Inspired by the work styles of Gen X and Gen Y, Marriott Hotels & Resorts is re-imagining” the traditional small meeting to become a collaborative work experience that will promote creativity and innovation. The chain has partnered with Steelcase to create Workspring at Marriott, the industry’s first purpose-built suite of integrated spaces and common areas designed for small meetings that takes a holistic approach, bringing together seamlessly integrated service, technology and contemporary design.
A Steelcase brand, Workspring consists of five studios of varying sizes to accommodate meetings from three to 75 attendees and several common areas, many with natural light and outside access, which is typically not the case for hotel meeting spaces. Everything, from the furniture set-up to the locally sourced health food to sustainably produced office supplies, has been meticulously designed to support small, collaborative meetings and generate better results. In addition, it also offers a simple inclusive pricing structure that includes the meeting space, technology, wireless access, office supplies and food and beverage. The service-centric approach provides customers with a dedicated host, who handles all needs, so the meeting planner and attendees can focus on the work at hand.
