Have you stayed in a super cool hotel room your kids loved?
We have not stayed in very many hotels with special themed rooms other than at Great Wolf Lodge. Going into next year we are hoping to stay in some of these unique rooms found around the world. Here are 15 cool hotel rooms for kids we are hoping to stay in next year.
15 Cool Hotel Rooms for Kids
Inspired by the famous pineapple under the sea, famed home to SpongeBob SquarePants, this sumptuous one-of-a-kind villa is the signature dwelling at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana – the world’s first and only Pineapple.
With 2,292 square feet of incredible indoor and outdoor living areas, including a garden, patio, signature infinity pool, and private butler caters to your every whim, the 2 bedroom / 3 bath villa is a palatial paradise in the Dominican Republic.
Rates at the Pineapple start at $3,800 per night, including the Gourmet Inclusive Experience of all gourmet meals served a la carte, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, 24-hour room service and full-service concierge. Granted, at that price we will never stay here!
Outrageous pink and black décor by Betsy Johnson adorns the walls of the 625 sq. ft. suite on the “tippy-top floor” of the Plaza Hotel.
Named for The Plaza’s famous resident in Kay Thompson’s Eloise books, the room features everything Eloise. From Eloise-themed tea for two at The Palm Court to Eloise-approved books and toys, kids will be absolutely delighted by the over-the-top suite that offers guest a day in the life of the precocious little heroine.
And yes, it is expensive to stay here.
Kids are immediately transported to space in this out-of-this-world treehouse in the woods. Fashioned as a UFO, the intergalactic suite is built for two adults and three children, with a living room, in-room bathroom, and two large separate beds. 1..2..3…ready for takeoff to every child’s dream!
Immerse your child in magic and marvel in The Wizard Chamber, created for Harry Potter aficionados in London. Concealed behind a bookcase door, the Gothic décor evokes the magical style of Hogwarts lodgings. Each room features faux castle details such as stained glass windows, stone walls, cauldrons, four-poster beds hung with velvet curtains, and an abundance of other curious artifacts.
Legoland Beach Retreat in Winter Haven, Florida
At the Legoland Beach Retreat, guests have the opportunity of staying in their own beach-themed bungalow decorated with whimsical LEGO®décor inside and out. Designed to look like it’s made of giant Lego bricks, each bungalow room can sleep up to five people with one king-sized bed for parents and a small nook that has bunk beds for the kids.
In addition, each bungalow is centered around an expansive outdoor play area, all within view of the bungalow’s shaded patios, where parents can put their feet up, kick back, and relax while the kids play.
Located just outside of Quebec City, Quebec is one of the coolest kid hotel rooms available according to my friend Sarah. As long as you are okay with sleeping in a -3 to -5 degree room. In past years, the Hotel De Glace won the hearts of little kids across the world with their Frozen suite. The animators of the film actually stayed at the hotel when drawing up plans for Elsa’s ice castle.
Other incredible themed suites have included The Great Gatsby and the iconic Canadian Hockey Suite. The hotel melts away each year and so with each Winter comes a brand new selection of suites.
Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando has Despicable Me suites. We stayed at a Universal hotel for the first time, but we stayed over at Cabana Bay where the rooms were 1950’s throwback rooms. The next time we are at Universal we plan to stay in one of these despicable me rooms. They look awesome!
The Palms Pink Suite
Hot Pink Suite at The Palms in Las Vegas. I love Vegas and I take my kids there fairly often. One of these days we are going to stay in this hot pink suite! Granted, I typically would not recommend staying here with the kids. The Palms would be better for a girl’s trip. Designed by the famous “Happy Chic” designer Jonathan Adler, this 2,350-square-foot suite is the ultimate bachelorette party pad. The suite’s dreamy décor features corseted, lace-up chairs, custom art, and terrazzo bubble floors.
Space-themed rooms in Edmonton, Canada. One of my friends stayed here a while back and it looked awesome! The room has one queen bed and capsule bunk beds for the kids. Plus, there is a two-person Jacuzzi. They have an assortment of other themed rooms including a Hollywood theme and Arabian themed.
This is a Hobbit-themed house. This Hobbit House offers visitors an interesting underground lodging experience full of imagination. Inside the house isn’t really that cool, but the outside is neat.
This Hilton has an over the top Barbie suite. The Barbie-themed room includes a collection of rare Barbie dolls from the past six decades as well as a life-sized DreamCamper in which children can play dress-up and spend the night. As for adults, the adult room leverages more of a nostalgic vibe and is decorated with collector-related elements. There’s a pink food menu too, which includes heart-shaped pizzas, gnocchi in pink sauce, red velvet treats, and strawberry ice cream at the hotel’s restaurant, MADERA. The Barbie Room experience will start at $189 per night on weekdays and $229 per night on weekends.
The Grand Mirage Resort in Bali has some interesting rooms that kids will like, including rooms with bunk beds and themed rooms like this girl’s room. For the kids, Grand Mirage Bali Resort features kids mini water park, pool slides, indoor playground, kids club, kids e-lounge, foam party and many more.
Just 15 minutes outside of Waco, TX you will find a Blue Hills Ranch, a 150-acre resort with green rolling hills, lakes, giraffes, zebras, otters, kangaroos, and more. Here you can rent one of their themed cabins, like the Hook cabin or the Kraken cabin pictured here. Both the animal encounters and the cabins have to be booked well in advance.
Iniala Beach House
Iniala Beach House in Takua Thung, Thailand has some seriously cool rooms for those traveling with kids. You cannot book the room shown, but your kids can stay in it. It’s the kid’s club which is a kid’s hotel and should they want to they can stay the night.
Graduate New York “Big” Suite
Located on the sixth floor of Graduate New York, the Loft Suite has been fully transformed into a toy-filled suite just as Tom Hanks’ character, Josh Baskin does to his NYC apartment in the film. Sleeping up to six guests, making for the perfect family getaway, The Loft Suite provides iconic childhood toys and games complete with a real Zoltar machine and themed bunk beds. A life-sized floor piano and mini trampoline are also included, and the most nostalgic part? Guests can watch Big on an old TV via VHS.
This list could keep going. We’ve stayed at Aulani in Oahu and we all love it. The rooms were not themed out, but they were nice and we enjoyed it. Same for a hotel in Portland, Riverplace. It was not themed but is one of our favorite places I’ve ever stayed in.
