Preferred launches family website

Preferred Hotel Group has launched its family travel website, with search functionality, discussion on current news and travel trends, and itineraries for family adventure.

A key feature on the website is the ability for users to quickly search and filter locations by age, activities, amenities, interests and style to plan family getaways anywhere in the world.

The “Family Travel Planner” allows website visitors to search by the type of trip they want to take. Search functionality matches family hotel experiences with destinations by searching more than 200 Preferred Family Certified hotels and resorts.

Also included on the website is an interactive feature that allows families to plan ahead and organize daily itineraries so they can jump into activities as soon as they arrive. “Three Days in … ” showcases fresh local activities and places to eat along with top 10 things to know while in the destination. Each hotel also provides a list of events and things to do, including everything from annual festivals and local happenings to on-property activities.

Finally, the “Family Blogs” page streams live feeds from top family travel bloggers to keep families up-to-date on travel trends, gadgets, and news.

Launched one year ago, the Preferred Family program certifies members that provide programs, facilities, entertainment, services, and surroundings suited to the specific needs of different age groups – including infants, toddlers, tweens, and teenagers.
