I was lucky enough to receive a family luxury hotel stay via Wotif for christmas, before I knew it we are swimming in the pool at the Crown Metropol Perth. Now my friends & family may wonder why we would do a hotel stay Perth when we only live an hour out from the city? Well when you have a baby, you realise…
Relax-Revive-Restore is so well appreciated (as a mum) and to get the most excitement and easiest way the better! Plus we loved the vibe of the casino/dining prior to baby life and until now had never stayed at the Metropol.
Surprisingly, The Merrywell Perth restaurant made us feel the most comfortable, very baby friendly providing dinner as early as 5pm, high chairs and the best drinks bar within the vicinity. Meadow loved the lobby too-piano playing, huge ceilings, glamorous people and everyone saying hello to her.
Overall we had a really great few nights and would highly recommend a hotel stay for new parents as a great way to stay in tune with society and enjoy yourself whilst being parents. We even tag teamed 30mins at the Roulette table and came home with a $70 WIN.
Quick Tips- Hotel Stays with a Baby
- Bedding– Try mimic the cot to home as much as possible (comforters, bedding, humidifier scents etc)
- Feeding– Keep the same routine as home and if you have to eat dinner at 5pm then EAT DINNER AT 5pm (we fed organic solid pouches whilst dining out to keep her entertained and bottles prior to naps).
- Entertainment– This is important! Bring ONE bag full of favourite toys and alternate through the day. Take a few out with you when you want to spend some time chilling out by the pool etc.
- Do Not Disturb sign during sleeping hours.
