FEATURED VENDOR: An Interview with The Clarion Providence/Seekonk

An interview with the Clarion Providence/Seekonk   |   May 27, 2014

Last month I coordinated a boudoir marathon and reserved the bridal suite at the Clarion located in Seekonk, MA. The room layout worked out really well and my clients loved their photos! Shortly after, the hotel asked me to photograph their ballrooms and lobby to help promote their new space as they remodeled recently.

We had a chance to sit down with Stephanie George who is the Director of Sales, here’s what she had to say:

Q: What types of services does your hotel offer?
A: We are a deluxe service property. We provide overnight accommodations {with the plus side of all the amenities included}, have the convenience of an onsite restaurant/lounge, room service for those who prefer, function space of various sizes to host an event and on site catering. We also have staff on the property that can help to provide extra support for larger groups in the hotel, specialty events in the restaurant, and event coordination for any event in our function space.

Q: What types of events does the hotel host?
A: Our customers are amazing and extremely creative. We welcome any and all ideas. If we have the space, we will make it happen! We recently hosted a fundraiser of 500 people, with three other events going on the same night. We do everything from weddings, birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, corporate meetings, fundraisers, proms, college events and reunions…The list keeps growing though!

Q: How many rooms and suites are available?
A: There are 125 rooms and 6 suites in total in our hotel. These suites range from jacuzzi suites, to larger room options, to a 3 room master suite.

Q: What amenities are available?
A: Amenities that come complimentary include parking, wireless internet, full hot breakfast in the morning, complimentary newspaper, cable and free HBO on your 32′ flat screen TV, fitness center, indoor pool, outdoor courtyard with fireplace and cookies every evening <—- sounds yummy! The hotel is also pet friendly!

Q: Why the Clarion hotel vs others in the area?
A: We are family owned and I truly believe that people feel that when they walk into our hotel, restaurant, and function space. Those that check in to our hotel or function with us will quickly get to know the staff and we take immediate action into making sure they enjoy their time with us and create a customized experience for them. We take the time to sit down with everyone that comes in to book an event or a block of rooms for a special occasion. It’s wonderful to see some families come back year after year! We started with the parents having their wedding here, and now their children, and any milestone parties along the way. We feel that as their family grows and changes, we become an extension of them.
