YPSILANTI, MI — Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest recently opened a new conference and wedding venue next to its hotel that can hold several hundred people.
The 4,800-square-foot venue, which sits near Ford Lake and Eagle Crest Golf Club, is meant to replace a stationary tent originally used for similar events. In addition to a warming kitchen and hospitality suite, two sides of the venue can open up to provide an open-air feel.
The venue can seat up to 250 people for a banquet and up to 350 for a conference.
“The possibilities are really endless,” said Jennifer Gratz-Pierson, Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest spokeswoman.
Plans for the venue were drawn up in 2020 when the COVID=19 pandemic forced the hotel to cancel its booked stays and events.
“Despite the difficulties with canceled meetings and events, we saw a great opportunity to invest in our new venue and to move forward in building it,” said Hotel General Manager Jamie Vecchioni.
Those interested in booking the venue can call Gratz-Pierson at 734-821-6161 or email Jennifer.Gratzemail@example.com.
