The Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel will serve as an extension of George Mason’s School of Business, especially its Executive Programs—Executive Education, Executive MBA and MS in Technology Management programs—which will call home one of The Mason Inn’s four fully equipped office spaces. The programs will use The Mason Inn’s meeting rooms as classrooms and the ballrooms will serve host to conferences.
The Mason Inn was recently accepted as the newest member of The International Association of Conference Centers (IACC). All members of the IACC are venues recognized for offering the highest-quality meeting facilities to business professionals.
Opening in July 22, 2010, The Mason Inn boasts superior services and a highly trained staff to create a first-class meeting experience. It features 148 guest rooms and 20,000 square feet of meeting space, including 12 meeting rooms, two ballrooms, and a full-service restaurant and lounge.
In addition to the technological capabilities of The Mason Inn, the IACC recognized dozens of other unique features, including ideal acoustic levels in each meeting room, a full-service business supply desk and individual meeting room climate controls.
The complex is based at Mason’s Fairfax Campus just off Route 123 near Braddock Road and is convenient to major interstates, public transportation and airports.
“We’re very excited about how this outstanding facility will provide our university with the means to better accommodate the many visitors and organizations that travel here to attend events, use our facilities and enjoy the surrounding region,” says Mason President Alan Merten.
“It gives a new dimension to the overall university that only adds to the excellence we seek to achieve inside the classroom and beyond.”
The Mason Inn’s ideal location will serve a variety of campus groups and functions. Being situated near the Center for Performing Arts, the Recreation and Athletic Complex and the Patriot Center will prove to be advantageous, especially when notable performances come to campus.
