March Break Fun at the Delta Chelsea


    TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - With March Break fast approaching, many parents
are scrambling to plan a getaway with their kids. But taking a family holiday
can be costly - to both your wallet and patience level. This year, avoid the
familiar cries of "Are we there yet?" and book an inexpensive and hassle-free
getaway closer to home. From March 13 - 22, find out why City Parent Magazine
voted the Delta Chelsea as the "Best Family Hotel" in 2008.
    The Chelsea's Family Fun Package - from just $169 - includes overnight
accommodation, underground parking, a $25 daily food credit, Family Fun Zone
activities and exclusive "Show Your Key and Save" discounts to top
attractions. The Delta Chelsea is also home to Toronto's only indoor
waterslide, the 4-storey "Corkscrew". And if that's not enough, guests booking
the Family Fun Package receive a complimentary The Chatterbox family game
(retail value $29.99) - the game that helps to open the lines of communication
between parents and their kids (www.chatterboxgames.com).
    Delta Hotels prides itself as being family focused, that's why across the
chain we provide free accommodation for children 17 and under when staying
with a parent or guardian. "Kids eat for free" from the special children's
menu for children 6 and under, while children ages 7 to 12 years old, "eat for
half price" from the regular menu or at list price from the special children's
menu.
    Children between the ages of 5 to 12 can join Camp Chelsea and enjoy
activities such as indoor/outdoor sports, arts and crafts, games, behind the
scene tours and more. Kids can explore their creative side at the Children's
Creative Centre, filled with exciting and entertaining activities to keep any
child busy for hours! Painting, PlayStation, cooperative play, colourful fish
and a bunny named Brownie, are only the beginning!
    At night, the whole family will enjoy scheduled activities such as
scavenger hunts, Family Fear Factor, Bingo Bonanza, Chelsea Idol and
Moviemania. For those looking for a little rest and relaxation, the separate
adults-only area on the 27th floor features a state-of-the-art fitness
facility, outdoor seasonal sundeck and pool.
    An exciting addition to the Family Fun Zone, Webkinz are now being sold
at the Delta Chelsea. Webkinz pets are lovable plush toys that come with a
unique secret code. With it, you enter Webkinz World where you care for your
virtual pet, answer trivia, learn Kinzcash and play the best kids games on the
net.
    Our new Teen Lounge, "Club 33", has established itself as the coolest
hangout within the Chelsea. Equipped with a Ping-Pong table, big screen LCD
television with Blu Ray player, two brand new HP Touch screen computers with
Internet access, X BOX 360 featuring RockBand and two IPOD docking stations,
the entertainment is endless.
