Hotels Offer Deals for Vacationing Families

With families at their most budget-conscious this summer (we’re all saving up for iPads right?), parents are looking for any vacation deal they can get. And since leisure travel is rising in relation to dwindling business travel, hotels are looking to bait traveling families with a number of deals.

Hilton’s Hollywood Suites hotels are revamping their meal programs. Free dinner and drinks — including beer and wine — is available Monday through Thursday. Their breakfasts will also have more options, including breakfast sandwiches and omelets. Marriott is also stocking up on toddler care items, like fitted slip covers for cribs, bath toys, lotion, shampoo, and night lights to accommodate families with young children.

There are also the freebies. Marriott hotels, for example, will be giving away free activity books and Nickelodeon-branded bracelets. Omni Hotels have free goodie bags with Twizzlers, flashlights, bookmarks, and other knick knacks. Still, are these deals enough? Free dinner (with booze) is certainly a nice gesture, but who really wants to eat at the hotel anyway? And free goodie bags — please, the kids aren’t the one footing the hotel bill.

Strollerderby responds with their list of “Five Things Parents Say They Want Hotels to Offer Instead”:

  1. Connecting rooms.
  2. Separate floors dedicated to family travelers and business travelers.
  3. Stop charging full adult rates for teenagers.
  4. Adult swim at the pool.
  5. More free stuff — complimentary access to the room fridge please!

Any others to add to that list?

    How about:
    Free baby sitting for one night (if you stay for a certain number of nights)?

  • Carol

    Seriously, if you want to really save, rent a timeshare. People are practically giving away their weeks this year.

    Thanks for the thoughts you write about through this blog. In addition, several young women that become pregnant don’t even try to get medical care insurance because they dread they won’t qualify. Although some states today require that insurers give coverage no matter the pre-existing conditions. Fees on these guaranteed options are usually greater, but when thinking about the high cost of health care bills it may be a new safer route to take to protect one’s financial potential.

Many times however, this soft blur isn’t just what you had planned and can in many cases spoil a normally good photo, especially if you intend on enlarging the item.

    What I have observed in terms of computer system memory is always that there are features such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match up the specific features of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no os issues, replacing the memory literally normally takes under an hour. It’s among the easiest computer upgrade methods one can imagine. Thanks for giving your ideas.

I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do well to help fill in those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would definitely be fascinated.

    Virtually all of whatever you assert happens to be supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this subject goes. But at this time there is actually one particular position I am not really too comfortable with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the point, allow me see just what the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.
