As the summer vacation season kicks into high gear, Marriott is looking to make the trip a bit easier for parents traveling with little ones. It’s new ‘Tots Travel Too™’ program provides guests, upon request, with a travel crib and laundered COVERPLAY® removable crib slipcover, complimentary bath toy, and has stocked their front desk with items parents may have forgotten such as outlet covers, nightlights, baby shampoo and baby lotion.
“As a parent with a child under three, I am definitely aware of all the planning and stress that can happen when traveling with toddlers,” said Peggy Fang Roe, vice president, Global Brand Management, TownePlace Suites & Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott International, Inc. “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.” The ‘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 U.S. and Canada.
As Marriott was developing its Tots Travel Too program, a few of its hotels began offering COVERPLAY slipcovers and it was receiving rave reviews from guests. Recognizing the great potential of the one-of-a-kind product for its guest traveling with small children, Marriott soon signed an agreement with COVERPLAY owners and business partners, Allison Costa and Amy Feldman, to offer their product at more than 2,500 hotels across the U.S. and Canada.
“As a mother of twin boys, I truly appreciate all that these five Marriott brands are doing to make travel easier for parents and their little ones,” said Allison Costa, founder and co-owner, COVERPLAY. “As a female small business owner, our new relationship with Marriott has also been instrumental in growing our small business.” In addition to being featured in the hotels, the COVERPLAY slipcovers are also available for individual purchase from www.shopmarriott.com.
