The Best Hotels for Families

Lowell Hotel (luxury)

More like a home than a hotel. Generously sized rooms on upper east side – close to shopping and Museum Mile. Suites have kitchenettes or full-size kitchens. Some have terraces and many have working fireplaces. Service is friendly and second to none. Although there is no pool, babysitting services are available and Central Park is just a block away.

A gem in Lower Manhattan. Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial, Brooklyn Bridge and ferries to the Statue of Liberty are nearby. Subway just out the door. Standard rooms are comfortable and stylish or upgrade to a suite and enjoy extra space with separate sleep and living spaces. Glass-enclosed heated pool is very kid-friendly.

NU Hotel Brooklyn (moderate)

Manhattan is minutes away by subway so you never feel far from the action while exploring funky Brooklyn. Laid-back hotel and the rooms really show off this casual aesthetic. Chalkboards in the bathroom, hammocks, bunk beds, and bikes available for loan all make this feel like a home away from home. Close to subway, shopping, and Barclays Center. Complimentary breakfast and cookies in the lobby. Phone: 718-852-8585 • ReviewsCheck Prices
