When planning an extended destination meeting, seminar, or conference, it can be difficult to determine the most appropriate location that will attract your targeted attendees. If you expect most attendees to come with their families in tow, it would be wise to pick your hotel venue based on the family-friendly amenities on-site.
Besides the location, hotel amenities could be a huge deciding factor. Luckily, it turns out that many hotel chains have properties and programs that cater to families and children. Check out these four brands that have long been a favorite for business but also off plenty of kid-approved amenities:
The Loews brand prides itself on family comfort and has developed a program in conjunction with parenting magazine: "Loews Loves Kids." From the family concierge to the Fisher-Price welcome amenities to supervised recreational programs, Loews offers the ultimate family getaway.
• The Ritz-Carlton
The Ritz-Carlton's famous "Ritz-Kids" program is sweeping the nation one hotel at a time. Amenities vary at each hotel, but most typically offer extending babysitting services, camp activities and more. The kids at Beaver Creek Mountain in Colorado enjoy the Youth Spa and a ski nanny while the kids in Orlando enjoy dive-in movies and golf lessons.
The Hilton's "Vacation Station" is perfect for entertaining the little ones. Use of the toy and games library is complimentary for kids, and supervised programs are available so the parents can enjoy a few hours of freedom.
Fifteen domestic Hyatt hotels participate in "Camp Hyatt." From roasting s'mores to boogie board lessons, this sounds more exciting than camp itself!
