A Family Weekend at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia

I recently spent a long weekend at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. When it comes to family travel, you really can’t beat staying at a Four Seasons property, and this Four Seasons hotel is no exception. Kids are indulged as soon as they enter the establishment. They get an afternoon and bedtime snack. They even offer pint-sized robes…

Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, A Resort Oasis in Florence

The Four Seasons Hotel Firenze (Florence) has a very special feature: an 11-acre (4.5 hectares) walled garden — the largest private botanical garden in the city. To describe this space as kid-friendly is a vast understatement. This garden, Giardino della Gherardesca, is a paradise for pint-sized people and their parents. Although Florence is one of my favorite…

Mind-Blowing Luxury at the Four Seasons Geneva

Geneva is synonymous with international wealth and power. It’s not surprising that there is a long list of luxury brands catering to business and leisure travelers alike, which makes achieving any sort of ‘wow factor’ a challenge. Yet the Four Seasons des Bergues Geneva manages to sweep the world’s most demanding travelers off their feet … and be kid-friendly at the same time.

Mom and Son Trip to Prague

Old World Summer Getaway at the Four Seasons Prague

What’s more beautiful Prague or Paris? The fact that this debate is even possible tells you everything. Prague is one of the old world gems of Europe and just so happens to have a glorious Four Seasons Hotel ideally situated on the banks of the Vltava River between Prague Castle and old town — our home for a four-night mom + son getaway this summer.

Home Away from Home at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

The Four Seasons Toronto offered Ciao Bambino a media package to experience the hotel. As always, our opinions are our own. When it comes to luxury hotel stays – with or without kids – few brands consistently execute an extraordinary guest experience better than the Four Seasons. I’ve stayed at 17 of their hotels on…

Just Got Back from a Hawaii Family Vacation in Lanai

The smallest publicly accessible inhabited island in the Hawaiian Islands chain and strikingly underdeveloped, Lanai feels like a remote island getaway, yet it’s only a 45-minute ferry ride from Maui. With few accommodation possibilities and 3,000 inhabitants, there are large stretches of the island without anyone on it.

Translation: a family vacation in Lanai is truly an escape from urban life and chaos of any kind.

An Unexpected Luxury Hotel Surprise at Four Seasons Washington DC

Fresh. Hip. Cozy. Fun. These are not the adjectives I thought would be at the top of my notes list at the Four Seasons Washington. Despite the fact that this hotel opened 34 years ago — it’s the first Four Seasons branded hotel to open in the United States — and is the hotel of choice for the global Who’s Who visiting our nation’s capital, it’s modern and exciting with zero pretentious attitude. Unexpected, no?

Part of the fresh feel is due to brilliant renovations and interior design. However, the way it looks inside isn’t the full story behind its glory.
