In the early spring, the Providence Marriott Downtown sent a survey to a group of past guests with the goal of receiving some important information. The questions asked about what their guests would want in a perfect hotel stay. Guests were asked questions that would help the marketing team create getaway packages that guests wanted to buy! Novel idea, right? Well, here’s the cool part. The guests responded and responded, to the point where the survey had to have an expiration date as only so much data could be managed. The answers were sorted and here were the results.
Every single participant* wanted some sort of food and/or beverage element included in their dream getaway package – not spa services, not tickets to area attractions but food (& beverage). Having breakfast included was a must. Complimentary room upgrade and late check out (or early check in) were next in line.
So the team at the Providence Marriott Downtown developed three new F&B based experiences:
- Chefs’ Tasting Escape – Includes: breakfast buffet for two and a complimentary sampling from the Chef of the Bluefin Grille
- Bourbon & Bites – Includes: breakfast buffet for two, two complimnetary appetizers and a bourbon sampling at the Bluefin Lounge
The most recent addition to the Providence Marriott’s getaway package collection is the AQUA Tower for Two package. This package showcases AQUA’s 2016 signature cocktail – you guessed it! – the Tower for Two!
This amazingly delicious and refreshing cocktail is truly cocktails for two with enough for each to have one mighty poolside beverage and a little extra. You can find this all new and extremely popular package by clicking HERE.
