Form and Function Effortlessly Unite at the Newly Renovated Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel

CALGARY, AB -- (Marketwired) -- May 06, 2015 -- Design finds inspiration in many places, from the catwalks to nature. But when the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel began to contemplate an update to its guest rooms, it sought creative input from the one source that mattered most: its guests. And as the beautifully revamped accommodations in Calgary illustrate, the customer is always right.

Visitors to the hotel will enjoy the best of an established downtown location and brand-new accommodations, which were unveiled this spring. All guest rooms were gutted and remodeled to incorporate multifunctional spaces for work and relaxation, multiple plug-in points for enhanced connectivity (Marriott Rewards members enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel) and, of course, a sleek new aesthetic.

In a nod to its environmental context, the luxury Calgary hotel features a dramatic mural reminiscent of Alberta as a focal point in each guest room. Crisp whites, sophisticated chocolates and soothing dove grey swirl together for a contemporary backdrop to the flat-screen televisions, flexible work/dine areas and plush bedding. Bathrooms, meanwhile, have traded in old-fashioned tubs for sleek glass-walled stand-up showers, upscale THANN bath amenities and chic sliding barn doors.

The remodeled guest rooms complement the hotel's ongoing evolution, which has transformed the property into one of the most attractive and innovative destinations among downtown Calgary hotels. The multimillion-dollar renovation has introduced a swanky new whiskey bar; updated the fitness centre; expanded the state-of-the-art meeting space to encompass more than 11,000 square feet (opening July 2015) and reconfigured the lobby so that guests can check in, socialize, work and relax with ease.

And further distinguishing the property from other Calgary hotels near Eau Claire is its exclusive M Club Lounge -- Canada's first -- which offers a sophisticated place to work or relax with business services, stylish seating and savoury bites and drinks all on-hand.

Between the beautifully opulent accommodations, versatile amenities and ongoing excellence in service, the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel has paid its guests the ultimate compliment by listening to their expectations... and surpassing them.
