Best New York Hotels for Families with Babies & Toddlers

New York Hotels for Families

While it certainly won’t be like your previous, pre-baby trips to New York, taking a baby to New York City is more fun than you might think. Your shoe shopping and Cosmopolitan consumption will likely wane in favor of walks in the park and fancy cupcakes. But, if you love New York, you’ll still love New York with a baby.

And while on previous trips to New York you may have been ok with couch surfing, hostel diving, or staying in a hotel that’s off the beaten path, chances are you’d rather keep things comfortable for yourselves and baby while you’re taking a break from exploring. As a rule, NYC hotel rooms are notoriously tiny and outrageously expensive, but there are New York hotels for families at every price point.

The Big Apple is totally doable for a family with a baby or toddler in tow; here are five hotels that’ll welcome your tiny traveler…

Westin Grand Central Station, NYC

The Westin New York Grand Central

Steps from the UN, steps from the Chrysler Building, and next to several easy family-friendly delis and a 24hr Walgreens, The Westin New York Grand Central is a newer and comfortable hotel with good sized rooms that are bigger than the New York average in addition to being clean and renovated. There’s a fee for WiFi. But once you dive into their “Heavenly” bed, you’ll probably crash before logging into Facebook anyway. We had our mini-bar cleared out so we had full run of the little fridge. You could probably squeeze in a few things around the teeny vodka bottles in a pinch.

New york hotels for families
The Mark Hotel, NYC

The Mark

If your budget is a little more, shall we say, flexible, a stay at The Mark on the Upper East Side will definitely welcome you a little differently — with a branded Maclaren stroller, for a start. Guests at The Mark traveling with children aged between six months and five years can access the strollers, as well as take advantage of their Movie Night menus of DVDs and theater-style snacks and plan a picnic in the park with a ‘lunch-to-go’ prepared  by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The Mark is across the street from Central Park and steps from many museums and galleries including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Guggenheim. Small babies that are happy to ride in strollers are great museum guests. Take advantage of that while you can!

    Skype has launched its internet-based buyer beta towards
    the entire world, soon after introducing it generally within the U.S.
    and U.K. previous this month. Skype for Web also now can handle Chromebook and Linux for immediate messaging
    interaction (no voice and video yet, individuals call for a plug-in installing).

    The increase in the beta provides assistance for an extended set of spoken languages to help bolster that international functionality
