Day #1 of Our Family #Staycation at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Coco Key Water Park in Boston North Shore


Late afternoon on Friday, our family of five officially kicked off our weekend staycation at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Danvers, Massachusetts, which houses the Coco Key Water Park of Boston North Shore!  January is a special month for our family because all three of our children were born in this month.  This year we were invited to celebrate their birthdays with a family staycation in one of the DoubleTree's new family-friendly suite-inspired guest rooms.

Here is a mini tour of the guest room where we will be staying for two nights.  In addition to the two cozy youth twin beds, a nightlight, and an adorable pair of upholstered cubes for seating, which were all separated with a partial wall from the rest of the room, we also discovered . . .

Complimentary plush Coco toys and Coco Key Water Park pillowcases . . . one for each child.


A separate television for the children's end of the room.


Two lofty double beds.


A desk, a television, a microwave, a fridge, and a coffeemaker on the adults' end of the room.


Highlights from our first evening at the DoubleTree by Hilton . . .

We each received a warm chocolate chip walnut cookie when we checked in.


We managed to spend some time at the arcade before it closed for the evening.

Although many of the games were too difficult for our kindergartners, we all had a blast . . . 


. . . adults included!


Just like at home . . . a bedtime story from big brother Jake.


Time for bed! We have a big day at the water park tomorrow!!

Thank you to the Coco Key Water Park and the DoubleTree by Hilton for providing us with complimentary accommodations, meals, arcade credits, and water park passes for us to base this review upon.  All opinions are my own.
