Let’s Take the Kids to

Let’s Take the Kids to Canada’s Castle on the Coast BY: REBECCA TALBOT Fairmont Empress takes care of parents and kids – in luxury style! 32 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM

Well, maybe it didn’t make you think that, but it should. When you’re in the mood for sophisticated old world charm, Canada’s Castle on the Coast mixes upscale and family friendly so well, it’s the perfect holiday to keep everyone happy.

Not at The Empress; this luxury hotel has recognized this conundrum and created a family package that checks all the boxes.

Our bags traveled ahead of us to our room while we checked in at the Fairmont Gold concierge, who informed us of the benefits of the gold lounge including food service times, where to find board games and an honor bar featuring Todd’s favorite purple Empress 1908 Gin.

The Empress “Let’s Take the Kids” package includes a tent for the kids complete with pint-sized robes, sweet treats, stuffed Bengal tigers, and an TRAVEL OFTEN . LIVE WELL . 33
