|Hamburg Marriott Hotel to Host More Than 160 Athletes for 13th Annual Race
HAMBURG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- The ITU World Triathlon hits eight cities around the world, and on July 12th and 13th, the "world's biggest tri" comes to Hamburg for the 13th annual race. While athletes are busy focusing on training for the course, the Hamburg Marriott Hotel, co-sponsoring the race for the sixth consecutive year, is putting the finishing touches on its race-friendly amenities.
During this year's race, more than 160 athletes will call this hotel home. Conveniently located in the heart of the ABC district near the race course, the hotel offers recently renovated Hamburg accommodations. Each of the 270 guest rooms features a marble bath, 24-hour room service, cable TV, coffee/tea maker, high-speed Internet access and a cozy bed with down comforter and fluffy pillows.
A good night's rest means competitors can use their days effectively to train in the hotel's fitness center. After a workout, a soak in the indoor pool or a quiet moment in the sauna is perfect for recovery, while a true post-race treat can be had at aXzea, the hotel's luxurious spa. Here, visitors can indulge in treatments including massages and oxygen therapy.
This year, the hotel in Hamburg City Center is placing a special focus on its food offerings. Its Speicher 52 is a natural fit for guest athletes. The freshly designed space focuses on New Nordic Cuisine, with exciting interpretations of traditional North German and Scandinavian dishes. In the morning, athletes can fuel up on fresh seasonal fruit, eggs, whole grains, fruit juices and teas on the breakfast buffet, while evenings offer healthy, hearty options including fish and vegetable dishes.
The race will travel around this Hamburg City Center hotel, along Alster, Elbchaussee and Rathausmarkt. After a long day, athletes can gather in the hotel's Pianobar, where an adjoining summer terrace offers the perfect place to celebrate a successful race with friends and family.
In addition to hosting athletes in its accommodations, this Hamburg, Germany hotel is also the setting for the traditional triathlon dinner on July 10th, held in the ballroom, and will be the headquarters for the organization and media offices leading up to and during the event.
