Thinking of taking your little ones on holiday to New York? Your first consideration is probably finding a child-friendly hotel that doesn’t compromise on luxury. While most hotels will not have a ‘typical’ club for kids in New York, many have programmes and packages to make them feel as welcome as possible during their stay. 

And these packages are so luxurious it’s bound to make the adults jealous. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best luxury hotels for little guests when you visit New York City

Tailor-made for tiny travellers at The Mark

The extravagant and lavish The Mark is particularly geared up for families. Not only does it have a fleet of custom-made Maclaren strollers to use for strolling through Central Park, but little ones are welcomed with bespoke colouring books, stickers, and a selection of high-end toys from the onsite shop. Plus little luxuries like small dressing gowns and room amenities. For older kids aged 10-13, the hotel provides tours of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to cater to their curious minds. 

The ‘Mark’s Slumber Party’ suite is a new addition to the hotel, where kids have their own customised mini tent set up in the room. Families receive a movie to watch, chocolate milk and cookies in the evenings, before waking up to breakfast daily.
