ritztravelingmomIf you live in Atlanta or plan to visit in the upcoming months, the Ritz Carlton Buckhead has a wonderful package you will want to take advantage of.  The package includes family-friendly activities that are conducive to every member of the family such as dive-in movies at the pool, a fun-filled scavenger hunt, free ice-cream at all the restaurants, and best of all, a bit of luxury and pampering for the parents.

The Ritz really knows how to cater to families. First of all, they call kids V.I.K.’s. (Very Important Kids).  They think that families don’t have to give up the pampered treatment they can offer when they decide to not drive far for a vacation.  From the moment you enter the hotel, the staff offers you bottled water and they are completely attentive to your every need during your stay.  The first thing they do to welcome kids is give them a wrist band to wear as a V.I.K., promising free ice-cream in any restaurant, as well as a stuffed animal and a scavenger hunt form.  The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the hotel’s facilities are top-notch.  On top of that, it’s luxurious.  The entire hotel is decorated with classic paintings, antique furniture, marble floors and fresh flowers.  The beds are lush, the bath is made of marble, the linens are Italian, the beds are made of feather and the pillows are goose-down, there are terry robes hanging on the bathroom door, there are flat screen TVs, internet access, free newspapers in the morning and there is a also an evening turn-down.

On top of it all, the hotel’s facilities offer kids opportunities both of exercise and explore.  The swimming pool is very child-friendly, never getting ritzpool
too deep in any part of the pool, and the hot tub is fine for the entire family.  The free ice-cream is actually a sundae, and kids can redeem that offer anytime.  They’ll love the scavenger hunt, which takes them on a tour of the hotel, while collecting stamps and gifts along the way.  They’ll also love breakfast in bed (who doesn’t?) and the kid’s meals that are offered in the hotel’s restaurants.

  • Overnight deluxe accomodations.
