When corporate event guests are given the opportunity to upgrade and bring spouses and children on incentive trips and executive retreats, it's the little things that and make a big difference. For sleeping arrangements, obvious choices are:
- roll-away beds
- connecting rooms with 2 beds in the adjoining room
- regular hotel rooms or 1 bedroom suites with pullout sofa beds
- 2 or 3 bedroom choices
To kick thing up a notch, add a touch of fun by selecting accommodations with creative sleeping arrangements for children.
Bunk beds always add a sense of fun and adventure at home or abroad. They can be found at Beaches Turks and Caicos (pictured). Here is what some excited children and their mother have to say about their room.
Kalahari Resorts in the Pocono Mountains, Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort, and in the Junior Suites at Hilton Sandestin Beach Resort & Spa in Destin, Florida.
The Pirate Room with bunk beds and a treasure chest at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, California really pulls out all the stops with creative theming. Some rooms have bunk beds and trundles. Yo Ho, Matey!
Tundle beds (also known as captain's beds) have an extra bed that pulls out at night and pushes in during the day to save space. Beaches Ocho Rios is famous for its split level family rooms with trundle beds.
You'll also find trundle beds in rooms at the Italian Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos, the Riverside rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Resort, and at Black Bear Lodge in New Hampshire.
Murphy beds get pushed up into the wall for storage during the day. Black Bear Lodge in New Hampshire has them and so do Omni Cancun Resorts and Villas and Wyndham Reef Resort in Grand Cayman.
We reported on the In-Room Camping at Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain in Arizona a while back. A quick search pulled up hotels and resorts offering this option country-wide. It's also available at Ritz-Carlton Orlando and Grande Lakes Houstonian Hotel and Spa in Texas.
The classic movie Heidi starring Shirley Temple showed just how much fun sleeping in a loft can be. Loft rooms are available at Baoase Luxury Resort in Curacao.
The Hidden Ridge Resort in Banff offers them. One- and two-bedroom suites with lofts are available at Rocky Crest Golf Resort in the Muskokas (Ontario, Canada).
For children, there is nothing more fun than a treehouse. Treehaus Luxury Suites are available at Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort in New Branfels, Texas. Treehouse at Adventure Suites – North Conway, New Hampshire Wolf Den Suite features sleeping quarters that look just like real log cabins.
