San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
Reading, writing and arithmetic aren’t important at least not for the last few weeks of summer vacation. Residence Inn San Antonio Downtown/Alamo Plaza is offering families the chance to have one more fun-filled vacation before summer draws to a close.
Throughout the month of August, the hotel in downtown San Antonio is partnering with the San Antonio Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to celebrate its “Kidcation” event. This is a chance for parents and kids to make lifelong memories before all of the mundane responsibilities that consume them during the school year. The hotel in downtown San Antonio will provide child guests with an activity pack at check-in for stays Aug. 12-18 and is sponsoring a booth during the city’s “Kidcation Week” festivities.
The weeklong, citywide celebration kicks off Monday, Aug. 12, with a carnival in Hemisfair Park from 9:30 a.m. to noon. During the celebration, kids will enjoy live music, food and meet-and-greets from area mascots such as the San Antonio Spurs Coyote, SeaWorld San Antonio’s Shamu and Six Flags Fiesta Texas’ Bugs Bunny. In addition to the special at Residence Inn San Antonio Downtown/Alamo Plaza, other restaurants and museums will be offering families with children special pricing and rewards throughout the event. City-sponsored events include Bat Loco, where families can learn about San Antonio’s bat community and watch as they hunt for insects; a dessert cooking demonstration in Hemisfair Park, free PG movies in Hemisfair Park every weeknight and Cowboy Day.
Whether it’s job-related stress or just needing a break from summer vacation, the San Antonio extended-stay hotel seeks to give all weary travelers a luxurious place to rest and relax. Vacationers who stay in one of the Alamo hotel’s well-appointed suites enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and stove top as well as amenities such as a new 32-inch LCD television, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access and Paul Mitchell products in the bathroom. Beds are equipped with crisp linens, thick mattresses and fluffy pillows, and a pullout sofa bed offers extra sleeping space.
The hotel in downtown San Antonio offers a 24-hour fitness center equipped with cardiovascular machines as well as free weights. Travelers also may access the heated outdoor pool and whirlpool, with towels provided.
Along with The Alamo and River Walk, family-friendly attractions near the San Antonio extended-stay hotel include the San Antonio Zoological Gardens and Aquarium, Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, San Antonio Children’s Museum and La Villita, a historic arts village.
