SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2016) -  The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai is offering the ultimate sleep-over experience for mini fans, available over the school summer holidays until the Golden Week in October.

A staycation package titled 'Enjoy Magic Moments with Nicholas Bears' brings VIKs (Very Important Kids) a sense of adventure and priceless memories of their hotel stay in Shanghai. The overnight package features a fun afternoon tea inspired by the Nicholas & Bears kids wear brand, including a strawberry Swiss roll, coffee opera cake, chocolate brownies with blood orange mousse and almond dacquoise with cheese mousse and mango jelly.

From the moment of arrival at a dedicated new child-sized check-in, youngsters are welcomed with a Nicholas & Bears bear to cuddle with during their stay -- along with a Ritz Kids amenity kit including a lion backpack and access-all-restaurants bracelet pass for complimentary ice cream anywhere in the hotel.

A 'passport' features a world of fun, privileges and games, along with a map to explore the hotel and earn stamps to receive gifts upon check-out.

With a personalized kids' welcome and special turndown amenities, adjoining rooms are transformed into a camping adventure, complete with a tent, compass, lantern, flashlight, drinking bottle and cuddly lion.

At night, a new Star Gaze experience allows them to look up at an amazing starry night view above their tents as if they were outside, while enjoying a night time treat of milk and cookies.

No Ritz Kids experience would be complete without a goodnight story to tell, and parents can now access a newly launched series of audiobooks on their smartphones via a special turndown card with a QR code -- a perfect end to a campside adventure after a long day of exploration.

The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai is ideally located for summer holiday adventures with kids, located adjacent to the wide spaces of Shanghai Jing'an Park, and only a short walk from the popular Shanghai Nature and History Museum.

In addition to featuring interconnecting rooms available for kids, this family-friendly hotel is home to the award-winning Portman's Restaurant, featuring a children's menu that is sure to please even the fussiest of young diners, with early reservations available from 5:30 p.m.

Ritz Kids Etiquette Classes also ensure little ones are kept occupied and happy. Children aged 7-11 can discover and learn the fascinating theory of social etiquette, including table posture, afternoon tea manners, table conversation & politeness and creativity, with classes led by French etiquette guru Mr. Rué de Bernadac, President of the Académie de Bernadac.
