BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- The Courtyard by Marriott hotel chain, based in Maryland, said its survey indicates 70 percent of U.S. couples don't vacation together as much as they'd like.
Courtyard by Marriott said the survey of 1,000 U.S. adults, which was conducted for the hotel by ECHO research, found 25 percent of respondents said they never travel as a couple for leisure purposes, while 50 percent said they travel together once or twice a year. Seventy percent of respondents said they do not vacation as a couple often enough.
"We all have so many responsibilities in our lives that making time for ourselves and a significant other all too often becomes our last priority," said Janis Milham, vice president and global brand manager for Courtyard by Marriott. "Making time for a weekend or overnight getaway to a fun destination can be rejuvenating, and there is no better time than now to find that perfect destination."
The survey was conducted June 5-8 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
