Sofitel Where Even Your Children Are Royalty
As part of its Magnifique Family package, a selection of Sofitel Luxury Hotels has crowned guests’ children “Little Princes and Princesses.” During their stay, children will be treated like the royalty they are — and given an opportunity to learn about the vivid cultures and traditions around them.
“Le Petit Prince,” the cherished classic French children’s book, is the inspiration for Sofitels’ kids program, and the little ones will delight in having Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s own Petit Prince as their guide to world exploration, travel, and environmental protection.
At arrival children will receive a Le Petit Prince gift set and have their photos taken to start their very own personalized travel book. They can write, draw, and insert photos to document their adventures — and there will be many. Each hotel has a set of activities for their young royals, from treasure hunts to dessert workshops, that are based on their location and amenities.
At some one hundred Sofitel Hotels, the Magnifique Family Package also includes:
• Luxurious and kid-friendly accommodations
• A 50% discount on a second room for children
• Free breakfast for children
• Optional late checkout up to 4:00 pm
Best of all, Sofitel will donate €2 per room night to the Saint-Exupery Foundation as part of the Family package.
Sofitel explains that their goal as a family-friendly company is to show their young guests how to see themselves in the role of Le Petit Prince, “an adventurer who discovered the world during an extraordinary and poetic journey.”
