The room that glows blue, 15 windows up: Omni San Antonio at the Colonnade Aquatica Kids Suite
The room has walls covered with a 3D coral reef, 2 real aquariums, stingray bean bags, bubble swivel chair, cubbies full of sea creature toys, 2 flat screen TVs, DVD player, Play Station, Wii console and stacks of movies and games. There are floor to ceiling water bubble lights that change color and waves of blue lights across the ceiling. Two twin Murphy beds fold into the wall and leave the floor clear for playing in this outrageous room.
My kids saw a picture of the room the evening before we left, and were too excited to sleep. When we arrived the next evening, even I was too excited to sleep.
Not only did we walk into the crisply cool room with curtains drawn, neon lights glowing, movies and games playing and welcome basket waiting, but we were treated really well.
We had these rooms for 2 nights and left the hotel for only a very short time. The kids watched movies, played the board games, read the books and opened and closed the Murphy beds a few hundred times. We also visited the pools a few times, including for the movie nights.
The room rates for this suites ranges from $359 to $499, and includes daily breakfast. It’s not cheap but includes 2 full hotel rooms, 2 bathrooms and a whole lot of wow. I’d go again in a heartbeat. Learn more HERE.
