Sampling Program Comments

"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. (I 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 Taster's 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

Perfume/Cologne Fragrance

"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.
