Marriott “Nickelodeon Your Stay” – Making Hotel Stays More Kid-Friendly

NickelodeonGiftPack School will be starting back before you know it. But there’s still plenty of time to take a vacation. If you haven’t taken yours yet, I have some good news for you – Marriott has teamed with Nickelodeon to make your stay more kid-friendly. Because how many times have you heard “I’m bored!”, while hanging out in your hotel room? Well with ‘Nickelodeon Your Stay’ your kids will have some fun SpongeBob or Dora The Explorer gear and activities to keep them entertained.

Starting July 1st, 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, 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.

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 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.

SpongeBob3DCraft My son loves Spongebob, and when the UPS guy delivered our Nickelodeon gift pack he was beside himself with excitement. You really would think the kid never gets anything. 🙂 He built his 3-D SpongeBob first and asked me to put his SpongeBob pillowcase on his pillow.  He read me the storybook and put everything… plus some more of his toys inside the activity bag.

I can say that if you have kids it can help make your stay away from home more pleasant.

Just so you know: I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by 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.
