When traveling with children, one of the most important things you think about is how to keep them entertained throughout the trip – from the car or plane ride to your destination to the evenings you spend at your hotel. We know that a hotel’s amenities can make the difference between excited kids and disappointed ones. Our everyday amenities are not only enjoyable for the adults who stay at our hotels, but for our younger guests as well.

One of the first things that makes a hotel stay special for kids is getting to splash around in the hotel pool, whether it’s inside on a cold day or outside in the sun. Many of our Country Inns & Suites properties include either an indoor or outdoor pool for our guests to enjoy. While the kids are swimming and playing, you can relax in a nearby lounge chair or join them for even more fun!

Once the kids have tired themselves out in the pool, it’s time to relax and wind down for the evening. What better way to end the night than by reading a great book? We love books, and we know many kids do too, so all of our Country Inns & Suites hotels include a Read It & Return Lending LibrarySM in the lobby.  From children’s books to adult bestsellers, each of our libraries offers a variety of books that our guests can borrow at their leisure. You don’t have to worry about checking a book out, and can return it at any time to any Country Inns & Suites location.

One of our favorite amenities that we offer is the popular Be Our Guest Breakfast. Getting yourselves and your kids ready for the day can be hectic enough without having to find a place to eat breakfast. With our daily complimentary breakfast, you don’t even have to change out of your pajamas to enjoy a great first meal! We offer everyday breakfast favorites such as yogurt, cereal, and fresh fruit, along with a menu of hot items that rotates each day and varies by location. Enjoy french toast one morning, build-your-own omelets the next, and waffles the day after that! Your kids will be excited to fill their own plates with their favorite items and you’ll be happy that they’re starting their day off right without even leaving the hotel.

We know that a sweet treat can make the day better, especially for our younger guests. That’s why we offer freshly-baked cookies in our lobby. Stop by the front desk and grab one before you head out for the day, or enjoy one – or three, we won’t judge! – before you and your family turn in for the night.

At the end of the day, we want to make sure all of our guests leave with a smile on their faces, and we think that our kid-friendly amenities help do just that!
