Residence Inn Helps Families Plan Successful Summer Vacations
Spring is in the air and as kids start to daydream about end of the school year, the decision-makers in the family are starting to plan the highlight of the hot months: the family summer vacation. But how do parents make the right choice? Once a destination is agreed upon, they have to make sure to choose the right hotel in order to assure peace in the family and a successful trip.
“We know families need space to spread out,” says Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager, Residence Inn by Marriott. “We provide families with spacious suites featuring all of the conveniences of home including a full kitchen, pools for kids’ entertainment and complimentary breakfast to help keep costs down.”
To demonstrate its commitment to making parents’ lives easier, Residence Inn has partnered with innovative family website MacaroniKid.com on their first-ever Family Travel Expo and Blogger Conference, May 6 – 7, 2012 in New York City at Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square. Hundreds of attendees are expected for the Expo, which will showcase various family travel destinations, with Residence Inn as the host and presenting sponsor. Even the little ones are invited to join in on the fun – while parents research their next family getaway, kids can participate in creative activities.
"Residence Inn understands the things that make family travel easier,” says Joyce Shulman, CEO of Macaroni Kid. “Those amenities, combined with their incredible management team made them the perfect partner for Macaroni Kid's inaugural Family Travel Expo and Conference."
Residence Inn by Marriott makes it easy with more than 600 locations across the country and abroad, a new family travel initiative and a guarantee of family-friendly amenities. According to a recent survey conducted by Residence Inn, 33 percent of moms have removed minibar items to keep juice and milk cold and nearly half of moms have washed dishes and bottles in the bathroom sink while traveling with their families. At Residence Inn, moms don’t have to worry – each spacious suite has a kitchen with full sized fridges and sinks, free Internet and even laundry facilities and grocery delivery. The brand’s new advertising campaign showcases all of these amenities that Residence Inn offers to parents with children in tow.
