Denver, Colorado – July 13, 2017 – Destination Hotels, a collection of award-winning hotels and resorts in premier vacation destinations around the United States and Caribbean, today announces its partnership with Babierge, offering guests quality baby gear to use during their stays and allowing traveling families to enjoy all the comforts of home. Babierge is the leading baby gear rental marketplace, connecting traveling families with local “Trusted Partners” -- independent concierges who rent out, deliver, and set up a wide variety of baby gear in a guest’s hotel room, and then return to pick it up on departure day. Babierge’s inventory ranges from small comforts, such as books and toys, to bulkier equipment such as cribs, strollers, and Pack ‘n Plays. The partnership between Destination Hotels and Babierge was created to enable a seamless family travel experience and is the first-of-its-kind between a leading hotel brand and a baby gear rental marketplace.
“Destination Hotels is continuously striving to make the vacation experience stress-free and enjoyable for our guests and that’s exactly what this partnership with Babierge is helping us accomplish,” said Jamie Sabatier, CEO, Two Roads Hospitality, parent company of Destination Hotels. “Babierge takes away the hassle of packing and transporting baby gear on vacation so that families can focus on what’s important – spending quality time with one another.”
“When it comes to traveling families, Babierge and Destination Hotels share a common mission – to help guests have fun, restful and memorable vacations with their children,” said Fran Maier, CEO and Co-Founder of Babierge. “When babies sleep well in comfortable cribs, and are engaged and play happily with age-appropriate equipment and toys during the day, the entire family can relax and recharge.”
Babierge’s mission is to help traveling families pack light, travel far, and make lasting memories. To use the service, families visit www.babierge.com/destinationhotels and select their desired gear as well as delivery and pickup dates and times. Parents leave information about their children’s ages and interests when ordering so that Babierge Trusted Partners, who deliver, set up, and pick up the rental equipment, can customize toy packages to delight the entire family. The Babierge baby gear will then be delivered to the Destination Hotels property and set up in the guest’s room for the length of their stay. A typical guest rental from Babierge could include such items as the BOB Revolution PRO Jogging Stroller ($12/day); InLighten Cradling Swing ($8/day); BabyBjorn Travel Crib ($12/day); EvenFlow Baby Exersaucer ($5/day); toys and books, and more. Rental prices vary by market.
Destination Hotels guests will receive an exclusive 10% discount on Babierge rental fees. In order to book a stay at a Destination Hotels property and reserve baby gear through Babierge, please visit www.babierge.com/destinationhotels.
