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 November, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced a comprehensive $450 million “Bring Back Tourism, Bring Back Jobs” recovery package to support New York’s hard-hit tourism sector. Part of that package is a $25 million “Meet in New York” grant program that focuses on venues and events that generate and support business-related travel. “This holistic approach to visitation recognizes the spending habits of business and convention travelers for overnight stays, food, and activities,” the governor’s press office noted.

 

After having closed its doors in November 2019 for an extensive renovation, The Pridwin Hotel & Cottages on Shelter Island, New York, is accepting reservations beginning July 15. The 49-room luxury property, which dates to 1927, will be reopening under the ownership of a collaboration between Cape Resorts, a hospitality investment and management company specializing in adaptive reuse and historical preservation of resort properties, and the Petry family, who has owned and operated the resort since 1961.
