What do children love about The Athenaeum?

Children love The Athenaeum from the moment they arrive! They are greeted by Jim, our Doorman, who many of think is a giant (he’s 6ft6!). Also, we have a warm and friendly laid-back atmosphere so the children feel relaxed and so do the parents. The children also enjoy the toys, scooters and bikes that we offer and also the surrounding parks – Green Park is right across the road.

Can you tell us a bit about the Children’s Concierge…

Children’s Concierge is a service that we offer to everyone travelling with children. A questionnaire is sent out after guests have made a booking for parents/guardians to complete in regards to the child’s favourite things including toys and films. Then, where available, we place these in their room in time for their arrival so that they feel extra special!

What does being a family-run hotel mean for families?

Being family-run we are able to see a family’s point of view, especially when it comes to their needs while travelling, so it allows us to accommodate their requirements. For example, many of our Residences offer a sofa or bunk beds, a compact kitchenette which has a fridge, washing machine and more essentials that a family would need in a home setting.

What nearby attractions do you recommend for families?

I would definitely recommend Buckingham Palace which is only a short walk away from us, the Princess Diana playground, The London Eye, the Science Museum and Ripley’s Believe it or Not…

What is the most enjoyable part of being the Guest Experience Manager at The Athenaeum?

The most enjoyable part of my job is when the guests call to see me, and thank me for my help. I just love seeing the smiles and happy faces!

Who’s your ideal travel companion?

I’d say anyone who is easy to get along with and has a spirit of adventure and is willing to embrace whatever travelling may bring with a smile on their face!
