Marriott Loves Tots Who Travel

Marriott is going above and beyond to make sure its youngest guests are welcomed, comfortable, and safe at more than 2,500 Marriott brand hotels with its new Tots Travel Too program. To celebrate, Marriott wants to give you an opportunity to win a Tots Travel Too gift pack! Read on to find out more about the program and how you can enter to win.

The complimentary Tots Travel Too program provides parents with a travel crib and laundered COVERPLAY removable crib slipcover. Outlet covers and nightlights are available to keep baby safe and secure away from home. Even toiletries for tots and disposable bibs are on-hand. Plus Marriott will give your wee one an adorable squirting tub toy for bath-time fun to take home with you.

With many airlines requiring payment for checked baggage, gone are the days when it was easy to just bring along your own travel crib. A few months ago, I recommended COVERPLAY as a convenient way to keep cribs germ-free while traveling in Your Travel Questions Answered.

Now your baby can sleep soundly and healthfully at any Marriott brand hotel in a crib protected with a cover that mom and dad know has been cleaned just for your family. In partnership with COVERPLAY, Marriott has had slipcovers specifically designed to match the décor at all of their brand locations, which include Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, and TownePlace Suites.

  1. Carla Spence says:

    Always pack snacks and lots of water.

  2. Sean Fidance says:

    Wear them out before a long car ride so that they’ll be sleepy and they’ll just fall asleep instead of getting bored and fidgety.

  3. also make sure you pack something for the kids to do.crayons,coloring books,etc

  4. Be sure to pack lots of healthy (and mess-free) snacks!

  5. Bring a backpack full of toys, games, books and activities to keep them busy.

  6. I only pack enough diapers for the first day and then buy diapers when I get to me destination. They take up so much room in the suitcase. For my six year old I try to get something new for him to take on the plane to play with, maybe a new coloring book, or card game.

  7. Abigail says:

    Bring special *favorite* snacks that you can use to bribe your little ones (we bring healthy fruit snacks or yogurt covered raisins). Also if you have to stay in a motel…stay with one with a pool.
