What Makes a Hotel Family Friendly

Kids, dogs, cats, Mom and Dad – will we all fit and be comfy? Thoughtful hotel amenities should help ensure that a  family vacation is a vacation. An all-suite hotel is usually the best answer for families, as they offer both space and multiple room configurations to provide the most opportunities for relaxation. Will it be safe and convenient to access? Families comprised of all ages including grandparents and babies need the assurance that a hotel in a new place is safe, while also not making it too difficult to get to city attractions. So if a hotel location feels “almost like home” with a residential vibe, while being just meters from downtown, plus underground parking, that is a great combination for families.

We feel like we’ve got exactly what you’re looking for for your family at The Parkside Hotel & Spa. Check out some key aspects of our family-friendly property, which is one of the best hotels for families in Victoria, B.C.

Easy Access to Local Attractions

While you will want to enjoy all that your hotel has to offer, you will look to get out and about in the rest of Victoria. The Parkside is located close to those attractions and activities that every family plans to experience while in town. Here at The Parkside, we are within close proximity of the Royal BC Museum IMAX, Beacon Hill Children’s Farm, and the Victoria Bug Zoo. All of these are excellent activities for families with children of all ages. 

In-Room Laundry Services

The convenience of doing your own laundry.  Whether you have infants or teenagers, your kids go through a lot of outfit changes in a single day. Tack on the sun and surf that attracts plenty of sand and grime and you’ll need to do laundry soon and often. Not staying in a hotel that offers in-room laundry services is a real hassle. Fear not! Here at The Parkside Hotel & Spa our rooms include washer/dryer units.

Full-Size Kitchens

The convenience of a full size kitchen can’t be understated for a family on vacation. Save time, save money, and serve up those special foods you can’t find easily. You have everything you need to serve up breakfast, lunch, and dinner – not to mention those midnight snacks that you crave. At The Parkside, we specialize in making family accommodations that really work. By giving you either a gourmet kitchenette or a full-size kitchen with all of the kitchen equipment you need (like, even a blender) right in your suite, you can truly feel right at home. 

In-Room Dining

Not feeling like cooking while on vacation? That’s ok, too! Everyone deserves to take a break, especially on vacation. Plus, vacations mean relaxing and not having to “dress up” for every meal. Look for a hotel that provides you with the option of room service to make it easy to feed your family without stress.

At The Parkside, we have our in-house breakfast options that are served in your room. Eat out on the balcony for an extra special early bird treat, while your kids sleep in. The menu includes a healthy yogurt and berry parfait, homemade muesli, avocado toast, and the hardy Parkside Breakfast Platter. Located right across from the front desk is Tre Fantastico. Here you can eat in or take out to your room from their full menu that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals.

Swimming Pool

You have kids. We have a 25-meter pool. Enough said.
