Families used to have to resort to the budget hotels and motels with characters on the walls and chicken fingers on the menu when they traveled. Sure, there may be one Madeleine-esque kid in a posh hotel, but in the past that was probably it. Now, however, is a different story.
Families are traveling and do not want to lower their standard of living while doing it. And some of the most luxurious hotels across the country are cashing in on this idea and openly cater to families. Kids are not only welcome at these three top resorts, they are encouraged, celebrated, and entertained.
Check out the amenities at these three old school resorts with very "new school" offerings:
The Tides Inn, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia
Opened more than 65 years ago, The Tides Inn has become well known for being a great site for multi-generations. They even have a Family Reunion Specialist to help plan reunions and family get-togethers on a grand scale.
The resort evokes Old South charm by greeting guests with genuine smiles, complimentary cookies and fresh squeezed lemonade upon arrival. There are outdoor activities for the whole family at The Tides Inn which include everything from sailing lessons, complimentary bike rides and 18 holes of golf.
And if the days are fun, try hanging out at the fire pit by night for complimentary s’mores. They are even served on silver platters!
Room prices at the Tides Inn vary, but current family packages start at $379 per night.
The Breakers Palm Beach, Palm Beach Florida
The Breakers Palm Beach is a 540-room Italian-Renaissance style resort located in the heart of Palm Beach, Florida.
It is truly elegant and one of America’s most legendary resort destinations, with 140 acres of prime oceanfront property. Founded in 1896, The Breakers has retained the elegance of the past but now is also thoroughly updated with every convenience a modern family expects.
