Alpine luxury isn’t just for adults at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Stein Eriksen Lodge, where these five amenities make kids feel at home:
1. Kids stay free. Children age 18 and younger stay free of charge in their parents’ room at the Park City hotel.
2. Children’s menu. The Glitretind restaurant and 24-hour room service both have a kids’ menu with lunch, dinner and dessert selections for picky palettes. The menu has healthy snacks like Grapes & Sliced Apple with peanut butter and entrées like Grilled Breast of Chicken with vegetables. There are also some not-so-healthy but kid-pleasing options like Cheese or Pepperoni Pizza and Worms & Dirt for dessert.
3. Thor’s Lair Game Room. With foosball, pool and air hockey tables, arcade games and four Xbox gaming stations with ergonomic chairs, Thor’s Lair is popular with kid and teen travelers — and adults, too. Sink into a leather-and-fabric couch to watch the big game on one of the flat-screen TVs.
4. Outdoor pool. The outdoor pool at Stein Eriksen is heated year-round to 83 degrees, so kids can enjoy the pool even when the snow is falling. In the summer months, a bin on the pool deck holds pool noodles and balls for kids to play with.
5. Welcome amenity. During the winter months, kids that stay at Stein Eriksen Lodge receive a plush stuffed animal as a complimentary welcome amenity and memento of their stay.
The five best amenities for children at Stein Eriksen Lodge are:
1. Thor’s Game Room, equipped with Xbox and Wii
