More than 300 Le Meridien and Westin Hotels and Resorts will have special kids amenities and other amenities to appeal to family travelers, according to a December 9, 2015 release. Kids Club play spaces and special programs like “The Universal Language of Play” encourage children to play freely, excluding boundaries created by language and other differences. The play spaces focus on what children have in common, the necessity to feel well, work well, play well, eat well, move well, and sleep well.
The space incorporates environmental elements in the design, as well. The children are encouraged to have hands-on to learn about music, art, nature and cuisine through built-in experiences in the Kids Clubs. To celebrate the focus on family programs, Westin and Le Meridien will have family activities and workshops like crafts, language lessons, and local cultural awareness lessons in destinations around the world.
The hotels have a new global family package that includes free meals for children, free kids club access and discounted second rooms or the choice to book a connecting room where they are available.
