Question: We are planning on coming to Jamaica next month. Could you let us know about availability from July 11th to July 20th 2012? We are a couple with a 7 year old daughter.
Answer: A few great luxury hotels for families in Jamaica that have availability for your dates of travel are the Round Hill Hotel and Villas as well as the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Jamaica. The Round Hill Hotel and Villas has one bedroom and villa suites available that would be able to accommodate 2 adults and 1 child for an additional $30 per night, and the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Jamaica has Garden View Suite with a king bed and a sofa bed that would be able to accommodate your family of 3 as well. To make a reservation at either of these room options, simply click on the hotel name, enter your dates of travel, select the room option, and fill in the booking form. Please fill in the special request field stating that you will be traveling with a 7 year old child so the hotel can properly prepare for your arrival.
Please be advised that the rates, availability, as well as the extra person charges are subject to change depending on the hotel’s policies.

Earlier today Five Star Alliance recived the following question from one of our clients:
My husband and I are traveling with our 15 year old niece for 2 nights in August. I'm looking for a suite that will accommodate all 3 of us, but with privacy for us as well. We may need two rooms instead of one suite. If there are chateaux hotels available near Tours, that would be lovely. Thank you for your asssistance.
We did some research, especially when it comes to Tours - known for its wines, the battle of Tours in 732, and the Paris-Tours cycling race, then reviewed our properties and came back with the following suggestions:
Chateau D'Artigny is in Montbazon, about 20 minutes South of the center of Tours. The Chateau offers the following for 2 adults and 1 teenager, or 3 adults:
JUNIOR SUITE GUEST BEDROOM - The Luxurious Junior Suites and duplex are spacious, located in main chateau, Ariane Pavilion or Fragrance House overlooking the Chateau, gardens, park or woods. Sofa bed possible for children under 12. Flat screen, Air conditioning. Sleeps up to 2 adults (or up to 3 adults with extra bed).
Located at right is the Chateau d'Artigny Junior Suite Duplex in the Ariane Pavilion.
Currently rates for August 4, 2012 for 2 nights are starting at EUR 520 per night for 2 adults. However rates are being pulled live from the system, and are subject to change based on availability.
Chateau d'Esclimont is located in Ile, about 2 hours north of Tours. The Chateau offers 2 different room types to accommodate you, your husband your neice.
JUNIOR SUITE GUEST BEDROOM - Single floor or duplex, very spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Junior suites consist of one bedroom and a private lounge with sofa bed. The bathroom has a shower and a separate bath. Fitted with, Wifi access, minibar, 42 square metres. Sleeps up to 2 adults (or 3 adults/2adults 1 child with extra bed).
