While many households hate winter, others just can’t get over the thrilling adventures it brings. Some even plan a skiing vacation in Steamboat Springs, where over 165 inches of snow covers the mountain slopes each year. It becomes even more exciting when the family gets to stay in a hotel where everything is just right for their needs. An article in WhatToExpect.com provides simple tips on choosing a family-friendly hotel or resort.
“Whether it’s a sweeping suite or a tiny room, make sure the accommodations you choose fit your family’s needs. If there’s no kitchenette, can you rent a mini-fridge to store your breast milk or formula, snacks, and drinks (or a mini-bar you can empty and fill up with your own, more appropriate and less-expensive selections)? A bathtub, so you won’t have to try rinsing sand off a squirmy tot in the shower? Also, unless you plan on going to bed at 7 p.m. when your child does, make sure there’s a balcony, an alcove, or best of all, another room where you and your partner can hang out without waking up your sleeping beauty.”
