The Mark Pairs Up with MacLaren for Fashionable Hotel Stroller
Don't pretend you haven't noticed. There are pregnant women and babies everywhere you look. It's like a walking advertisement of "I know what YOU DID LAST FALL!". We pretend to coo and smile at your love bugs and belly, but we're really smirking, you nasty thangs, you!
Still, for those of us who have babies and toddlers to schlepp around, the number one pain-in-the-ass is the stroller. (The car seat gets a close second). It's all, folding, un-folding, lugging, latching, and then the folding again. And that's for a basic model. We're counting down the days until we never have to travel with a stroller again. (We've got about 600 or so to go.)
Mercifully, hotels are starting to come to our rescue by offering strollers for guests to use during their stay.
And in Manhattan, The Mark on the Upper East Side has upped the ante by pairing up with high-end stroller brand, MacLaren, to create a super stylish Mark Hotel Baby Stroller that's done up in the Mark's signature black and white stripes. This stroller is Bergdorf and Madison Avenue shopping ready.
The strollers will be available to use starting April 15th. There is no cost but rooms at the hotel do start around $650 a night and the best rooms to book for families are the courtyard one-bedroom suites which has some extra living room space or the two-bedroom suites which have a kitchen and a living and dining room. Of course, that costs way more than $650 a night...but that might be worth it just not to tussle with a stroller, at least for a little while.
