TEANECK, N.J., Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Marriott at Glenpointe in Teaneck, N.J. recently was ranked among the top 2 percent out of 358 Marriott hotels nationwide in the brand's year-to-date Event Satisfaction Survey (ESS), achieving an overall score of 87.1 percent. The 350-room hotel and conference center is part of the landmark Glenpointe complex, one of New Jersey's foremost mixed-use developments. Glenpointe was developed and is owned by Alfred Sanzari Enterprises of Hackensack, N.J.
The Marriott at Glenpointe is managed by Merrillville, Ind.-based White Lodging, one of the fastest-growing, fully integrated independent hotel ownership, development and management companies in the country.
The ESS program collects feedback from event planners and meeting organizers who conduct events throughout Marriott's hotel portfolio. Properties are scored in several key categories such as sales, planning, event service, facilities, food and beverage, and overall billing. A high ESS ranking reflects consistency in outstanding customer satisfaction for events held at a Marriott hotel.
"We are thrilled and most grateful for all of our wonderful meeting and event planners who provided us with this recognition," said Keith Shopnick, the Marriott at Glenpointe's general manager. "The Marriott at Glenpointe has a very passionate, creative and dedicated team that consistently anticipates the needs of our guests, and delivers top-notch service. Our team – from the sales and culinary hosts to event operations – is committed to making sure every client and attendee remembers the brilliant experience they had with us. We strive to be the best, and collectively, do whatever it takes to make that happen."
Located at 100 Frank W. Burr Blvd., the Marriott at Glenpointe is just three miles from the George Washington Bridge and 15 minutes from Manhattan. Offering spacious and well-appointed guest rooms, the full-service hotel is ideal for getaways, business meetings and social events. The Marriott at Glenpointe features Pancetta Regional Kitchen & Wine Bar, as well as an on-site sales and events team to plan and execute flawless meetings and events.
A multimillion-dollar renovation recently transformed the Marriott at Glenpointe's lobby, ballrooms, restaurants and 26,500 square feet of meeting space. Key to the lobby renovation was the adaptation of Marriott's "Great Room" concept, which incorporates comfortable seating and plenty of room to work, socialize or relax. A multimillion-dollar refurbishment to the hotel's guest rooms is scheduled to commence later this year. In addition, the hotel soon will introduce the new Marriott "M Club" Lounge for Marriott Gold and Platinum Elite Rewards members to enjoy.
