Families frequently need a fun outlet for the children undergoing intensive medical care. Our Hope the Bear was designed with this in mind, and a visit to the Zoo will enhance their time in Boston.

The Inn at Longwood Medical gets plenty of family visitors, so they’ve teamed up with the Franklin Park Zoo to create a fun new package. The Lions, Tigers, and Bears offer includes two tickets to the zoo, a coloring book, an animal mask, and a plush version of the hotel’s famous Hope the Bear mascot. It’s the hotel’s way of making sure that visitors enjoy Boston as much as the locals do.

A beloved Boston institution, the Franklin Park Zoo is a non-profit organization situated on 72-acres of the historic Franklin Park. The zoo was founded in 1912 and has long been considered the crown jewel of the Boston park system. The zoo boasts over 220 different animal species, including lions, tigers, gorillas, crocodiles, and other favorites.

“I think the package is a perfect pairing,” said Brian Stiglets, General Manager of The Inn at Longwood Medical. “With so many of our guests visiting Boston Children’s Hospital, the Franklin Park Zoo offers a great way to spend the day and a wonderful way for families to enjoy Boston beyond the medical community. These families frequently need a fun outlet for the children, brothers, and sisters undergoing intensive medical care. Our Hope the Bear was designed with this in mind, and a visit to the Zoo will enhance their time in Boston while offering a little respite for the parents.”

A family-owned business, The Inn at Longwood Medical is located next to the Boston Children’s Hospital. The hotel boasts newly renovated rooms and a variety of amenities, including fantastic dining at the Longwood Grille & Bar, complimentary meals for children, a convenient location near the hospital, and personalized service.
