More and more luxury hotels are catering amenities to children in an effort to increase business.
With the rise in couples electing to have children later in life when they have more money to travel and Baby Boomers taking their children and grandchildren on trips, more kids are showing up at luxury hotels.
On that note, Rosewood Hotels have instituted a “Little Picassos” program to teach children about art. The chain has also started “Rose Buds” which helps to educate young children during their stay.
Hyatt Hotels has started a new children’s menu that keeps a luxury dining feel with kid-friendly tastes.
Other hotels are recognizing the benefit of catering to child guests as well. Ritz-Carlton offers a children’s spa package and Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is training employees to recognize which children will need a high chair or enjoy a stuffed animal.
