Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in New York City (NYC)

Visiting the Big Apple? Here are some best hotels for kids in NYC, as recommended by Trekaroo families.

Best Family-Friendly Hotel in NYC (Editor’s Choice) – Hotel Beacon

For our last vacation hooray this summer, we stayed at the Hotel Beacon on the Upper West Side. I was blown away! I have a 2 year old son, so I wanted to stay in the Upper West Side to make it easy to get to the Children’s Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, and more. The Hotel Beacon was within easy walking distance to all the mentioned attractions and the price just made it all the better.

What’s to love

  • Location, location, location (top NYC family attraction within walking distance, easy subway access, grocery store across the street, yummy restaurants all around)
  • Newly renovated large suites (bathrooms are separate and not attached to bedrooms)
  • Fully equipped kitchens in all rooms (standard and suites)
  • Price ($245 for a one-bedroom suite Sun/Mon, $295/night Tue-Sat)
  • Service

What’s not to love

  • The fact that it was sold out when we wanted to extend our stay. Bummer!

For my full review, go to Hotel Beacon. To check on availability and current rates at the Hotel Beacon.

    I do love the Beacon and have stayed there twice. Its a great location and so close to a major subway stop.. so good choice! I am traveling to NYC next month and want to stay closer to the village so I am trying to find a decent NYC Hotel to try.. any suggestions?? I have been looking on City Maps to see what is around everything because I really staying near a drugstore (I find I always need something). So let me know what you think.
