Marriott Introduces 'Nickelodeon Your Stay'
While going on vacation is exciting, staying in a hotel can be overwhelming for kids because it lacks the comforts of home.
Starting July 1st, familes can arrange to "Nickelodeon Your Stay" at nearly 2,000 hotels with the Marriott brands. The luxury hotel chain is offering all kids free activities including a Nickelodeon bracelet with a code to access free online games at Nick.com, and an activity book with challenging puzzles and mazes. Kids who eat at the hotels' restaurants also receive a placemat featuring favorite Nickelodeon characters, SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer.
To get an idea of what a 'Nickelodeon Your Stay' would be like, Marriott sent us one of their kid's packages to see. Available as an upgrade package at several of Marriott's brands, including Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites locations for $10, this fun filled bag includes a SpongeBob activity bag and splash ball, Nickelodeon sunglasses, and a 3-D build-your-own SpongeBob craft. The package costs $20 at Marriott and JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts and kids get all the above items and a special SpongeBob SquarePants or Dora the Explorer pillowcase and storybook.
This well thought out package is a great way for kids to customize their own vacation. Having their own pillowcase and storybook is nice for bedtime, while the included bag, sunglasses and splashball will make pool time a blast.
Even though we aren't on vacation my boys have loved this whole pack. The pillowcase is now the center of my son's bed, the sunglasses never come off and the story has been in the nightime rotation since it arrived.
Not only will this be great while your away, but it would be a souvenir that would last for years after!
Visit www.nickelodeonyourstay.com for more information on the promotion and to start booking. This site also has free, downloadable, Nickelodeon themed travel games under the free goodies section, including a travel journal, travel bingo and coloring sheets.
