AUGUSTA, GA--(Marketwire - Nov 18, 2011) - Celebrate the New Year in style at the Augusta Marriott Convention Center. As one of the premier hotels near Augusta State University, the Marriott is offering a special New Year's Eve package, giving guests everything they need to start 2012 with a bang.

The package, $259 per couple and $180 per single, begins with our New Year's gala. You'll dine on a delicious dinner buffet, featuring Southern favorites such as shrimp cocktail; ribs; slow-cooked leg of lamb; beef tenderloin; Atlantic salmon; and sides such as toasted almond wild rice pilaf, horseradish and chive mashed potatoes. Of course, your sweet tooth will be satisfied with everything from pastries and cakes to petit fours. And, don't miss the decadent chocolate fountain.

Each couple will receive four drink tickets, and a cash bar is also available. Just before midnight, get a burst of energy from the flavored coffee bar, and then toast to the New Year at midnight with champagne. The evening, hosted in our Oglethorpe Ballroom, one of the top wedding venues in GA, features reserved seating, party favors, dancing and live music by Still Cruzin.

The New Year's Eve package also includes accommodations in one of our spacious guest rooms, with Marriott's signature Revive bedding, free wireless Internet, cable TV and a coffeemaker. To start the New Year on the right foot, you'll enjoy a hearty breakfast the next morning at the hotel's Augustino's steak house Augusta, GA.

Looking for something a little more low-key? Enjoy a New Year's Celebration dinner at Augustino's for $49 to $69 per person, which includes a bottle of house wine.
