Oh the adventures of traveling with tots! As a family who takes every opportunity to travel, we have plenty of experience traveling with tots and I can tell you from experience that something is always forgotten! I typically type out a list (I know, I’m so fancy) and scratch off the items as I go, however it’s the smallest details that seem to be forgotten such as outlet covers when staying at hotels. I bet you didn’t think of that either, did you? Little hands can place their fingers in hotel outlets just as easily as they do at home, which is why Marriot has recently partnered with Amy Feldman & Allison Costa, of COVERPLAY (see Flickr photos of these two fabulous ladies HERE) to launch the “Tots Travel Too” Program!
Marriot Tots Travel Too Program
If your a parent traveling with small children, Marriot has you covered, quite literally. This new program is designed to make traveling with tots easier on parents by providing guests, upon request, with a travel crib and laundered COVERPLAY removable crib slipcover to ensure their “traveler-in-training” can rest comfortably! A complimentary gift also comes with the COVERPLAY, an animal squirtie toy, because bath time is just too fun to pass up! Additionally, if parents forget to pack their tiny tots essentials, guests can simply contact the front desk and receive complimentary items, including outlet covers, nightlights, baby shampoo, and baby lotion. Disposable bibs will also be available in the breakfast areas!
This exclusive slip cover developed by COVERPLAY will be featured at more than 2,500 hotels across the U.S. and Canada, including, Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites hotels, as well as available for purchase on www.shopmarriott.com. To learn more about Coverplay and the two fun women behind the company, y9u can play out their real life drama by visiting their Tots Travel Too channel on Youtube.
I don’t know about you, but I cannot tell you the countless times I have forgotten an essential items such as baby shampoo, and had to send my husband out to find a local drugstore. It’s inconvenient and it takes away from the traveling experience…a parenting “time out” if you will. With Marriots new program, parents everywhere can relax and enjoy their family vacation time without those dreaded “time out’s”!
