The perfect setting for an unforgettable New York family holiday, the Big Apple offers tonnes of activities, excursions, and entertainment for all ages. Toy stores, parks, and carousels are in abundance, and the choices of places to eat are limitless. 

Our list of family-friendly hotels will feature many spacious suites with amenities fit for kids and adults alike. 24-hour butler service is ideal for a late-night snack, chauffeur-driven luxury cars will fit the whole clan in comfortably, and the magical views of NYC will ensure your luxury holidays to New York are as memorable as can be. 

Kids’ Club at The Four Seasons Hotel

Picnics in Central Park, walks by the Hudson River, the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings in view. These are just some of the things you can expect during your stay at the Four Seasons Hotel New York.

There is plenty to do in the hotel itself, with a kid’s club, fitness centre and spa available, as well as ample dining opportunities, including fabulous restaurants and the option of organising a private meal for you and your family.

Imagine the look on the little ones’ faces when you announce you’re staying at The Central Park Suite, which offers magical views of the park and the Hudson River. You can even enjoy a family breakfast in the comfort of your own living room, sure to set you up for the adventures ahead. 

For the biggest treat of all, the Ty Warner Penthouse boasts 4,300 square feet suite of pure luxury for you and your loved ones to enjoy. A grand piano, spa, TVs, and the most beautiful decor imaginable.

Lots To Do at The Langham New York

If you and your family book a stay at The Langham hotel, you’ll be guaranteed a relaxing and carefree experience.

The location will make planning day trips a breeze; Fifth Avenue for shopping, Empire State Building for sightseeing and Bryant Park for fun-fuelled picnics. The onsite restaurant serves delicious flavours inspired by the French and Italian Riviera, which means there’s plenty of pasta to appeal to even the more discerning mini food critics. With a babysitting service available, parents can treat themselves to a relaxing nightcap at the onsite bar.

The Empire State Penthouse is perfect for a larger family to stay in, with two luxurious king-size bedrooms available. It conveniently offers a private kitchen, living room space and a sizeable comfortable bathroom. Not to mention beguiling views of the New York skyline.

With the spoils of Manhattan on your doorstep, you can plan the perfect family day out and arrive there in the comfort of a Jaguar XJL, provided by the hotel.

Take Centre Stage at The Manhattan at Times Square

For families who love to be at the heart of the hubbub, there’s no place more central than The Manhattan at Times Square. Two blocks away from Broadway, surrounded by family-oriented American-style restaurants and a constant photo opportunity, Times Square is as iconic as it gets in NYC.

You’ll have lots to do, with attractions, museums, and parks all a short yellow taxi ride away - with the hotel itself offering you a comfortable place to rest after a day of fun.

With both the Junior and Presidential Suites providing twinkling city views, you’ll have a choice of modern rooms with first-rate amenities. But we all know you’ll be too busy planning another day of sightseeing to stay indoors for too long.
