Conrad New York Midtown, a 562-room luxury hotel located in the heart of Manhattan, recently launched two family-friendly “Little Conrad Suites” featuring SmarterKids toys, a teacher-tested and approved brand of Excelligence Learning Corporation, just in time for children heading back to school and looking to continue learning through play while traveling.

“Our unique location and residential-style suite product lend itself perfectly to family travel and for those looking to feel inspired during their stay,” said Boris Guerov, general manager, Conrad New York Midtown. “We are excited to partner with SmarterKids and look forward to building upon this partnership as time goes on. The teacher-approved, superior toys touch on pillars we focus heavily on within our hotel and as part of Conrad Hotels & Resorts, such as art along with mindfulness, creativity and movement.” 

Perfect for younger travelers ages 3 to 10, the hotel transformed one of its premium accommodations, an Apartment Suite, along with a two-bedroom connecting suite into a haven for families traveling with their children. The suite includes an infusion of $10,000 worth of SmarterKids toys and activities, décor, and more, which form strategic creative corners, reading nooks, art areas, and active zones where families will be entertained, create memories, honor mindfulness and more.

Prior to arrival, guests will choose from the complimentary SmarterKids Toy Menu featuring a variety of curated toys, which will be in-suite upon arrival. Once in the suite, families will be surrounded by SmarterKids products allowing opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed while addressing their specific needs and natural interests through engaging play and exploration. Product selection includes a set of three toys for each age group as follows. Additional toys will be available for sale through the hotel or on SmarterKids’ website via a discount code.

  • Ages Two to Four: Self-Regulation Stones, earlySTEM Translucent Stacking Pegs, Grip & Stay Blocks
  • Ages Four and Up: Children’s Yoga Mat + 50 Fun Yoga Activities, Snap Circuit Beginner Electronics, SEL Activities Book: Happiness Journal + Colored Pencils, Imaginary Hand Puppets Kit, 50 Mindfulness Activities
  • Ages Six and Up: Window Suncatchers Kit, Crystal Garden Science Education Kit

The family-approved e-commerce brand, SmarterKids, was inspired by the gap forming for kids who had school disrupted with remote learning during the pandemic. Making way to help at-home and work-from-home parents alike, SmarterKids was born to keep their kids engaged during trying times and beyond, without taking over the role of “teacher.” Curating a wide range of fun, quality products including toys, kits, and systems made specifically for preschool and elementary-aged kids, SmarterKids strives to provide kids of all ages the tools they need to thrive.

Leveraging the expertise of the Teacher Advisory Board and learning professionals, SmarterKids provides innovative input into each toy created and ones selected from trusted name brands. The Learning and Development professionals are experts in the latest research and trends to ensure the toys and kits offered are suited to address the many facets of learning. During the development process at SmarterKids, the team considers factors including kids’ brain connections (neural pathways), different learning styles, and how emotions impact the cognitive process. When kids are having fun, they are more curious and interested in retaining information which is why SmarterKids makes sure “fun” is at the core of every product made or sold.  conrad new york midtown
