RESIDENCE INN BY MARRIOTT, 800-FLOWERS AND HERTZ OFFER TRAVELERS A WAY TO CONNECT WITH LOVED ONES

RESIDENCE INN BY MARRIOTT, 800-FLOWERS AND HERTZ OFFER TRAVELERS
 A WAY TO CONNECT WITH LOVED ONES
 WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- In July of this year, Residence Inn by Marriott presented research pointing out that travel stress goes two ways: on the family back home as well as on the traveler.
 Taking cues from this research, Residence Inn by Marriott has teamed with the Hertz Corporation and 800-FLOWERS in a cooperative promotion that gives travelers the ability to send a special gift to loved ones back home: a bouquet of flowers.
 Between Oct. 12 and Dec. 11, 1992, guests who stay four or more consecutive nights at any one of 178 Residence Inn hotels and rent a Hertz car for four days or longer will be able to send flowers home free anywhere in the continental United States by calling 800-FLOWERS. Hotel stays and car rentals do not have to occur at the same time.
 "While Residence Inn hotels do a great job of creating a home-away-from-home atmosphere for our guests, travelers still want to connect with their loved ones back home," said Rufus Schriber, vice president of marketing for Residence Inn. "Now, along with Hertz and 800-FLOWERS, we're giving travelers a way to send a special 'I'm thinking about you' message to family and friends."
 Residence Inn, the nation's largest extended stay hotel chain with 178 hotels in 41 states, caters to travelers who need to be on the road for more than a few days. Generally built like a community of townhomes, Residence Inn hotels feature spacious studio rooms, penthouse suites, and one- and two-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchens. Many rooms have fireplaces.
 Complimentary continental breakfast and a daily newspaper are standard at all Residence Inn hotels, along with valet and free grocery shopping service. Residence Inn is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Marriott Corporation (NYSE: MHS).
 800-FLOWERS, headquartered in Westbury (Long Island), N.Y., is the international flowers-by-phone service that enables consumers to order top-quality floral arrangements -- satisfaction guaranteed -- for any gift-giving occasion on a 24-hour basis, 365 days a year.
 The Hertz Corporation is the world's largest and oldest car rental company. Established in 1918, it operates more than 5,000 locations in over 130 countries in a worldwide fleet of approximately 420,000 vehicles. Hertz is headquartered in Park Ridge, N.J.
