QUÉBEC, Oct. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - On September 12th, in the presence of
nearly 200 guests, the Urgo Hotels Group inaugurated its latest
concept; The Marriott Québec City Centre, on Place d'Youville. The
hotel, which had previously been ranked Number 1 in customer
satisfaction among 900 facilities in the Marriott Courtyard chain, has
left this service category and joined The Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
Renowned for its long standing tradition of exceptional customer
service, management wanted to offer their guests even more. The
Marriott Québec City Centre has evolved in order to surpass its own
quality standards. "The change from Marriott Courtyard to Marriott
Québec City Centre comes with higher quality services, reflecting our
company's vision," said Jacques Lapierre, General Manager.
After two years of renovations and an investment of more than $3
million, The Marriott Québec City Centre has made significant changes.
These changes resulted in a superior standard of accommodations, the
familiarity of a boutique hotel and a renewed dining experience, among
other things. The new lobby provides a refreshingly comfortable
atmosphere that reflects the needs of today's discerning traveller. It
combines spaces for work, relaxation and entertainment. Establishing a
variety of areas in the lobby exemplifies the "great room," a
cutting-edge concept within the hospitality industry. "Today's new
travellers no longer want to stay in their rooms in order to work and
be productive. By taking advantage of the various areas in the lobby
and our enhanced restaurant services, they be able to meet diverse
needs effortlessly," explained Mr. Lapierre.
The 111 renovated rooms and suites offer a contemporary environment,
perfect for today's traveller. This is combined with a quality of
service and comfort that only a great international hotel chain can
provide. Suitable for all kind of events, The Marriott Québec City
Centre harmoniously combines travel and productivity with its three
fully renovated meeting rooms that offer 138 m2 (1,485 sq. ft.) of space. Even the gym has been expanded and revamped,
with a wider selection of fitness and training equipment.
The Que Sera Sera Resto-Bar, now open at lunchtime, has been completely
transformed. It offers a new bistro-style environment, and its 5-10-20
menu concept, designed around customer availability is highly
anticipated. Furthermore, the menu will include a table d'hôte that
follows the seasons and features fresh products as they become
available, all in a more casual atmosphere.
The Marriott Québec City Centre seamlessly combines the warm,
personalized welcome of a boutique hotel with the quality one would
expect of an internationally renowned hotel chain. Urgo Hotels is a
private hotel group with over 30 properties in Canada, the United
States and the Caribbean. The Group's Canadian operations are in the
key markets of Québec City, Montreal, Mont-Tremblant and the Maritimes.
