FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State Athletic Department and the Fort Collins Marriott have come to a partnership agreement, making the hotel the official Home of the Rams, the two organizations announced Friday.
In addition to serving as CSU's headquarters and hosting dozens of annual banquets and luncheons, the Fort Collins Marriott and its local sister properties, Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn, will house the football team the night before games and Ram fans anytime they are in town.
Whenever you are in town and need a hotel room, you can book it at either the Marriott, Residence Inn, or Courtyard, and receive a substantial discount. For instance, the normal rate at the Marriott is $119, with the CSU promotional code your rate would be $90. To get the discount, go to marriott.com and when you get to the reservation menu click on Corporate Promotional Code and type in ZCU.
“We are extremely pleased and excited to be able to partner with the Marriott,” Director of Athletics Paul Kowalczyk said. “Their commitment in these tough economic times demonstrates their belief in Ram Athletics and the value we bring to their brand and to the Fort Collins community.”
Additionally, Marriott will host CSU’s visiting guests, such as recruits and their families, and other business-related clients.
The athletic department will work diligently with the Marriott to establish Friday night tailgate parties during the football season.
“The scope of this agreement,” Kowalczyk said, “clearly illustrates our continuing desire to provide the best experience possible for our student-athletes while properly supporting our coaches in their efforts to run successful programs.”
