Family "Travel in Style" Products & Peninsula Hotel Tips

As a family who plans on traveling, I'm a firm believer that family travel doesn't have to be hard. There's so many products designed to help families enjoy their outings without fuss.

Family Travel in Style

At a recent "Travel in Style" Event hosted by Trumpeting Media at The Peninsula Hotel’s Bar at Fives, I was able to preview a few products from the sponsors of the event :
  • Baby Cargo’s stylish and affordable ultra lightweight strollers series include the 100, 200 and 300. All strollers weigh under 15 pounds, fold easily and are super compact.
  • Citrus Lane is a subscription e-commerce company focused on getting healthy, useful and delightful products to young families.
  • The Peninsula Hotel is a Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond rated property that provides a variety of family-friendly amenities for traveling families for a luxurious and stress-free stay.

Other family friendly travel service and products I learned about included
  • BubbleBum is the first inflatable booster seat. BubbleBum is the perfect solution for family car trips and flyins with car rentals.
  • Buggyguard anti theft stroller locks can be used to secure your child’s stroller anywhere you need to “park” it. Buggyguard locks are small and lightweight and give parents peace of mind when traveling.
  • Cleanwell Disinfectant To-Go Wipes are perfectly sized for parents on the go. They kill 99% of cold and virus germs botanically.
  • Hold On Handles is the first stroller accessory and walking rope to help teach 1-3 children to stay within arm’s reach. A safety must-have when traveling through a busy airport or street.

    Now that you know a few products that help while traveling, here are a few tips to help when planning with a hotel courtesy of The Peninsula Hotel
    • Sleeping Arrangements
    Before you travel, contact your hotel’s guest relations department to determine what items they have in-house to ensure a restful night’s sleep for your baby (and you!). Most hotels will provide a portable crib or pack-and-play, along with coordinating linens. The Peninsula New York provides full-size cribs and toddler beds complete with specialty linens. Baby monitors, soothing sleep sounds devices and baby reading books are also available upon request.
    • Baby Gear Essentials – Lighten Your Load
    Reduce the amount of gear you pack for your child by making use the hotel’s baby amenities! Most hotels will offer an array of items, from bottle warmers to full-size strollers – the important point is to call ahead and find out what’s available and reserve for your stay. At The Peninsula New York, guests have baby gear at their disposal including:
    1. Strollers and car seats
    2. Crib with all bumpers, bed rails
    3. Baby tubs, hypoallergenic baby bath products, hooded towel
    • Keep Your Baby Well Fed On The Road
    Be sure to bring enough formula or food to get you to the hotel and back home. Contact the concierge at the hotel in advance of your visit and ask them to find out which pharmacies or grocery stores carry your formula – that way you can buy what you need once you arrive rather than packing. The Peninsula can even arrange for one of our Page’s to run to the store and purchase what you need in advance of your stay.
    • Keep Your Hotel Informed!
    The most important step you can take to ensure a smooth hotel stay with your baby is to inform the hotel in advance. At The Peninsula New York, baby proofing your hotel room is a complimentary amenity that can be accomplished before your family checks in. Also, inform the hotel of any allergies your baby/child may have so the kitchen can make proper adjustments. While the hotel cannot dispense medicine, The Peninsula New York does have access to 24-hour pharmacies and a Page can be sent to pick up any drug store order 24 hours a day.
    • Utilize the Concierge
    The concierge can be a traveling family’s best friend! Let the concierge team customize a special itinerary for children, from kid-friendly parks and playgrounds to fun restaurants, concierges truly are the key to a successful visit to any city. In addition, they're able to share insider knowledge on the best babysitters, local boutiques, children’s museums and shows.

    Please Note: I received a gift bag after the event. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
