We've been traveling all over with ER since she was a baby. She's quite the expert at hotel stays, starting with our cross country road trip from NM to MI when she was four months old. We've spent many hours in the car, eaten at many rest stops, and stayed at countless hotels. Having a young child has never stopped us from getting out and about. We love to travel, and with a few a adjustments we've found its possible to do as much and have just as much fun with a little one too.
Now traveling is even easier for parents traveling with young children! Marriott International, Inc. has got you covered! Their new Tots Travel Too program is available at more than 2,500 Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites hotels in the continental U.S. and Canada.
The complimentary program provides guests, upon request, with a travel crib and laundered COVERPLAY® removable crib slipcover to ensure their “traveler-in-training” can rest comfortably. For a bit of bath time fun, a complimentary gift comes with the COVERPLAY, an animal squirtie toy. In addition, parents who have forgotten to pack their tot's essentials can contact the front desk for complimentary items, including outlet covers, nightlights, baby shampoo, and baby lotion, plus disposable bibs will be available in the breakfast areas. Having disposable bibs would be one of my biggest traveling tips, so it's great that Marriott has already thought of that!
Peggy Fang Roe, Vice President, Global Brand Management, TownePlace Suites & Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott International, Inc. said, “We’ve developed the Tots Travel Too program to meet the unique needs of families traveling with very young children. By helping reassure parents, the Tots Travel Too program helps them to relax, enjoy their trip and create long-lasting and happy memories with their families.”
You could win a Tots Travel Too Gift Pack, like the one shown above.
