LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2013) - From 23 to 26 June, Portugal hosted its biggest business convention ever -- the Rotary International Convention -- and the Lisbon Marriott Hotel was excited to host a large number of attendees both before, during and after the event at its hotel near Lisboa Congress Centre.

The annual convention near this Lisbon airport hotel drew 30,000 participants from around the world for workshops and seminars, and 4,000 of them chose to book their accommodation in Lisbon at this hotel.

Attendees stayed in guest rooms that were built with the business traveller in mind and feature a desk and high-speed Internet access for work and a 32-inch LCD TV, private balcony and luxurious bedding for downtime. Executive suites were also popular, offering an upgraded stay that includes access to the private lounge on the 17th floor, where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast each morning and drinks and snacks in the afternoon.

When guests weren't attending the Rotary International Convention, they were relaxing at the outdoor garden pool and fitness center, or mingling over good food and drinks at the Lobby Bar and Citrus Bar & Restaurant. Those who arrived before or extended their stay after the convention were able to explore the city's top attractions including Lisbon Zoo, St. Jorge Castle, Lisbon Oceanarium, Jeronimos Monastery, Vasco da Gama Aquarium, Queluz National Palace, the Coach Museum and the Old Quarters.
