St Kilda Road: The Blackman
Price guide (per night):
Stay and Play Package from $246
Art Series Hotel, The Blackman, conveniently located on St Kilda Road, welcomes its youngest guests with a special family 'stay and play package'.
The nine Art Series hotels showcase the work of Australian artists, with The Blackman featuring the work of Charles Blackman, most famous for his Alice in Wonderland series.
Children will love staying here, with Blackman's work adorning common areas and hotel rooms, starting with the reception desk, where your children can gaze at the 15 pieces of artwork while you check in.
Mini artists will have a chance to bloom too, with a special art canvas kit part of the package. Children can take home their artwork or we can keep it to add to our children's gallery in the car park lift lobbies.
The stay and play family package includes one night's accommodation in a Deluxe Studio Suite Twin. Rooms feature two Queen beds and come in a number of configurations, including some with a bed hidden in an alcove with its own TV.
With their spacious interiors, these rooms are perfect for a weekend escape. But with their own kitchenette and table and chairs for 4, they are also a great option for visiting families wanting to spend a few days in Melbourne.
The package includes breakfast at the hotel's Classico Restaurant. The set menu offers a number of choices, all of which start with fresh fruit salad and freshly squeezed juice. Although not on the menu, hot chocolate is on offer for children. With its European inspired menu, options include cooked breakfasts, although children might very well opt a special treat of the croissant and Nutella filled Bomboloni.
Also included in the package is a half day bike and scooter hire (2 bikes and 2 scooters). Just minutes from the hotel is Fawkner Park, perfect for an easy ride for young children along a number of pathways. Stop at the playground and maybe even have a picnic.
Free parking, WIFI and late check-out are also included and all at a very family friendly pricing from $246 a night.
More family friendly features include free cots, highchairs and Bugaboo Bee 3 pram hire. And while the hotel does not have its own pool, guests can use the pool at the Olsen Hotel, about 15 minutes by foot & tram or 10 minutes by car.
The stay and play package is valid for 2 adults and 2 children (aged to 12 years) and is available throughout the year, with limited availability on school holidays.
