FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2013) - As the holiday season draws near, now is the time for planning everything from company parties to family gatherings. And where those might have once been festive enough at a restaurant or event venue, the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley has upended previous standards with its sleek, savory and stylish private dining events held at its onsite restaurant, theGREATROOM.

Once upon a time, event planners essentially had to choose between two top priorities, venue or food. But this hotel in Silicon Valley eliminates such either/or decisions. In theGREATROOM, guests encounter an open floor plan that easily accommodates large and small groups alike. Bold colors, clean lines, lofty ceilings and textural finishes gently hem in the restaurant so that groups are simultaneously part of a larger lobby experience and yet cloistered enough to enjoy their private event.

Just as the space is unquestionably cool, the food is enticingly flavorful. Locally-sourced ingredients become tantalizing California cuisine whether as hors d'oeuvres in a function room, small bites in theGREATROOM, plated dinners or stations. Unique among restaurants in Fremont, California, the hotel offers a variety of options, from innovative (and regional) grilled asparagus salad with hazelnuts and mandarin oranges, to traditional favorites like grilled filet with oven-roasted potatoes and California seared sea bass with jasmine rice. Customized menus are also available and are punctuated by specialty cocktails and wines that are hand-picked for each fête.

Of course, those planning bigger events will find plenty of options at this Fremont, California wedding venue. Boasting 15,000 sq. ft. of event space and state-of-the-art lighting and A/V capabilities, the hotel can host weddings in a way no surrounding property can match. Hollywood Regency-inspired furnishings, dramatic color schemes, customized lighting and the latest technological features mean that weddings can be as memorable as the couple themselves.

With so many advantages, the hotel is a natural choice for a variety of private events this season. And since the guestrooms are as appealing as the public spaces, perhaps the best way to plan a party is to start with a Silicon Valley getaway.
