Hyatt hotels around the world are celebrating the busy summer travel season with new offerings that the whole family can enjoy. This summer, families can take advantage of an array of new services and promotions that will make traveling with the family easier. New offerings for kids include VIP children services and packages, a revamped kids’ menu created for kids by kids, activities for children to explore and learn about their local destinations and fun social events for parents featuring tasty summer dishes.

After a successful debut of Hyatt’s For Kids By Kids menu in 2012, Hyatt hotels are not only expanding their children’s menu this summer with new fun, fresh and flavorful dishes, but also offering families the opportunity to create a recipe for their next kids’ menu with the launch of the “For Kids By Kids Family Cook-Off” recipe contest.

The contest, which kicks-off the second year of Hyatt’s For Kids By Kids initiative, invites families to create and share a healthy breakfast recipe along with a photo via Facebook, for a chance to win a vacation and a spot on Hyatt’s For Kids By Kids menu. The family who submits the winning recipe will receive a trip for four people to stay at any Hyatt in the continental U.S., including airfare up to $2,000.  See the abbreviated contest rules below and visit www.facebook.com/Hyatt for the full official rules.

New menu additions were created hand-in-hand with Hyatt’s food and beverage team and 12-year-old chef, Haile Thomas, who has cooked for First Lady Michelle Obama. The dishes were created based on feedback from parents, who said that, while they enjoyed exposing their children to new and exciting flavors, they also wanted to see even more options on the menu, including childhood favorites with a healthy twist.


VIP Baby Amenities

To ensure that all Hyatt guests, including the hotel’s youngest travelers, receive the red carpet treatment during their stay, Hyatt hotels have developed a variety of VIP offerings for children of all ages at destinations across the globe. These family-friendly services and amenities range from personal care items and luxury baby gear, to stuffed animals and bedding for children.
