Residence Inn helps families plan successful summer vacations… as they hosted the first Family Travel Expo in NYC!

I had the pleasure of attending Macaroni Kid’s Family and Travel Expo earlier this month.  We all had a great time visiting the different sponsors and vendors, learning about different options for our family’s next few trips.  We also learned about some great places within driving distance to do on hot summer days this year!  Hosted at the Residence Inn in Times Square, I thought I’d share more about Marriott with you!

Residence Inn partners in first-ever Family Travel Expo in New York City

Spring is in the air and as kids start to daydream about end of the school year, the decision-makers in the family are starting to plan the highlight of the hot months: the family summer vacation. But how do parents make the right choice? Once a destination is agreed upon, they have to make sure to choose the right hotel in order to assure peace in the family and a successful trip.

To demonstrate its commitment to making parents’ lives easier, Residence Inn partnered with innovative family website MacaroniKid.com on their first-ever Family Travel Expo and Blogger Conference, which was held on May 6 – 7, 2012 in New York City at Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square. Hundreds of attendees attended the Expo, which showcaseed various family travel destinations, with Residence Inn as the host and presenting sponsor.The little ones had fun with creative activities while parents researched their next family getaway.

Residence Inn by Marriott makes it easy to plan the next family trip with more than 600 locations across the country and abroad, a new family travel initiative and a guarantee of family-friendly amenities. According to a recent survey conducted by Residence Inn, 33 percent of moms have removed minibar items to keep juice and milk cold and nearly half of moms have washed dishes and bottles in the bathroom sink while traveling with their families. At Residence Inn, moms don’t have to worry – each spacious suite has a kitchen with full sized fridges and sinks, free Internet and even laundry facilities and grocery delivery. The brand’s new advertising campaign showcases all of these amenities that Residence Inn offers to parents with children in tow.
