New Marriott Bed Debuts in Fullerton

Over 6,000 Bed Linens Donated to Local United Way

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire/ — The Fullerton Marriott announced today the completion of its $3 million guest room renovation. As one of many hotels undergoing makeovers to unveil the new look and feel of Marriott, it now features the recently announced and customer-praised new Marriott bed.

The white-on-white plush bedding consists of an 11-inch mattress, featherbed topper, 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, a down blanket, six down pillows, and a colorful bed scarf.

“We are very excited to have the new Marriott bed,” said Norm Santos, general manager, Fullerton Marriott. “More importantly, it gave us the perfect opportunity to support our local United Way.”

Over 6,000 bed linens were donated to the Orange County chapter of the United Way — 1,944 flat sheets, 1,716 pillow cases and over 600 duvet covers and bed skirts. Linens are used in a variety of ways, including arts and crafts such as painting, banners and stuffing for pillows and everyday uses from laundry bags and drapes to coverings for stored items. They are also often reinvented into picnic blankets and sacks for relay races for games and outdoor activities.

The new look and feel of Marriott incorporates the latest in design, technology, culinary expertise, service and comfort. Guests will begin to experience it across all brands this year.

The Fullerton Marriott is located at 2701 E. Nutwood Avenue on the campus of California State University in North Orange County and features 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Nearby attractions include Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm.
