A Woman’s Nation (AWN), together with Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR), announced today that Marriott International will be the first partner in AWN’s The Envelope Please initiative.
It is designed to encourage and enable hotel guests to express their gratitude by leaving tips and notes of thanks for hotel room attendants in designated envelopes provided in hotel rooms.
According to Marriott, hotel room attendants often go unnoticed, as they silently care for the millions of travelers who are on the road at any given time.

Because hotel guests do not always see or interact with room attendants, their hard work is many times overlooked when it comes to tipping. The Envelope Please makes leaving them a gratuity simple and secure.
Beginning this week, Marriott International will place signature envelopes in more than 160,000 guest rooms at participating Marriott-managed hotels in the U.S. and Canada, making it easy for guests to express their gratitude and leave a voluntary gratuity for their room attendants.
Marriott has also invited its franchise hotels to participate in this initiative.
