Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
One of the best ways for travelers to enjoy the sights and sounds of San Francisco is by staying on the Concierge Level at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront. Guests can follow the lead of some returning visitors to the hotel, a barn owl family that hotel guests can help name this summer.
The owl family first made its appearance last June and enjoyed the balcony off of Room 1141 so much that the parents came back to hatch another set of offspring.
The returning owls will be presented with a Marriott Rewards membership card, which offers hotel points or airline miles with every stay. Visitors and owl lovers can see photos of the family at the hotel’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/SanFranciscoAirportMarriott. The San Francisco waterfront hotel staff always wants to know their guests better, so they have launched a Facebook contest to help name the owls. The “Hoo’s Hoo?” contest and updated information are posted on the Facebook page.
By staying on the Concierge Level for the summer, the owls can enjoy benefits regular guests have come to love. The Concierge Lounge at the San Francisco airport hotel offers complimentary continental breakfast, hors d’oeuvres and dessert as well as nonalcoholic beverages and cocktails for a fee. The “Hoot Suite,” where the owls have temporarily set up residence, is usually left unoccupied, but when the hotel is sold out, guests who stay in that room are asked to be respectful of the owls.
To help celebrate the return of the owl family, children staying at the Burlingame hotel will receive a free stuffed owl to remember their visit. Guests staying in Room 1141 also will receive stuffed owls to commemorate their stay.
Besides cute owls, the hotel’s amenities and location near San Francisco are perfect for families and businesspeople on the go. Rooms feature plus king or double beds topped with down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows, something only the humans get to experience. Guests also will appreciate spacious desks with ergonomic chairs, irons and ironing boards, coffeemakers and 27-inch flat-screen high-definition TVs.
Just minutes from San Francisco International Airport, the hotel is also 15 minutes from downtown San Francisco. With a great location and terrific views of the San Francisco Bay, the hotel is perfect for meetings or the grandest of social gatherings. The hotel in Burlingame, CA, has almost 28,000 square feet of event space and can house 1,560 guests in the Grand Ballroom.
