Let’s face it, a lot of times when we go on vacation it’s about the cheapest hotel. For the kids this is usually met with moans and groans about how “boring” it is. Marriott has teamed up with Nickelodeon to “Nickelodeon Your Stay.” From July 1st to December 26, 2010 you can arrange to “Nickelodeon Your Stay” at nearly 2,000 hotels with the Marriott brands. All kids get 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. Which I think is the coolest thing ever! We have done this with Disney characters at Disney World so my kids would love this.
To further the experience, Marriott and Nickelodeon also offer an upgrade package at several of Marriott’s brands, including Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites locations for $10 that includes all the free items plus 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. At great price points, Marriott and Nickelodeon make the stay easier and more engaging for us as parents and for the kids. 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. So even if your not going anywhere make sure to go look at all the cool free content.
