Marco Polo Changzhou has been awarded “Best MICE Hotel” at The City of Paradise 2016-2017 City Traveler Best Hotel Awards, hosted by City Traveler Magazine, China's leading high-end luxury travel trade and lifestyle publication.
Marco Polo Changzhou won the prestigious award in fierce competition between the premier MICE venues and hotels throughout East China. Jointly organised by City Traveler Magazine, the award is evaluated on the feedback of professional judges and unannounced inspections from MICE experts, as well as votes from readers.
The hotel’s General Manager, Mr. Jorgen Christensen, said the award was a great tribute to the hard work and dedication of his team: “It demonstrates how the legendary Marco Polo brand is able to deliver the best service in so little time, having already won over 10 other awards since we opened two years ago. We are all deeply honoured and look forward to serving our guests and delivering tailor-made experiences and events for meeting planners, MICE companies and multi-national corporations alike.”
Among the attributes that impressed the judges was the abundant choice of nearly 2,000 square metres of indoor meeting and banquet space, consisting of the pillar-less Marco Polo Ballroom and 20 multi-purpose function rooms. All meeting and banquet facilities feature natural sunlight, complemented by the abundant private gardens that are a perfect destination for corporate meetings and incentive trips. Marco Polo Changzhou also boasts optimal leisure and event facilities, including a team-building lawn, The Mansion roof terrace, and a riverside corridor, all of which are preferred venues for stylish outdoor activities.
