Bangkok, Thailand, August 29, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / Industry Leaders Advance Longstanding Collaboration with Interactive Rooms, Available at Three Marriott Hotels Properties Around the World including Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park. Marriott Hotels furthers its partnership with idea engine TED through its award-winning educational arm TED-Ed, to debut their one-of-a kind immersive experience outside of a TED conference. Aimed at sparking curiosity and enriching the experience of global travelers, The Curiosity Room by TED features interactive, mind-bending activities integrated into the Marriott Hotels guest room design. Following the launch in San Francisco, California, the experiential interactive room experience will begin welcoming its first stays in Bangkok and soon, in London, with reservations for all three locations available now. From August 15 – November 15, 2022, guests can book this unique experience at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, the landmark five-star hotel in the heart of the Thai capital.
Recent social listening research conducted on behalf of Marriott saw a significant year-over-year uptick in searches for #themedrooms (+106%) and “hotel rooms” + themed (+65%), suggesting consumers are craving more distinct and inspiring hotel experiences.
Recommended for families and friends aged seven and up, the immersive adventure starts immediately upon entry to the room, which is a puzzle waiting to be solved. Intriguing elements are seamlessly woven into the décor and travelers will be able to uncover hidden messages, hunt for missing pieces, and experience elements of the room in unexpected and exciting ways. The room also features a “Curiosity Journal” which serves as a guide to the in-room riddles, with hints available in case guests need a helpful hand. When the final challenge has been completed, guests receive a certificate and can celebrate with a complimentary dessert at the hotel’s restaurant.
“At Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, we have always sought to be a place where guests can be inspired at every corner of their experience and we are pleased to be one of the three Marriott Hotels properties in the world to launch The Curiosity Room by TED,” said Simon Bell, General Manager, Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park. “The Curiosity Room by TED is a one-of-a-kind adventure, and it further fosters the notion for our guests to stay curious in their travels, opening their minds beyond a typical overnight stay and propel them to explore Bangkok as a destination with renewed desire to learn something new.”
Guests can now book their stay in The Curiosity Room by TED, starting at THB 15,960++, which includes a two-night stay for up to 4 guests, one dinner at Goji Kitchen + Bar, and a treat from the Siam Tea Room’s bakery. This offer is valid for stays taken from now to 15 November 2022, click here.
