STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - Sometimes it pays to do the unexpected. Underdogs win races, first-time lottery players win jackpots and groups that book meetings during the holiday season win unheard-of rates. Proof of the last of these is in the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa's Hot Winter Meetings offer, which celebrates the holiday season's tradition of giving and receiving by extending the gift of major savings to groups.

Available for conferences held between December 18, 2013 and January 8, 2014, the Hot Winter Meetings offer features a $99 group rate with a minimum of 25 room nights booked. Guests can experience all the amenities of this 508-room business hotel in Stamford, Connecticut during this time, including three concierge levels, a new lobby and 22 meeting rooms. Plus the hotel's location near Greenwich, Connecticut, New York City and a variety of local attractions mean guests can explore picturesque cities and towns during the most spirited time of year.

In addition to discounted room rates, the Hot Winter Meetings offer includes double Marriott Meeting Planner points for the event's organizer, as well as complimentary overnight self-parking for attendees. Not only does the parking pass let guests save $15 a day, it also secures easy access to the downtown hotel's bustling neighborhood. Stamford Town Center Mall is across the street, major corporations are within walking distance and the Chelsea Piers sports complex is just minutes away by car.

Of course, this elegant Stamford hotel is great for more than just meetings. Its 25,000 square feet of event space includes banquet hall options for weddings, an ambient pavilion for groups and catering menus that are at once inspired and satisfying.

Whether guests are staying for a meeting, an event or the holidays, they can indulge in the guestrooms' luxurious Revive bedding, mini-refrigerators and coffeemakers and new flat-panel HD televisions that include premium movie channels. And with a spa, fitness center and two mouthwatering restaurants all on property, a stay at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa is one gift that keeps on giving, no matter the season.
