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.
