MARRIOTT ANNOUNCES UP TO 65 PERCENT OFF SUMMER ROOM RATES, 'KIDS EAT FREE' WASHINGTON, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott Hotels, Resorts and Suites announced today it will offer travelers summer room rates at up to 65 percent off the regular rate, and a "Kids Eat Free" program. Marriott's 21-day and 14-day advance purchase/non-refundable summer rates will be available at over 185 hotels seven days a week from June 19 through Sept. 7, 1992. Many Marriotts are offering weekday room rates as low as $59 and $69 per night and weekend rates as low as $49 per night. (Some hotels are offering even lower rates). As an added bonus, Marriott is also offering a "Kids Eat Free" program for children 8 and under who are dining with a registered guest. "Our advance purchase room rates have been very popular with consumers since we first offered them 18 months ago," said Robert Bloch, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Marriott Hotels, Resorts and Suites. "Qualified pricing such as advance purchase and advance reservations has simplified rates, improved price/value and created perhaps the best opportunity ever for consumers to save on hotels and air travel." Since Marriott introduced advance purchase room rates in late 1990, travelers have saved over $20 million. Following this summer, Marriott will continue to offer 21 and 14 day advance purchase rates with savings of 40 to 50 percent. At 53 hotels the company is currently testing both seven- and three-day advance "reservation" room rates. Marriott also offers daily business rates of up to 25 percent off the regular rate and "Two For Breakfast Weekend" rates featuring 30 to 45 percent savings. "Two For Breakfast Weekend" rates are available Thursday through Sunday nights, include a complete breakfast for two each day of the stay and do not require an advance purchase. To take advantage of Marriott's summer rates, reservations must be made at least 21 days or 14 days in advance (depending on the selected rate), and only a credit card will be accepted. Travelers can start making reservations on May 4 by calling Marriott's toll- free reservations number, 800-228-9290, the hotel of their choice, or their travel agent. Guests can purchase up to nine rooms per stay; however, the rates are not available to groups larger than 10. Marriott's summer rates are offered on a limited basis and some black-out dates do apply. The rates are not available at Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott and Fairfield Inns by Marriott.
