The luxury of the Omni Hotel chain has become a family favorite. From the incredible boutique experience we had at the Omni Majestic in St Louis to the all suite Omni Chicago on the Magnificent Mile, we have found a consistent focus on customer service, tastefully decorated rooms and the small touches that create loyalty. A few months ago I received a video tour of the Kids Sensory Suite at the Omni Mandalay in Las Colinas, Texas. I was impressed by the thought that went into a room for the hotel's youngest guests. A few weeks ago my family got to experience the fabulous Kids Suite for ourselves.
Video Tour of the Kids Sensory Suite at Omni Mandalay in Las Colinas, Texas
While a picture may be worth a thousand words this video tour of the Omni Kids Suite (complete with a bit of over-acting) and the connected King Suite (along with my apparent over-use of the word ‘fabulous') can do more in 5 minutes than I could hope to do with a thousand word post.
Staying at the Omni Mandalay
Like all the Omni Hotels, Mandalay has its own unique feel. The design at the Mandalay has a clean Asian-influenced design. Staff are exceptional and very friendly. If you need to get outside and burn off some energy the lakeside trail is lovely. You'll also find a kids play area in the rear courtyard.
The Kids Suite and connecting King Suite were incredibly roomy and beautifully decorated. The Kids Suite, with twin beds, a desk with creation station, toys and cuddly stuffed animals was decorated by the daughter of Caryn Kboudi, Omni’s VP of Corporate Communications, and her friends when they were in 6th grade. It's a perfect oasis for the kids.
The adjoining King Suite has a beautiful sitting room with couch and desk. But I especially loved the table near the floor to ceiling windows- a perfect place to sit in the morning and enjoy my tea with a beautiful view of Dallas in the distance.
As with all Omni Hotels, kids are welcomed- whether you're staying in the kid's suite or not. All kids receive an Omni Sensational Kids Pack upon check in. Inside they will find small toys, crayons and an activity book and even Twizzlers! Because Omni knows the first night away from home can be difficult, complimentary milk and cookies will arrive before bed.
Perks don't end with the kids. Members of the free Select Guest program receive complimentary beverage delivery every morning of their stay, complimentary wireless internet and the new GHA Discovery Local Experience after only one stay.
While you can book any of the Omni Mandalay's fabulous vacation packages online -including their terrific Family Fun getaway- you'll probably need to use the chat feature on the website or call directly to book the Kids Suite. It will be a stay your family won't forget.
