Marriott begins deploying new vending machine concept at Fairfield Inns
Marriott International Inc. announced the debut of a pilot program for contactless grab-and-go marketplaces and arrival kiosks at two Fairfield by Marriott hotels.
Both concepts build upon ongoing measures to boost traveler confidence while reinforcing the company’s Commitment to Clean initiative, Marriott said. The hotel’s contactless experience available through the Marriott Bonvoy app.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites Frederick and Fairfield Inn & Suites Arundel Mills BWI Airport, both located in Maryland, have introduced wall-to-wall kiosks that offer a centralized marketplace where guests can select snacks, light meals, beverages and sundries.
Fairfield Inn’s complimentary daily breakfast offering has been incorporated into the vending machine design. A selection of hot breakfast sandwiches, sweet indulgences, yogurt, cereal, and fruit every morning.
Specialty coffee and expanded a-la-carte items will also be available for purchase at the kiosks with contact-free Bluetooth payment. Individually packaged items are replenished throughout the day.
Marriott’s vending concept was design and built by No Brick LLC of Mamaroneck, NY, which specializes in automated F&B solutions for hotels.
