You can use one of the facilities strollers or wagons for a small deposit and there are matinee movies daily and weekend evening shows for kids where you can get a "theatre babysitter" – someone to sit with your child to see the movie and keep an eye on them.
The hotel also offers regular babysitting services and the use of baby equipment (playpens, high chairs etc). There is a safety kit available for parents who want to make their room kid-safe.
There are many room choices including rooms with 2 double beds and the Family Fun Suite which has 2 bedrooms, living room and play area. The family room also has kid's bathrobes, bubble bath, cookie jars, bunk beds and take-home gifts!
