CRN is still the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville with nearly 440,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 55,000-square-foot ballroom.
