With its spacious grounds, breathtaking landscape and scenery and warm hospitality, Putrajaya Marriott Hotel has become a favourite choice for businessmen.
Located near Putrajaya and Cyberjaya, the hotel enjoys more than 50 per cent occupancy with their busiest days being on weekdays.
"Unlike most city hotels, we are busiest on weekdays. Weekends are rather slow for us but with the special weekend package, it looks like weekends are going to be busy too," says its assistant public relations manager Lydia Mae Hendroff.
The weekend package at RM238++ for two and inclusive of breakfast, is on till Dec 31, 2008.
"We are hoping more people will stay with us on weekends and school holidays. On weekdays, we get the meetings, incentives, corporate and exhibition crowd who are here till Fridays and then, on Saturdays and Sundays, we look forward to having the leisure travellers."
The five-star hotel has undergone renovations in stages with the management spending some RM15m on a new ballroom that will be an extension to the existing one.
"Our biggest selling point is the spacious, two-acre lobby and the golf course. We are surrounded by greenery and guests like that," she says.
