Jan 29th 2013 3:41PM I don't see why you think it is such a big deal that some (not all) hotels choose to ban children or why you think there is some "real" motive other than other people actually want a child free, restful vacation. Why don't you just seek out kid friendly places instead of worrying about why certain places do not want your kids there. There is certainly a liability issue when children are around, especially if the place has a pool. And adding children to a swimming pool is always disruptive, period. The point about adults being disruptive may be true, but that also tends to be at a certain type of hotel-- not the smaller, boutique style hotels I seek. You can certainly do research in advance to avoid those places, which I do. But kids are still kids (I have never seen a quiet child in a swimming pool) regardless of where they are. Sorry it's true!
