Making Your Hotel More Family-Friendly

Making Your Hotel More Family-Friendly

Families contribute a good amount to hotel profits, especially since more and more families have been booking vacations in the past few years. To take advantage of this travel trend, it’s a good idea to take some measures to make your hotel more family-friendly. Today in the Southeast International Hotel Brokers blog, we’ll give you some tips for making your hotel a better destination for families.

Why Family-Friendly?

As we mentioned, more families are traveling and willing to spend money on luxury vacations for them and their children. Families tend to spend a good amount of money, so catering to their needs can definitely help to increase your revenue. Of course, catering to families doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your services for other demographics. The changes we’ll suggest are easy enough to implement without disrupting your typical services.

Ways to Make a Hotel More Family-Friendly

Here are some of the best ways to make a hotel more family-friendly:

Family Rates

Unfortunately, you won’t be the only hotel in your area trying to bring in more business from families. You’ll need competitive family rates. When someone books a certain amount of people for a room, give them a family rate.

Family-Friendly Rooms

It’s also a good idea to make your rooms easy for families to stay in. Sometimes families with little children will need two or more kids to stay in the room with them. Make sure you provide them with things like rollaway beds if they have little ones.

Family-Friendly Food Options

If you have a hotel restaurant, it’s easy to incorporate some kid-friendly meals like chicken tenders and grilled cheese sandwiches into your menu. Also, make sure you add some kid-friendly options to your room service menu so the kids can enjoy the room service experience too.


If your hotel has a pool, it might be a good idea to put in a kiddie pool, or at least make sure you have a very shallow end they can play in.

Sundries Store

If your hotel has a store that sells things like toothpaste, soap, snacks, and other sundries, include some items geared toward families too. For instance, kid-friendly snacks, diapers, kids toothpaste, and kids sunscreen would be some good additions.
