AUGUST IS FAMILY MONTH AT FAIRMONT HOTEL VANCOUVER
Thursday, July 21, 2011
Vancouver, BC, July 21, 2011 – The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has always been a favourite with visiting families. Not only is the hotel a castle in the heart of Vancouver where children can reside like princes and princesses, the hotel regularly offers family packages, special menus and welcome amenities just for children. Friendly Canine Ambassadors, Mavis and Beau, also welcome kids of all ages and make them feel right at home with just one tail wag.
The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s “A Family Affair” package proves that families who travel together can save together – families that book one room at the “rate of the day” will receive 50% off a second room, making it easy for families to travel together with a little extra breathing room. Rates for this package start from $249 (first room, 50% off second room) and also include buffet breakfast for four in Griffins Restaurant as well as 25% off any other food and beverage within the hotel.
A Royal Welcome: Upon arrival, kids checking in during August will receive a bag of goodies complete with colouring book and crayons and during their stay, families can watch one complimentary in-room movie and order up a berry “mud pie” (compliments of the Chef and delivered to the room upon request). The hotel also has a board game menu for families to select from – Game of Life anyone?
Dining in the Castle: Recognizing that little ones have different appetites and taste buds, Griffins Restaurant has a “Kids Under 5 Eat Free” program along with offering 50% off for kids 12 and under (off the restaurant’s regular menu). Griffins also offers an appealing kid’s menu, including dishes like mini waffles for breakfast or macaroni and cheese followed by white and dark chocolate pudding for lunch or dinner.
Prince and Princess Tea: The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is renowned for traditional Afternoon Tea service, served daily in 900 West Lounge. “Prince and Princess Tea” introduces youngsters to this ritual in a fun way with tea fare designed just for tots: “Bubblegum Tea” (caffeine-free fruit tea dotted with real bubblegum pieces), finger sandwiches (PB&J included!), fresh strawberries and cream, a giant chocolate chip cookie, seasonal fruit tartlet and one of the hotel’s famous scones (of course). In addition, for each Prince or Princess Tea ordered during August, kids will receive a cuddly Mavis stuffed toy. Prince and Princess Tea is priced at $18 per child (12 years and under).
Vancouver’s landmark hotel, The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is a castle in the heart of the city. Historic yet timeless, modern yet classic, the hotel’s ambience, service and hospitality never fail to impress. Griffins Restaurant features exceptional dining, a decadent Sunday brunch and daily dessert buffet, while 900 West Lounge offers traditional afternoon tea and comes alive in the evening with live entertainment and perfectly crafted cocktails.
