Culligan has partnered with Extended Stay America to offer free filtered water in guest rooms at select hotel properties in the U.S.

Travelers often bring water to their hotel rooms in single-use plastic bottles to avoid paying a premium for bottled water offered in the mini-fridge or hotel convenience stores. Now Extended Stay America guests can take advantage of another option: fresh, filtered water, available free from the kitchen faucet in their rooms.

The installation of Culligan water filters on kitchen taps in hotel rooms began in March 2012 with Extended Stay America's California properties; the filters are being added to additional rooms across the country throughout 2013 as the hotel chain completes planned renovations on many U.S. properties. From a sustainability standpoint, Extended Stay America and Culligan are committed to providing this environmentally friendly amenity for guests, keeping single-use plastic water bottles out of landfills.

Extended Stay America properties will feature the Culligan FM-25 faucet-mount filter. The unit is compact and mounted on the kitchen faucet. The filter switches easily from unfiltered to filtered water, and produces better-tasting water for drinking and cooking.

"We are committed to providing our guests a consistently fresh and clean experience, and convenient, high-quality amenities at an affordable price," said Tom Seddon, chief marketing officer for Extended Stay America.
