Marriott Pere Marquette Reservations - Refrigerators

When we first contracted the Marriott Pere Marquette as one of our host hotels for the 2019 National, they were in the process of outfitting all rooms with refrigerators. We were promised that by our 2019 event that project would be complete. We had been checking in with them regularly to see if everything was still on schedule, and we were assured each time that it was!

In 2018 the owners of the property went into bankruptcy and all expenditures were put on hold. The property was subsequently sold, and we were again assured everything should be back on schedule to be completed in time. But unfortunately, time was not on their side, with the new owners just now coming out of receivership they had not been able to move forward with furnishing the final rooms with refrigerators.

We are currently working with the management and they are doing everything possible to alleviate this unfortunate situation. Please be patient and courteous in your dealings with the staff, as they will be doing their best to accommodate your needs.

Upon checking into the Pere Marquette, you will be asked if you need a refrigerator in your room. If you do not, please let them know so as many others that do can be accommodated!

Additionally, if the Pere is unable to provide you with a room with a refrigerator, you MAY be offered the opportunity to change your reservation to the Courtyard IF a room is available there. This will be determined at the time of your check-in, there are no guarantees!

For those of you they are unable to accommodate, the Pere will be providing already bagged ice free of charge for you to use in your coolers. Just ask at the front desk.

We apologize for this inconvenience and are making every effort to get the word out! Again, the staff at the Pere is going above and beyond to work with us on this, please be appreciative!
