You know that viral meme that showcases how moms don’t ever really get vacations…they just do their same household tasks but in a different location? Well, every time we take a trip I think of that meme and shake my head because it is both sad and true all at the same time. HOWEVER, a few weekends ago we had the most relaxed and family friendly staycation we have ever had (and trust me, we do a TON of staycations) at Loews Hotel Chicago. Why was it so relaxing? Because of the Loews Loves Families program that caters to and celebrates families so that moms (and dads) can actually RELAX while on vacation.
My family and I received a complimentary stay at Loews Hotel Chicago. All opinions are my own.
Loews has always been known as a brand that caters to kids, but as of this year they have introduced a new Loews Loves Families program focused on the pillars of comfort, imagination, and exploration. Instead of solely focusing on kids, Loews is placing an emphasis on the art of togetherness, whether families have a new bundle of joy or are navigating the teen years with older children.
Loews Loves Families Pillars
To promote comfort, Loews supplies things that you might have forgotten when packing for your stay—and then some. Hotel amenities include family friendly items such as bottle warmers and outlet covers to cribs. Families can even borrow tech toys like video game systems based on hotel availability.
In terms of imagination, Loews provides opportunities for families to open their minds, unleash their creativity, and create memorable shared experiences. When families check in, kids are welcomed with the new Loews traveler pin and bags filled with other activities to do during their stay.
If you book a stay throughout the summer, families can enjoy a “dive in movie” on Saturday nights at the pool. My boys were SO pumped to be able to watch one of their favorite movies (“Night at the Museum” in case you were wondering) while splashing about and I loved being able to relax and not have to be in the pool with them the entire time.
Loews Loves Families Packages
Lastly, Loews supports exploration through packages such as the Chicago Discovery Family Package. It is designed to keep kids entertained and parents engaged while navigating the city’s top tourist spots. In addition to the “Discovery Kit” that kids receive upon arrival, the package includes free breakfast for kids and milk and cookies delivered to your room. And did I mention 20% off services at the Loews Hotel Spa for parents???
My boys especially loved using putting on the backpacks and setting out to explore their city using the compass, Scavenger Hunt booklet, and journal included in their “Discovery Kit.”
Another great package if you are hitting the road this summer is Loews’ Family Road Trip Package. Now through September 30, 2019, families receive a second guest room at 50% off, complimentary breakfast for up to two children, a $30 food and beverage credit, and complimentary parking when booking the Family Road Trip Package.
If you have a foodie family, definitely check out the Flavor by Lowes Hotels package. It is an innovative food and beverage experience serving up the best local flavors so that you don’t even have to leave the hotel. At the Loews Chicago Hotel location, guests can enjoy products from Chicago Honey Co-op, Here cold-pressed juices, and my personal favorite, brews from Revolution Brewing.
Be sure to visit the Streeterville Social location on the rooftop of Lowes Chicago for creative and delicious bites and drinks. They have a kids’ menu for dinner but are happy to accommodate the littlest diners for brunch as well.
