If there’s one hotel feature that never fails to make kids squeal with joy, it’s bunk beds. So if you're looking for these special accommodations for your next trip, check out these five hotels with bunk beds that will actually make kids look forward to bedtime. For real.
Beaches Turks and Caicos: The sleek family suites in the Italian Village of this Sesame Street-centric resort offer bunk beds with a pull-out trundle. Bonus: there are sliding doors between the bunk room and the rest of the suite so parents get some privacy. Rates for one of these all-inclusive suites runs about $14,000 for a week-long stay in early March.
Hilton Sandestin Beach Resort & Spa, Florida: This beachfront resort on the west coast of Florida has bunk beds in its deluxe junior and one-bedroom suites. The suites contain another kid-friendly asset: a television specifically for the kiddos parked conveniently near their beds. Rates start around $199 in early February for a deluxe junior suite.
Boyne Mountain, Boyne, Mich.: The Salzburg Suites at this Midwestern ski retreat hold not one set of bunk beds, but two, both inside a small castle-like alcove. Almost as exciting as the bunk beds is the indoor water park downstairs. Rates are much higher than the regular rooms, which start at $199 a night. You have to call 855.688.7024 to make reservations as you can't do it online.
Hotel Helix, Washington, D.C.: This hip boutique hotel offers a bunk bed studio, complete with a stocked organic honor bar and, get this, hula hoops. Tykes also get pint-sized bathrobes for their stay. Rates start at $269 a night in early February.
TRYP Wyndham Times Square South, New York City: The TRYP’s family rooms have not only bunk beds but a living area, fridge and Wii gaming system. The Sangsun Experience Room provides a “home theater” with a 60-inch 3-D plasma tv and 3D glasses along with other tech-y touches like a Blu-ray player and an i-Pod dock. Rates for a family room start at $250 a night in early February.
