Best family hotels in NYC
For a home away from home take a trip to TRYP. Their condo-style family suites sleep up to eight, with king and queen beds, sleeper sofas, as well as bunk beds. Some rooms even have two bathrooms and they all have separate living areas where the little ones can chill out with HD televisions, a Nintendo Wii and coloring books.
Give your little ones the royal treatment at Omni Berkshire Place. On arrival children get a complimentary rucksack filled with a sticker-book, card games, crayons and binoculars. In the restaurant kids get a menu they can color in, with crayons and an Omni Kids Crew cup. Plus milk and cookies on the first night.
Pint-sized guests at this Hell’s Kitchen hotel are treated to animal print bathrobes, hula hoops, and a pet goldfish to keep them company (your own pets are welcome, too!). Feel free to pack light, the hotel stocks infant and toddler gear including everything from child safety kits and cribs to strollers and scooters.
After receiving an interactive kid’s toy from Seedling, little guys can choose from a collection of movies, books and board games while the older set can camp out with a Nintendo Wii. Adventurous tykes will love to cruise the city on one of the kid-sized bikes. And bedtime will no longer be a struggle, because this one comes with milk and cookies.
From “I Love NY” goodie bags to PlayStations, the Loews Loves Kids program has families completely covered. Tots have their own menus for both The Regency Bar & Grill and in-room dining, and have their pick from a slew of DVDs and books. The hotel also ensures you’re totally baby proofed: cribs, Johnson & Johnson bath products, strollers, Pack ’n Play high chairs, baby bathtub, car seats and bed guards are all provided.
If you thought the trendy Meatpacking District wouldn’t be exactly kid-friendly, we don’t blame you—but the Gansevoort puts that theory to rest. The hotel provides tykes with PSP and Nintendo Wii consoles as well as complimentary cribs, protective bumpers, Pack ’n Play, and disposable diapers. They even have a kid-friendly designer bathtime products and diaper cream Because this is still Meatpacking, after all.
Horse play has never been easier thanks to the Ritz Kids program. The hotel’s concierge will arrange a “white gloved feeding” of the Central Park carriage horses (just across the street), followed by a private ride with blankets and hot chocolate. If your kid prefers the fake pony variety, nab complimentary tickets to hitch a ride on the Central Park Carousel. And perhaps something even mom and dad will want to get in on: a NYC-themed scavenger hunt.
Every member of the family—including the furry ones—are welcome with open arms at the Roxy. The Tribeca spot eliminates any possibility of separation anxiety from Fido by offering a slew of pet-friendly amenities and access to a private park for both pooches and tykes to burn off energy. Don’t have a pet? Tots receive their very own goldfish to care for during their stay.
