The partnership with American Historic Inns was

one of the most successful professional relationships throughout my career. Providing such value-added, creative, targeted programs, American Historics Inn truly brings a unique marketing experience to any brand. The staff is incredible, execution is
turnkey and the sales results speak for themselves. What more could you
ask for? – Laura Tessinari, Partner, Ogilvy & Mather, New York

Soft Soap-Colgate

There have been only three rooms out of 63 rooms that the guests have
not tried the soap. (We check the wastebasket) – Shirley P., Mich.

We are getting rave reviews about the Soft Soap product. We place
samples in each bathroom and call attention to them when our guests
check in. Many have asked, Where can I get more? – Lorraine S., N.Y.

Our guests are LOVING the Soft Soap! We tried it too and thought it
wonderful! Oddly, we probably wouldn't have tried it had it been at
the store! – Karen S., Ill.

Minute Maid Orange Juice

We have used American Historic Inn promotions very successfully, and we
will change to Minute Maid due to this promo. – Innkeeper, Ukiah, Calif.

We are very pleased to be included in this promotion. The guide is well
done, the coupons are being well received, guests are excited about it and
so are we! Thank you for another win-win promo! – Innkeeper, Metamora, Ind.

I used to use Minute Maid country style frozen concentrate. Now I'm sold
on the premium orange juice, which I wouldn't have discovered without
this promotion. – Innkeeper, Sandwich, Mass.

Nestle Tasters Choice

We used to have people ask for tea; now they are having the Taster's
Choice coffees. -Innkeeper

We have coffee makers in most guest rooms but are finding that a lot of
guests would rather use the Taster's Choice instead of messing with brewing coffee. I am hearing great comments about the surprisingly wonderful
taste of this coffee. – Innkeeper

We have researchers from all over the world stay with us while they work
at the Presidential Library. We have

been very impressed with the comments. Guests who frowned on anything that was not from Starbucks are going
back for a second cup! And we had one researcher from Venezuela ask
where the nearest grocery store was so she could buy some to take some
back home. Juan Valdez eat your heart out!!! – Innkeeper


The sampling made a great hit in the restaurant restrooms and well as the
guest rooms. My wife is hooked. -Innkeeper, St. Francisville, La.

Most in-room samples were used/taken. The samples in the guest hall
basket had to be replenished daily, too! Ah, the sweet smell of a successful promotion! -Innkeeper, Metamora, Ind.

The guests loved the idea of trying out a new item in this way, they
didn't have to buy anything and take the chance of not liking it. Most said
the smell was a wonderful fresh outdoor fragrance. – Innkeeper, Welches, Ore.

Tom's Of Maine Toothpaste

The toothpaste sampling has by far out-solicited more favorable comments
from guests than any other sampling program in which we have been
involved. There hasn't been a single guest who at check-out hasn't commented
on the superior quality of Toms toothpaste. I personally feel this
sampling program will garner many loyal consumers for Toms of Maine. – Innkeeper, Chesterton, Ind.

Our guests really appreciate the samples and so far there has been good feedback of the product. We have people now wanting to find it in stores. – Innkeeper, Spring Lake, N.J.

We have been providing our guests with the samples and brochures in our bathroom package, and I have to tell you 95% are thrilled and ask where
they can buy it. – Innkeeper, Stowe, Vt.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in Tom's Toothpaste promo.
Alot of my guests used it and went to the nearest Trader Joe's to have
some more on hand for themselves. – Innkeeper, San Rafael, Calif.

We pride ourselves on offering upscale amenities and Toms of Maine fits
in with that. Several guests have commented to me on how we have
thought of everything, right down to the Toms of Maine toothpaste. It
definitely impresses the guests. – Innkeeper, Chadds Ford, Penn.
