There are plenty of things that you need to think about when you're booking a hotel for a trip with your family. If you're travelling with younger children, one thing you shouldn't forget to look for is a hotel that has its own restaurant. It's easy to just assume that one will be available, but many hotels, particularly those in larger cities, do not provide a restaurant.
Here are just three reasons why having a restaurant should be considered a vital factor when you're travelling with younger children.
1. Reduced Costs
For most families, cost is going to be a significant factor. After all, it's not like your kids are going to have full-time jobs and incomes to let them pay their share! Since keeping costs down is such a concern, it only makes sense to look for a hotel with a restaurant included. You'll generally find that some meals are included, or that you can pick an all-inclusive deal that will work out far cheaper than eating at different establishments each night. This doesn't just help lower your costs – it lets you know how much you'll be spending on meals, providing the opportunity to work out your budget in advance.
2. More Convenient
When you're going travelling with your kids, convenience really matters. After having been out sightseeing all day, the last thing that you're going to want to do is traipse around looking for a place to eat, and your kids probably won't be too keen either. It's a lot more convenient to simply take the elevator down to your hotels restaurant. Of course, you always have the option of heading elsewhere if there's somewhere else you really want to try, but you won't feel the need to do so every night.
3. Child-Friendly Meals
If you're staying at a child-friendly hotel, it's likely that the hotel's restaurant will have child-friendly meals. Younger kids don't tend to be as willing to experiment with their food as adults. The crocodile curry that you fancy giving a shot might just make them turn up their noses. It's likely that your hotel will have options suited around children since they know that children will often be staying in the hotel, so you won't have to worry about accommodating them. They might even have child menus; the serving sizes on those tend to be smaller, which will help you save a little more money.Share

I love to spend time with my grandkids and I've decided that I want to do some traveling with them. It's amazing to see how they see the world and it helps to open me up to seeing the world differently as well. It can be hard to find accommodation that works for one senior and 3 children which is why I thought I'd start a blog about traveling grandkids. I have reviews on differents hotels and tips on finding affordable accommodation when traveling with the grandkids. I hope I can inspire other grandparents to get out and travel with their grandkids.
