Hotel Commonwealth's Hotel For Kids

hotel-for-kids.jpgOne thing that has become very clear during all of the traveling I've done with Laurel is that she loves hotels (and admittedly, I'm also a fan of not having to make my bed). And if you're looking for a fun family staycation option during February vacation week (or just to get through the rest of winter), check out the Hotel Commonwealth's Hotel for Kids program, which kicks off February 25 with a bedtime stories/pajama party to benefit ReadBoston. I'm thrilled to be a media partner of the Hotel Commonwealth for this event, and part of that partnership means awesomeness for you! Read on to learn more about the Hotel for Kids, as well as how to win a Hotel for Kids overnight package for February 25 + admission to the bedtime stories/pajama party!
