An Awesome Experience in Washington DC

 If you're still streaming "Home Alone" for the kids through Netflix, this flash, packaged luxury experience from  Ritz Carlton Hotels should be of interest.  Through Saturday, November 3rd, 2012, the hotel is offering lucky children the chance to tour Washington DC and sleep over at their hotel just like the First Kids of the First Family would.

Starting at $4,995 per night, the Live Like a First Kid package includes one night in the hotel's posh two-bedroom Presidential Suite, the chosen home away from home of visiting celebrities and dignitaries. Other top secret and secure perks include:

  • Personal escort in a chauffeured luxury SUV for your family tour of Washington, D.C. monuments and attractions with VIP access.
  • Your "secret service style" security detail knows every shortcut and side door and makes sure that his “First Kid” never has to wait in line.
  • VIP Tour of the Newseum focussed on presidential themed exhibits. Your guide for the Newseum’s 14 major galleries and 15 theaters will immerse you in the world’s greatest news stories.
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of Mount Vernon Plantation brings you back to the daily life of the first president, George Washington. Tour includes the mansion, a dozen original structures, Washington’s Tomb, and nearly 50 acres of his extensive plantation.
  • Private tour of Georgetown Cupcake with a cupcake decorating class, a meet and greet with founders Sophie and Katherine, signed copy of "The Cupcake Diaries," souvenirs of their cable show "DC Cupcakes," and a dozen gift-wrapped cupcakes to take home. 
  • Private viewing of the Ritz-Carlton's VIP autograph book signed by heads of state and celebrities which includes signatures, quotes and even cartoon drawings by President Barack Obama, President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Jimmy Carter, President George Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush, Jay-Z, Steve and Terri Erwin, FC Barcelona, and more. Learn the background and history behind these signatures from the hotel’s in-house celebrity and dignitary expert.
  • Back of the house hotel tour with hotel security to see how the president and heads of state arrive and exit the Ritz Carlton DC. Cool.
  • Michelle Obama Shortbread Cookie Amenity. Mrs. Obama’s cookies were a big deal at the 2009 inauguration, and were given out by the hotel then. Today, culinary training students from DC Central Kitchen bake the Ritz shortbread cookies.
  • Keepsake monogram pillowcases with official Presidential seal to commemorate your unforgettable adventure.
Other perks of this package reflect the high calibre service, luxury facilities, and opulent style that families can expect from Ritz Carlton hotels. They include a full American breakfast for up to 2 adults and 2 children in your suite or in the hotel’s restaurant, a   Ritz Kids VIP patriotic backpack, hotel scavenger hunt with special prize, complimentary internet and in-room movie, overnight Valet Parking and a late check-out at 2pm.  If your busy schedule allows you to stay longer, check out Family Travel Forum's Guide to Family Attractions in DC and see how the other 99% live.
