Hotels For Kids: Extraordinary Hotel Experiences To Make Kids Happy

A free box of crayons may never seem cool again as hotel freebies for kids. A lot of hotels give children a goodie bag, a coloring book, or maybe even a small teddy bear as a token welcome gift. But there are those that take kids’ amenities to a whole new level.

From, here are three hotels that give your kids a fabulously over-the-top extreme experience:

The Peninsula Chicago

The royal Princess for a Day experience offered by the Peninsula Chicago technically lasts for just 24 hours, but having people treat you like royalty, complete with servants and guests curtsying for you, can have long-lasting effects.

The “staff of attendants” at the Peninsula Chicago can give your little princesses royal treatment, complete with pampering that includes hair, makeup, and nail services, as well as fitting them for a gown and tiara. Activities for the experience include an Afternoon Tea, a ride on a horse-drawn, pumpkin-shaped carriage, and a welcome-back party that features a glass-slipper-fitting with a prince.

The Plaza Hotel, New York

This famed Manhattan building is more famous for its Eloiuse suite, but parents who are staying with their kids can book the Plaza’s Tower Suite and have it decorated a la medieval castle. The suite can be stocked with knight-themed costumes, toys, books, and other materials. An arranged picnic at Belvedere Castle in Central Park is also part of the package.

Trump Hotel Soho, New York City

The Trump Hotel’s Young Entrepreneur program allows kids ages 3 to 17 to vacation like a CEO. It includes personalized business cards, access to mini-power events, a class where kids can hone their social and networking skills, and even a monogrammed child-sized robe—giving your young ones the experience of being a titan of industry.
