MILLENNIUM BOSTONIAN’S NEW OUTDOOR COURTYARD PROVIDES SCENIC VENUE FOR GALAS AND EVENTS
BOSTON (August 23, 2012) – New outdoor courtyard event space overlooking historic Faneuil Hall makes the Millennium Bostonian Hotel, Boston, a AAA Four Diamond Award property, even more appealing for special receptions, lunches and dinners. Located in the heart of downtown Boston, the new venue provides an ideal option to experience the outdoors throughout fall with its tranquil al fresco setting, sophisticated amenities and generous space for receptions, social events or cocktail receptions.
Launched this summer, the courtyard space is located at the front of the hotel surrounded by four major Boston landmarks including Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, Custom House Tower and Quincy Market. Ideal for lunches, sit-down dinners or cocktail receptions, the courtyard can accommodate 75 to 250 people providing groups and event planners with a new, centrally located, outdoor venue option in downtown Boston.
The Bostonian has already hosted numerous events at the courtyard and has received excellent reviews from meeting planners and attendees. Recent notes hotel sales managers have received from local planners include the following:
"Thank you for all you did to make our Talend Connect event a wonderful experience for our customers, community members and partners. The venue, food and service were outstanding," said Louise Daubresse, senior marketing manager for Talend. "We were thrilled to present with the magnificent view of Faneuil Hall and the Custom House as our backdrop, and offer our guests lunch and reception in the unique open air setting of your courtyard. We received great feedback from attendees. Congratulations on having a venue in Boston that is like no other."
"Thank you for inviting me to your customer appreciation event at the Millennium Bostonian during GBTA. I really enjoyed that you held the event in your outdoor courtyard, where we could take advantage of the New England weather at its finest," said Danie Kouroyen, travel coordinator for Mullen Advertising. "The flow of the event was very smooth with multiple food stations both inside and outside of the restaurant, and having two bars outside eliminated any wait time. There was plenty of space to meet and network. I thoroughly enjoyed your event."
The Hotel is planning a champagne and cake cutting ceremony in the Circle Courtyard on Friday, September 7th to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Bostonian Grand Opening and have invited original hotel associates, managers and the development team to join in the celebration.
The courtyard is available for day and nighttime events; enhancing the Bostonian’s other venue offerings, which include five function rooms and the magnificent Seasons Ballroom. Food and beverage for the events held at the courtyard will be provided by the hotel.
