Happy Thursday friends- one more day till the weekend!!! Since we moved to San Diego in January I’ve only left once for a quick business trip to LA, and life has been hectic with the house selling/buying, 6 weeks staying with friends etc. And since we’ve been settled in the house I feel like my brain is running non-stop about how we can make it feel like home (design obsessive disorder, let’s call it). So when the Marriott reached out to offer us the opportunity to book a spontaneous staycation we jumped on that like a cat pounces on feather toy! So one random day when the mood struck us, using their mobile booking and check-in app we left the beach, booked a room, threw a few things in an overnight bag and headed out for our overnight stay at the Marriott Marquis. The mobile check-in app makes it super easy- you can check in after 4 pm the day before your arrival and the app notifies you when your room is ready!
Once we got there we hung out by the pool, ordered room service, checked out the amazing views from our room on the 23rd floor of the north tower (I got a little bit scaredy-cat-ish on the balcony for a second), lounged around and just generally made sloths of ourselves. It was just what the doctor ordered! My brain turned off, my vacation self turned on, and we were able to relax. Of course we snapped a few photos to share below. And here’s the bonus: From April 2 to December 31, 2015 Marriott guests who check-in with the mobile app during their stay at a hotel in the US, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands have a chance to win a grand prize of one million Marriott Rewards Points! That could be you my friends, and that’s A LOT of nights of R&R! Here’s a video Marriott produced to celebrate the millionth mobile guest check-in.
