CORALVILLE, Iowa, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Exuding passionate service to both travelers and the Iowa City community, Coralville Marriott Hotel & Conference Center has been recognized for its unwavering dedication throughout the year.
On November 6 at the 2016 Stars of the Industry Awards Program, Iowa Lodging Association bestowed two awards to the Coralville hotel: Hotel of the Year and Community Service Award of the Year. Along with these pair of impressive accolades, Marriott employees Tashea Delaney and Wenjin Richardson received nominations in the Front of the House and Heart of the House categories.
General Manager Bryan Stolz, who took home Hotelier of the Year at the 2015 ceremony, expressed elation for Marriott's wins and nominations.
"Our dynamic team is the reason we received these recognitions," said Stolz. "Becoming the future of travel has always been our mission, and the intuitive service displayed by all of our workers – especially Tashea and Wenjin – gives guests the brilliant travel experience they want and rightfully deserve."
In regards to its community service award, Coralville Marriott Hotel & Conference Center has helped Johnson County by getting involved in multiple charitable projects, including Habitat for Humanity, Children's Miracle Network and Coralville Food Pantry, among others. The Coralville hotel has also supported prominent local events such as Fryfest, Ragbrai, Winterfest and Brrrfest, proving the honor was well-deserved.
When travelers stay at the award-winning hotel, they will have convenient access to the area's top attractions. Located inside Coral Ridge Mall, The Iowa Children's Museum offers educational yet fun interactive exhibits for little ones to expand their growing minds. Visitors need to drive only five minutes to cheer on the Hawkeyes or tour around the beautiful campus of University of Iowa. Golf enthusiasts looking to enjoy a round of 18 holes can perfect their swing and shoot under par at Brown Deer Golf Club, which is just a mile away.
Following an adventure-filled day, guests will love retreating to relaxation in our stylish accommodations. Travelers seeking more comfort and luxury can upgrade to concierge-level rooms or suites, giving them exclusive access to a chic lounge with modern furnishings, as well as complimentary food, beverages and business services.
For a full meal, travelers can satisfy their hunger at Edgewater Grille, the hotel's on-site restaurant serving savory American cuisine such as cowboy-cut ribeye and seared herbed sea bass. Afterwards, guests can unwind and socialize with others over signature cocktails at River Bar.
