Recent social listening research conducted on behalf of Marriott saw a significant year-over-year uptick in searches for #themedrooms (+106%) and “hotel rooms” + themed (+65%), suggesting consumers are craving more distinct and inspiring hotel experiences. Recommended for families and friends aged seven and up, the immersive adventure starts immediately upon entry to the room, which is a puzzle waiting to be solved. Intriguing elements are seamlessly woven into the décor and travelers will be able to uncover hidden messages, hunt for missing pieces, and experience elements of the room in unexpected and exciting ways. The room also features a “Curiosity Journal” which serves as a guide to the in-room riddles, with hints available in case guests need a helping hand. When the final challenge has been completed, guests receive a certificate and can celebrate with a complimentary dessert at the hotel’s restaurant.
Marriott Hotels has a longstanding, global partnership with TED. The relationship began in 2016 by distributing TED Talks and TED Fellows Salons, blogs, and original quotes to hotel guests worldwide, and has continued to elevate every year with new elements of the partnership. Travelers staying at Marriott Hotels have access to custom content expertly curated by TED, with selected themes that are topical and relevant to guests including innovation, travel, entrepreneurship, and much more. Specifically, new TED-Ed content will now be available at hotels with video-based lessons that vary by subject and age. To explore more, please visit TEDRooms.Marriott.com.
