BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott ExecuStay, a leader in extended-stay, furnished apartments, is sharing the ups and downs of relocating to a new city through the launch of its Discover ExecuStay™ blog featuring Marriott public relations executive Catherine "Cat" Leitner as she moves to her new home of New York City. The blog, along with the brand's Facebook page, is an opportunity for ExecuStay to connect and engage with extended-stay travelers.
Through the end of the year, Cat will serve as ExecuStay's first guest blogger, sharing posts that take readers along on her journey to discover what it's like to relocate to a new city. She'll find comfort through the chaos by staying at Marriott ExecuStay furnished apartments in New York City until she finds a permanent residence.
"The biggest challenge for anyone relocating to a new city is determining the neighborhood where they want to put down roots," said Adam Sherer, Marriott ExecuStay brand vice president. "As with Cat, when someone relocates for work, there typically isn't enough time to really get to know the area before they have to make a major decision. ExecuStay offers furnished apartment leases for as little as 30 days, so Cat can take a bit more time finding a place to live."
Ongoing, the blog will share travel information, tips and news for extended-stay travelers to make the best of their time away from home. It will also feature posts from guests who want to share their travel stories. Fans can follow Cat's story on the Discover ExecuStay blog and Facebook pages.
