Family-Friendly Hotels with First-Rate Kids’ Programs

Keep Your Active Kids Busy on Vacay

You could pick any hotel for your family vacation, but the best option is when you find a place that goes out of its way to make children feel extra special. And it’s also the perfect way to make sure you get some down time. For your peace of mind, Vacation decided to round up some of our favorite hotels with amazing kids’ programs. Find out how these eight hotels for families – and our network of travel agents – go out of their way to customize an unforgettable family vacation for you and your kids.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler (Whistler, British Columbia)

The Fairmont offers week-long kids’ camps throughout the ski season at three mountain faces, but the only one you need to know about is the one at Blackcomb Base. Why? Because it’s just a two-minute walk from the resort. Kids are assigned to one of three age groups and have the same instructor all week. Enroll your child in Fairmont’s 90-minute, three-days-a-week RU Ready program, designed to improve kids’ agility skills, hand-eye coordination and balance. The weeklong camp starts at $529.
