A Haven for Rock Stars, The Sunset Marquis Also Likes Your Kids
The forever cool Sunset Marquis Hotel, tucked away beneath Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, has long been a retreat for actors and rock stars alike but we were thrilled to see that the hotel thinks kids rock too, thanks to their Kids Rock at Sunset Marquis kids packs.
Once you check-in to the hotel with your little one, there will be a black or pink nylon backpack waiting for them with a nametag attached. Inside, there's a black or pink t-shirt that says Kids Rock (sizes can be exchanged at the concierge desk), crayons, an "all-access" key and the Sunset Marquis Kids Passport which kids can color in, fill out a Hollywood-themed Mad Lib and also use for a scavenger hunt on the property. Totally cool.
Rates at the Sunset Marquis start at $395 next weekend for a deluxe suite with a king bed that also includes a separate seating area. Kids under the age of 12 stay free with parents if using existing beds in room. Be sure to tell the hotel before you arrive just who your little rock star-in-training is before you arrive.
Since the summer travel season has officially arrived, here are some other cute kids kits we've seen:
· The Peninsula Kids Academy backpacks at the Peninsula Chicago which come with coloring books and Peninsula teddy bears.
· The stylish black and white kids kit with matching black and white games at Claridge's in London.
· The adventure-themed Omni Sensational Kids pack from Omni Hotels which includes a map, crayons, a mini-magnifying glass and a small ball to toss around.
We'll be checking out more kids packs throughout the summer but let us know which ones you've seen on your travels!
