A Getaway Giveaway from Marriott’s Residence Inn

I lived for road trips when I was a kid. We grew up in a rural berg nestled in the High Desert of Southern California. Escaping Getting to go anywhere that held the promise of new faces, food mom hadn’t cooked and “modern amenities” was a big treat. Heck, my Hip Hippie parents didn’t even get us a TV until well after I’d become one of the Tooth Fairy’s favorites. Hotels were like a wonderland for my brothers and I. Our own little slice of Narnia, equipped with a talking box, “Magic Fingers” and a glittering machine that made us ice.. Whenever. We. Wanted!

My kids have it all. Yet they still get giddy when I say we’re headed to a hotel. Most of the time I’m a bit less excited. Having to hide the room service menu, explaining to the front desk that my 5 year old doesn’t get that they aren’t there to talk to her for hours on end about Justin and Selena and the search for “second breakfast” after the stale bagels and yogurt don’t get it done for them… not things I look forward to.

That all changed last summer when we booked a quick escape to a Residence Inn in Virginia Beach. All of the sudden I was loving the hotel time! This place had everything a family of 6 could want and more. Heck the breakfast alone was worth going back for.

We’ll stay up all night, swap stories and in the morning THEY are makin’ waffels!

Residence Inn realizes how busy life can be for moms and strives to make traveling seamless and as comfortable as possible with spacious suites, free hot breakfast, free Internet, swimming pools, great value and as we found out in Virginia Beach… AMAZING SERVICE!

What I loved most about  Residence Inn by Marriott, was the balance between getting away from it all and still enjoying the comforts of home. While Residence Inn is best known for their extended hotel stays, the suites at Residence Inn are PERFECT for family vacations!  Though I’m not terribly keen on having to cook while on vacay, I hate a huge eating out tab too so the fully equipped in-suite kitchens with a full sized refrigerator, stove,  and microwave make it easy to feed the brood on the cheap. The coffee makers make it safe for my family to be in the same room with me.

This month we’ll be traveling to the Residence Inn in historic downtown Savannah

Gorge, huh?! I’m looking forward to seeing all Savannah has to offer and taking advantage of the free grocery delivery service that Residence Inns provide. Hello, anytime I can NOT go to a grocery store, I’m all about that!

So now on to the fun stuff for YOU. Want to getaway this summer and check out all the AWESOME that is Residence Inns? Then you’re in the right place. One lucky reader will be going home with a $250 gift card for a stay at any Residence Inn in the country! Check out all the details below. GOOD LUCK!


Disclosure: As ALWAYS my opinions are my own. As a member of the Resident Mom Club, I received a gift card from Residence Inn in order to get out there and get you the best perspective I could. Because, well… you’re worth it! The contest prize is being supplied to the winner by Marriott.
