TownePlace Suites by Marriott® and long-time partner The Container Store® have you covered this holiday season. Starting today, the extended-stay hotel brand will play Santa’s Little Helper by rolling out self-service gift wrapping stations at select hotels to make holiday gift giving a little easier for guests. The gift wrapping stations will offer a curated collection of The Container Store’s Gift Wrap Wonderland – the world’s most celebrated collection of gift wrap, ribbons, totes and more – and also provide expert gift wrapping tips and tricks to impress loved ones while on the road this holiday season.
The self-service gift wrapping stations are an extension of the existing partnership between the fastest growing brand in the Marriott portfolio and the nation’s leading retailer of storage and organization products. In 2013, TownePlace Suites partnered with The Container Store to become one of the first hotel brands to encourage organization and productivity during extended stays. Today, guests can utilize The Container Store’s best-selling elfa® custom closet in more than 150 TownePlace Suites locations across the US and Canada.
Through this partnership, travelers are able to unpack their suitcase into a custom elfa® closet while getting comfortable and unwinding in their spacious suite. From drawers to shelves to smart hanging space, guests will find everything they need to make them feel right at home at TownePlace Suites. This holiday season in select hotel lobbies, guests can also stay organized and wrap up holidays while on the road with the DIY gift wrapping stations featuring wrapping paper, ribbons, totes and tissue paper from The Container Store in addition to the right tools needed to create the perfect gift presentation.
“At TownePlace Suites, we believe that having the space to organize and the tools to get things done makes for a happier traveler,” said Loren Nalewanski vice president and global brand manager for TownePlace Suites. “That is why this holiday season we are working with our incredible partner and the organization experts at The Container Store to provide our guests with the supplies they need to spread happiness to all of the special people in their lives.”
The self-service gift wrapping stations will be featured in select TownePlace Suites locations throughout the country from December 1st through December 31st. For more information, please visit www.TownePlaceSuites.com.
