The creation of ‘Little Extras’ floors start a differential between their rooms which has typically not existed until now. The US properties have a choice of three different styles of Little Extra.
1. Little Extras Snack Bag: Guests receive in-room delivery on a display tray which includes one bag of chips, one candy and one healthy snack, along with two bottles of water, a piece of fruit, two drink vouchers and in-room Wi-Fi.
2. Little Extras Refreshment Center: Guests receive 24-hour access to a self-service refreshment center located on the Little Extras Floor(s) with unlimited snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as an in-room premium coffee brewer and Wi-Fi.
3. Little Extras Snack Pantry: Guests receive 24-hour access to a self-service area located on the Little Extras Floor(s) with unlimited snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as an in-room premium coffee brewer and Wi-Fi.
The rooms on the special floor can be booked at time of reservation.
