The Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square is offering a new "Pick your Perks" group promotion to groups booking at least 20 room nights and that sign the contract before Dec. 31, 2017.

The Sheraton Pittsburgh offers 399 guest rooms with views of the Pittsburgh skyline and 30,000 square feet of meeting space, making up 26 meeting rooms. Groups that book with the Sheraton Pittsburgh before the end of 2017 are eligible for the "Pick Your Perks" promotion, where the number of perks available correspond with the amount of room nights booked. One perk is offered for booking 20-49 room nights; two perks for booking 50-100 room nights; three perks for booking 101-250 room nights and four perks for booking 251-500-plus room nights.

The perks include a complimentary hour-long cocktail reception with beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres, 10 VIP upgrades, 20 percent attrition, double points for the meeting planner, 10 percent off A/V rental and more.

“Offering first-class meeting facilities and accommodations, and an ideal location just steps from many great restaurants, entertainment venues, shops, and recreational options, the hotel is a terrific choice for groups,” says David Hume, director of sales and marketing. “We are offering the ‘Pick Your Perks’ promotion as an easy way for groups to choose the perks that will best suit their program’s needs.”

Last year was the highest grossing ever for the United States commercial gaming industry.* Meeting planners who hold gatherings at casinos may just feel like they’ve hit the jackpot, too. Casino-based events provide one-stop convenience—the amenities of convention centers and bountiful hotel rooms, plus activities, dining, and nightlife.

When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
