At nearly 2,000 Marriott hotels across the United States, kids now have access to free Nickelodeon-themed activities. Each child receives a Nickelodeon bracelet with a code to access free online games at Nick.com, as well as an activity book with puzzles and mazes. In hotel restaurants, kids get a free placemat featuring their favorite Nickelodeon characters, Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants.
At many hotels with the Marriott brand, including Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, and TownePlace Suites, you can opt for a special upgrade package for only $10. This gets you all the free items mentioned above, plus a SpongeBob SquarePants activity bag and splash ball (perfect for the hotel pool), Nickelodeon sunglasses, and a 3-D build-your-own SpongeBob craft. For an extra $20 at Marriott and JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, kids get all of the items mentioned above, plus a special SpongeBob or Dora pillowcase and storybook!
If you’re planning a trip this summer that includes a hotel stay, I suggest you visit www.nickelodeonyourstay.com for more information about this terrific kid-friendly promotion. You can also find free, downloadable Nickelodeon-themed travel games on the site, as well as a travel journal, travel bingo and coloring pages!
DISCLOSURE: I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Marriott and received a Nickelodeon gift pack to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central also sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
