Just in time for everyone to completely forget about their New Year’s resolutions, New York City’s Refinery Hotel opens a Bread & Breakfast experience your sweet-tooth family members will love.


This limited-time offer is brought to travelers in partnership with Hotels.com and a whole lot of baked goods. Sugar monsters, bread lovers and anyone who’s ever dreamt about getting stuck overnight in their favorite place, this hotel deal is for you.


Kick your experience off at check-in, when guests collect their keys and find their carb-themed room waiting for them. Guests enter a room bursting with the scent of fresh baked goods and a minibar resembling a bakery case. Expect a wide variety of complimentary pastries and sweets, but save some room for a hearty (sugary) breakfast from the in-room cereal bar, donut wall and fresh bagels with jam, butter and cream cheese all included.


Your kids can literally eat their way through the room and snuggle into their food coma in bed while the adults hit the town. Or stay in and enjoy a cozy staycation amid piles of croissant pillows on the bed, adorned with a toast-shaped headboard.


Some other fun surprises and inclusions await, like the take-home robe (no need to steal this one, it’s yours!) with a custom “Carbivore” monogram embroidered on it — don’t forget the matching baguette slippers.


If the kids (somehow) have room for more, the room service menu completes the Bread & Breakfast theme with starches galore. Guests receive a $100 credit included upon reserving the room, so have at it.


“Hotels.com Bread & Breakfast is the latest addition to our list of irreverent, bookable room experiences available exclusively on Hotels.com,” said Adam Jay, president, Hotels.com brand. “There’s no better time than ‘National Ditch Your Resolution Day’ to reward our customers with an overnight stay in a room designed floor to ceiling with carbs!”


Sure, you’re really going to be pushing the limit of self-control and indulging your child’s every bad craving habit, but it’s vacation, calories don’t count.


The Hotels.com Bread & Breakfast room begins at $225 per night and is available for booking through Jan. 31. Make the kids’ dreams come true with their own room with mom and dad down the hall, or make it a couple’s getaway — either way, you won’t go hungry. Contact the hotel for more information.

A Day at Nickelodeon Universe

If your family travel brings you to the greater New York City region, opt for a taste of nostalgia (or the grown-ups and fun and imagination for the kids at American Dream’s Nickelodeon Universe. Since I don’t have children, I recruited my best friend and her 6-year-old twins, Declan and Delaney, to help me check out the Nickelodeon-themed theme park and all the ways it brings to life favorite characters from cartoons both past and present, like Rugrats!, which I watched as a child, and Spongebob Square Pants, which is more Declan’s speed.
