Marriott Knows The Way To Your Heart...Is Through Your Stomach
Valentine's Day is still five months away, but Marriott is clearly in the mood for love. Yesterday, the company announced two new promotions—"More Love In The World" and "Cake From Buddy"—that not only let couples indulge in a little suite-snuggling, but also ply them with cake! Buddy "Cake Boss" Valastro will welcome guest couples to his New Jersey facilities to discuss their dream wedding cake; and then, he'll bake it for them.
Can't make it to Jersey? That's OK, Valastro is open to video conferencing too. The point is, Marriott seems to be really enjoying playing Cupid.
In order to choose from the 24 custom cake designs, all you have to do is book your wedding or another "qualifying event" at a Marriott in the tri-state area between now and February 29. What qualifies as an event on par with a wedding? Well, hopefully, dessert.
Dovetailing with the whole matrimonial theme, head to Marriott East Side for the "More Love In The World" package, which essentially pampers newlyweds with bonus amenities like a champagne welcome, free room upgrade, and a late 2pm check-out. All the little things that make you think, "gee, if I'm having this much fun, I must have married the right person!" Rates around the other properties will vary, but at Marriott East Side, the promotion brings prices down to a starting rate of $279 (using the promotional code "ZJ7").
As for the tasty treats, Valastro hinted that his partnership with Marriott may extend to other US properties in the future. But, for now, he wants to do things "at the right pace." But as long as we get to sample the goods, any pace is cool with us.
