Chauncey Hotel and Conference Announces Completion of Major Renovation. Princeton Facility Offers Perfect Complement of Business and Leisure Services

(Princeton, NJ, February 19, 2009) – The Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center, an ARAMARK managed property, has announced the completion of its multi-faceted facility renovation. Improvements included the addition of 12 new executive rooms and two suites – bringing the total to 100 guest rooms and suites — while all rooms received upgrades to the bathrooms facilities. Business and hotel visitors will also note the structural and landscaping changes, including a new walkway leading to the lake – providing outdoor meeting, special event, and wedding opportunities in the warmer months.

Chauncey, located on 370 acres just outside of Princeton, New Jersey, encompasses 9,500 square feet of meeting and guest room space, including 22 conference rooms. With easy access to both the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, the center also offers its guests state-of-the-art business services, with high-speed wireless internet, video teleconferencing, and personalized business, dining and lodging services to accommodate meetings and group of all sizes.

“Like with any business, we continually strive to provide the best business and leisure setting as we possibly can, and that was the force behind our recent renovation,” said Cindy Zimmerman, director of sales and marketing at Chauncey. “Businesses are looking for affordable, comprehensive solutions for holding meetings and events off site,” Ms. Zimmerman noted. With the business climate that exists now, Chauncey is that country retreat where companies and organizations can regroup, recharge and reinvigorate their sales and management teams, while still respecting their bottom line costs.”

In addition, the Chauncey offers a unique lodging and business meeting setting in the Laurie House – an adjacent, restored farmhouse that serves as an executive retreat for meetings and lodging, or as a B&B-style romantic getaway for the leisure traveler.
