    • I for one am against this one. Why? What is the purpose of introducing them to this kind of partying at such an early stage in their lives. IMO  this only sets up ideas to go to hotels as they get in their adolescent stage of life and there comes trouble, boys! I know kids will be kids and they are going to do whatever and we can't watch them 24/7 but to invite this hotel thing into their lives at such an early age to me is just crazy.

    • Not sure what you mean by hotel parties.

      Around here lots of kids go to a hotel with a big waterslide for their birthday.  It’s a big deal, especially nice for kids with winter birthdays.  There needs to be adequate adult supervision.  That has been my son’s b-day party for the last 6 or 8 yrs.

      I don’t see the need for any birthday party much less something that extravagant!

    • Hi Tulup/Annie, parents make reservations for rooms for the kids and their invites to spend the night and they have the birthday parties there at the hotel.

    • I know of some people who do it just for the use of the pool.

    • A party like that one is fine and good but these sleep over type to me are ostentatious.   Just because a parent doesn’t want to deal with a few kids in their home is not an excuse to go to a hotel and disrupt the guest who are there.  I have stayed at a hotel where a party like this was going on for a 12 year old and demanded for my money back and to relocated to a different hotel.  It was a nightmare.  The kids were out of control and I was not the only guest complaining about it.  Some one even got so upset that they called the police to deal with party.

    • LOL I too think I would have done the same thing calling the police most people go to hotels for rest and relaxation during their business trips etc...

    • I’m in the Northeast too and have never heard of a hotel party. We always had our birthday parties at home with family and friends. I think a hotel party is a little much.

    • I am opposed to hotel parties.  I have done parties at home, bowling, and Chuck E Cheese and my son has had fun at all of them.  Like others said, I think this is a bit much and over the top.

      My son is almost 8 and the only time he had a sleepover was when I went in to have Jack and he spent the night at his babysitter’s house.  As a child, I never had sleepovers or spent the night at a friend’s house either.

    • Any hotel party with a sleepover is disruptive to the guests.

    • I agree with the ladies. Our country is to much to fast. Its all about who has the better clothes, the better shoes, the pool, ect ect.  And then they want to know why are children are growing the way they are.  What happened to “pin the tail on the donkey“, “hide and go seek“, “slumber parties“.  Parents need to go outside and play with their kids. I got grown children that play xbox 360, more than talk to thier kids.. sad.very sad.
