If you're tired of fighting the kids -- and maybe Grandpa too -- for elbow room and privacy on family trips, consider this solution: a three-bedroom hotel suite with nearly 1,000 square feet.
The 800-room Holiday Inn Family Suites Resort in Orlando, Fla., has created 11 Mega Kidsuites and plans to nearly triple that number by the end of the year, said Terry Whaples, president and operating partner with the Holiday Inn Family Suites franchise.
The suites, which can sleep 10 people, go for $225 to $350 per night, depending on the season. They include two private king bedrooms; a children's suite with bunk beds and a third bed; two parlor areas; a full kitchen with dining table; and two bathrooms.
Did we mention the five TV sets?
"No more fighting about which channel to watch," Whaples said.
The suites aim to address needs of three-generation travel and "blended families," giving adults, teens and small children their own space, she added.
