Staff at Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport have been celebrating the first anniversary of the hotel’s opening in style, with a string of events to mark a fantastic first year.
Staff were treated to a special team lunch, including a delicious roast dinner and personalised birthday cake depicting the hotel.
All of the staff also received a commemorative bar of chocolate embossed with an image of the hotel, as a thank-you for all of their hard work over the past year.
The festivities continued with an invitation extended to all of the residential guests to join the team for an exclusive birthday party in the hotel’s stylish bar.
The celebrations culminated in Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce’s ‘One Year On’ networking event which was hosted by Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport.
A vibrant breakfast selection was enjoyed by all, consisting of fruit salad cones, scrumptious pastries and mini cupcakes.
More than 20 guests attended the event and were also treated to a tour of the hotel, which was the perfect way to honour the occasion following on from last year’s networking event during which the guests got a sneak preview of the hotel before it officially opened.
Mohammed Azam, General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating a very successful first year in Luton, and what better way to mark the occasion than celebrating with our whole team, our guests and our local community.
“When we opened our doors a year ago, our aim was to provide first-class facilities and convenience, in a prime location, for holidaymakers and business travellers alike.
“Through the hard work of our team, we’ve successfully achieved the highest quality scores for online travel agency booking sites, beating the competition both in the local area and our wider competitor market. We’re also celebrating consistently high occupancy rates.
“In just one year, we’ve firmly established ourselves both in the local community while also building strong relationships with major businesses and airlines.
“We appreciate anyone who’s visited Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport over the past year, and we hope to continue to welcome guests, new and old, for many more memorable years to come.”
