Have you always dreamed about visiting New York, but think you might find it difficult traveling to this tourist hub with the kids? There's no reason you can't visit New York with your family, as there are plenty of family-friendly hotels in the city, surrounded by a plethora of family-friendly activities. So, if you had some problems finding family-friendly hotels in the past, here are the best ones in New York.

The Conrad Hotel 

One of the favourites for families is the Conrad Hotel. Providing free cots, infant beds, and even babysitting services onsite, it is certainly a hotel any family with children can consider.

Since the Conrad Hotel is situated to countless well-known landmarks, there is plenty to do outside of the hotel for families. The hotel is within walking distance of Battery Park City, The Statue of Liberty, and even a beautiful beach. What’s not to like for a family holiday?

The Baccarat Hotel and Residences

Another hotel in New York that could be considered by families is the world-famous Baccarat Hotel. Situated in Midtown and only a couple of minutes from Central Park, Times Square, and the Chrysler Building, The Baccarat Hotel and Residences has plenty of activities surrounding it.

Of course, the amenities inside the hotel are most important for families. Like the Conrad Hotel mentioned earlier, The Baccarat Hotel and Residences offers babysitting services, adjoining rooms, free cots, and infant beds. There is even a town car service, pretty useful if the kids are too small to do large amounts of walking.

Homewood Suites East Rutherford

When you want an amazing deal on your New York stay, the Homewood Suites East Rutherford may be the option for you. While it is a little further removed from Times Square and Central Park than the previously mentioned hotels, Homewood Suites East Rutherford are situated near the MetLife Stadium and Meadowlands Exposition Center. The centre provides all types of activities throughout the year, so it could be more interesting for families with children.

Homewood Suites East Rutherford can be the better choice for families with older children. Each of the rooms can be more self-sufficient than most, providing sofa beds, stovetops, microwaves, cookware, and a kitchen. A laundry service and daily housekeeping are also included, useful for families with teens who are not the biggest fans of cleaning!

The Box House Hotel 

Families who prefer more colourful hotels will most certainly enjoy the Box House Hotel in Brooklyn. Situated in Greenpoint and within close distance of Macy’s, Grand Central Terminal, and even the Empire State Building, visiting this hotel gives you access to some of the must-visit places in New York.

The Box House Hotel provides plenty of amenities for families too. Like most family-friendly hotels in New York, The Box House Hotel provides babysitting or childcare services for a surcharge on your hotel bill. Each of the rooms also comes with a fridge, which proves useful if you must keep some formula or milk in the room.

Of course, the last thing mums want to worry about during their vacation is cleaning up after the kids. Fortunately, this is not something mums have to be concerned about when they choose The Box House Hotel, because daily housekeeping services are also included!

The Cambria Hotel New York

Are the kids old enough to enjoy some of the most iconic sights in New York? If so, the family-friendly Cambria Hotel in New York might be the recommended choice for your vacation. The hotel is only a six-minute walk from Broadway and a seven-minute walk from Rockefeller Center. Visiting Times Square will only require nine minutes. So, if the famous sights are the main reasons for your New York journey, the Cambria Hotel will be a great option.

The Cambria Hotel in Midtown is suitable for families with small children as well as teens. Free cots and infant beds can be provided, while premium TV channels are available to keep those teens occupied in the evening. 

How to Choose the Best Family-Friendly Hotel

Choosing the best family-friendly hotel in New York is easier than you might think since there are many hotels which focus on families. Therefore, it is often best to choose your hotel on location, closest to the sites you intend on visiting!
