How we created the world’s first bubble hotel room to get people talking about laterooms.com online

Make it happen One of the UK’s leading online hotel room booking sites, LateRooms.com, asked Brazen to create a highly disruptive campaign to help turbo-charge brand chatter online.

What we did Introducing the Bubble Hotel Room in the heart of Bath!

We devised a delicious, digital-first, experiential PR campaign to put the Bubble in Bath – literally. Starting on National Bubble Bath Day, we ran a national news story revealing that Brits take just four baths a year – most of which are enjoyed during a hotel stay – generating widespread media coverage and online conversation including ITV’s Loose Women.

Then, we announced the launch of our ‘Bubble Hotel in Bath’. Sourcing an inflatable ‘bubble room’ and turning it into an all singing, all-dancing LateRooms.com branded hotel room, fully furnished in brand colours, launched in Bath, driving extensive next-day media coverage.

We secured an influential blogger to stay in the bubble who tweeted, posted on Facebook and Instagram and composed three blog articles all using our unique hashtag #LateRoomsBubble. And the public lit up social media with posts to win a stay in the Bubble Hotel at an event or occasion of their choice.
