We know that many visitors bring their kids to Union Square. It’s a great place to stay, since you’re right near an urban park, close to the cable cars and just a quick trip away from many kid-friendly attractions. If you’re searching for family-friendly hotels in San Francisco for your next family vacation, this post is dedicated to you and your sanity. Here at Personality Hotels we’ve put together some special packages just for you and your little ones.
Party Like a Penguin
The California Academy of Sciences is a fabulous place to take your kids on a visit to San Francisco, and one of their star attractions is an exhibit with live South African Penguins! Penguins are among the most social of all birds, so you can party like one with the “Party Like A Penguin” package. With this package you can spend the night with your family in one of our boutique Union Square hotels: Hotel Diva, Kensington Park Hotel or Hotel Union Square and be greeted with two tickets to the California Academy of Sciences, a science-themed gift bag filled with nerdy surprises and a selection of healthy treats.
The California Academy of Science hosts some of nature’s most marvelous discoveries from a wold-class aquarium to their current Earthquake exhibit, so it’s sure to engage both kids and adults. For every package purchased, Personality Hotels will donate $5 to their programs.
Party Like an Olympic Athlete
In the spirit of the Olympics you and your family can channel Lance Armstrong as you bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. You may not make the Olympic team with your record-breaking time but you and your family will certainly have fun and enjoy the view. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, so we suggest you celebrate this momentous occasion by taking advantage of our all-day bike rentals and cruising around the bay and Sausalito.
With this package, you get a night with your family in the Hotel Diva, Kensington Park or Hotel Union Square. Your family will be greeted with two all-day bike rentals from Blazing Saddles, your very own piece of the Golden Gate Bridge (made with Ghirardelli chocolate, of course) and a pack of healthy snacks.
Slumber Party in one of our Kids Suites
The Hotel Diva makes kids feel like true divas (or divos) when they stay in the Little Divas Suite, which celebrates famous child actors, actresses and characters. Hotel Diva offers two-room suites, allowing kids to have their own room with a connecting door to the parent’s room. Stylized for even the savviest pint-sized traveler, the Little Divas Suite comes complete with modern bunk beds, colorful “Donut Pouf” cushions, a Mac computer, a karaoke machine, a Wii gaming system, a drawing table and lots of toys.
Hotel Union Square's Kids Suite boasts retro mixed media collages of famous San Francisco landmarks, all stylized in primary colors to engage kids and encourage them to be artistic. The suite features a cherry wood trundle bed, a computer complete with history-related games, a Nintendo Wii, a writing desk and books and games.
