Our rowdy family of five recently had the pleasure of checking out the Four Seasons “glamping” activity, part of the growing trend in luxury hotels to cater to their littlest clients. Upon arrival for our one-night stay, they picked out beanie babies from a red “welcome wagon” that was in the lobby. In our room was a tent, which my 5 and 6 year-olds immediately dove into. Inside the closet were mini bathrobes and tiny slippers, which would have been perfect to wear to the pool on the eighth floor but my five year-old enjoyed just lounging around on the plush bed.
Glamping at the Four Seasons Boston
The hotel’s location is perfect, right on the garden, so we were able to walk outside and hop on the famous swan boats and be back in our hotel all within an hour. Back in our room we heard squeals of delight-the staff had left “Happy Glamping” written in chocolate on a place complete with all the fixings for s’mores. As a mom of three I appreciate the way the Four Seasons is trying to be more kid-friendly, even if there were not a ton of other children around (at least not loud ones, like mine!)
The Four Seasons Boston, located right across the street from the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden, is centrally located for Boston family vacation. It’s right near Boston’s Back Bay and Theatre District, and a short train or cab ride from Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park. The 273 room hotel was recently renovated, and offers 77 suites, as well as a 44 foot indoor pool with spa. The hotel also boasts an onsite restaurant/bar. In addition to the “glamping” package, there are other family activities and packages, including an adventure package that includes cookie-making classes.
