Team work really makes the dream work! No matter what event you are planning, it always works best when you work with trusted partners, who go above and beyond to make your vision come true. At LIUNA Gardens we take pride in working with trusted vendors who help our guest have the best experience. We recently caught up with  Janice DeSilva-Pearcey, Director of Sales & Marketing at Casablanca Inn, to talk about her role, the perks of working with LIUNA Gardens, and tips for readers looking for accommodations for their special event.
LG: Can you tell us a bit about your role at Casablanca Inn?   
JDP: My role at Casablanca Inn is the Sales & Catering Coordinator where I support events for Corporate Groups & Corporate Individual travel.
LG: What are some of the perks of working with a nearby venue, that hosts many weddings and other special events?
JDP: I would say the biggest perk is our established relationship with LIUNA and our trusted partnerships. Knowing each other’s properties, knowing that each other’s guests will be well looked after.
LG: For our readers interested in booking with Casablanca Inn, how far in advance should a large group need to book overnight accommodations?  
JDP: Weekends tend to be our busiest nights, due to onsite Weddings and events. It would be best to contact the hotel as soon as travel dates are known.
LG: What features do you provide for guests who need to stay for an extended amount of time?  
JDP: Our hotel has two Restaurants onsite – Bogey’s Grillhouse and Panorama Restaurant & Wine Bar. We also have a fitness centre, indoor heated pool, hot tub and full service spa.  All of these amenities are available to our guests. Please note, spa services are subject to applicable fees, and available times.

LG: With so many hotels in the GTHA, what sets Casablanca Inn apart from others?  
JDP: Very unique, boutique style hotel, with full services. Elegant atmosphere.
LG: Can you share with us your favourite part about working with wedding parties in the hospitality industry?  
JDP: Meeting with the Brides & Grooms for the first time, and seeing their vision of their special day come to life!
LG: What advice do you have for readers who are searching for accommodations for their special event?
JDP: Visit the property first if they can – or definitely review online!
