I just reached Platinum Status. I am planning to take my family, (wife, 2 girls, ages 12 & 10) to Paris and London during the Holidays next year 2017. We will be using two 5 night vacation awards (love the deal especially with the extra 10% from United) for the trip. We plan to fly into Paris and fly out of London. I would love to hear any advice about taking families across the pond and where to stay. We are comfortable with using the Tube and other public transportation and have been to London and Paris without the kids years back. While we will have enough points for 2 Category 9 awards, I would love to hear opinions on places to stay with kids that are not necessarily Cat 9 in Paris and London. Or if we are going to do a Cat 9 - which one is a must for families? Thanks for any advice you may have for us.
