It feels like the Christmas holidays have only just ended and already, it’s time to think about how you’ll spend your Easter. If you’re craving a getaway – but don’t want to actually *get away* – look no further than Brisbane Marriott Hotel.

We were lucky enough to experience their M Passport Family Package and let us tell you, it’s a game changer. With a scavenger hunt, kids gift pack and free meals for children under 12, Brisbane Marriott Hotel is making it easier than ever to keep the family engaged and entertained.

The package includes a kid’s welcome gift pack, children’s amenity, $30 food and beverage credit per night and an early check-in and late check-out*. You’ll also get breakfast for two adults, with kids under 12 dining for free at all mealtimes** at Brisbane Marriott’s Motion Dining Restaurant.

Not only that, but the M Passport package also gives children aged three to 13 their very own M Passport Wallet, which contains an M Passport Activity Map that will help them locate a range of fun activities and local destinations in the surrounding area. Once an activity is completed, your child will receive an achievement stamp – each stamp entitles them to a reward, e.g. a healthy and delicious treat.

As part of Marriott Hotels’ ethos of inspiring brilliance in their guests, M Passport is designed to help even the littlest travellers enjoy a range of activities not just physically, but intellectually and emotionally, too. For parents, this means peace of mind knowing your children are having a blast during their stay. 

When it comes to the hotel itself, Brisbane Marriott ensures every room is a great room. Expect views of either the Brisbane River, Story Bridge or the twinkling city skyline, the option to enjoy executive level rooms with complimentary food and beverage service in the executive lounge, plus a heated, undercover pool promising hours of fun whatever the weather.

Tips for your stay-cay from the haven team:

  1. enjoy the peace (and views) of the Executive Lounge (we loved reading the Sunday Mail cover to cover)
  2. the rubber duck in the passport pack makes for a fun pool toy for the kids (pack that when you go to the pool)
  3. dress up in the lush bathrobes (they make for some fun family photos too in your hotel room)
  4. go on and indulge in some room service (it’s what we parents dream of … no cooking and no dishes)
  5. the playground at Howard Smith Wharves is great fun for the kids while you enjoy a cold one and a city view

Find Brisbane Marriott in a prime CBD location in the centre of the creative and cultural hub of the city. Brisbane’s best dining and entertainment precincts, Howard Smith Wharves and Petrie Bight, are just a short stroll away. The vibrant nightlife of Fortitude Valley, the best of international and national retail in the Queen Street Mall and the cultural offerings of Southbank are all close by.

Your Easter school holidays are well and truly sorted.
