We get it: finding a convenient home base with enough room and fun to entertain the whole family is a tall order—especially in New York City, where every extra inch comes at a price. We’ve done the legwork and scouted NYC’s best family hotels, whether you’re traveling with a newborn or have toddlers and teens in tow.

TRYP by Wyndham Times Square South

Traveling with more than a family of four (or just in need of some serious personal space)? Unlike most other hotels in NYC, TRYP by Wyndham has oversized rooms that can sleep up to 6 or 8 comfortably thanks to smartly positioned bunk beds and sleeper sofas. Its address near Penn Station also means getting here with suitcases is a breeze if you’re taking the train in—and once you’re settled, most everything is within walking distance, including Times Square, Broadway, and the Empire State Building. That is, if you can drag the kids away from the in-room Nintendo Wii and coloring books.

Novotel New York

For families, there’s a lot to love about the Novotel, and we’re not just talking about its address mere blocks from Times Square. Rooms are stylish and spacious, with enough room to roll in a complimentary crib (if you need one). Plus, the wallet-friendly perks for parents are tenfold: kids 16 and under stay for free when sharing their parent’s room and eat for free at the onsite café. Did we mention the video games corner in the lobby?

Le Parker Meridien

Central Park, the MoMA, and Broadway are all within a three-block radius of Le Parker Meridien. When the brood would rather hang back at the hotel, there’s much in store. Catch some cartoons while riding the elevator up to the rooftop pool, and then back down again for some fun-for-the-whole-gang grub at the popular Burger Joint. Rooms are spacious (and complimentary cribs are available) but upgrade to a suite and you’ll get pullout sofas and even more breathing room. Or, go that extra step with the Family & Fun package, which includes credit towards Burger Joint as well as a free mani-pedi session at the spa for girls 10 and under.

Omni Berkshire Place

The Omni is a big sell for its unbeatable location in Midtown East, near some of the city’s biggest sights including Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, the MoMA, and Fifth Avenue. The clientele is a little business-centric, but don't be deterred—there’s plenty here to impress the wee ones thanks to the complimentary Omni Kids Crew program. At check-in, under-12s get a backpack stocked with stickers, crayons, and games, followed by a milk-and-cookie surprise at turndown. If you're a mom planning a girl’s weekend with your daughter (or just an afternoon away from the guys) The American Girl Dream Package includes a visit to American Girl Place two blocks away and a doll-size bed to bring home.

Gansevoort Meatpacking

The Meatpacking District, Manhattan’s nightlife mecca, might not be best known for its family-friendly vibes, but the Gansevoort has a few tricks up its sleeve. Oversize rooms and a heated rooftop pool with a lifeguard on duty are two of family-friendly highlights, but there's more. Couples with young babies will be relieved to find free wipes, diapers, strollers, and cribs on offer, while tweens and teens are handed Nintendo Wiis and PSPs for the duration of their stay. (We also love the room service kid’s menu.)

Ink48, a Kimpton Hotel

Ink48 is on the farther end of Hell’s Kitchen and a bit of a trek to central Manhattan, but it's close to the standout Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum. Once you settle down for the night (or day), they’ve got everything taken care of. Animal-print bathrobes and hula hoops up the fun-factor for little ones. Family pets are welcome, and even if you didn’t bring one, the hotel will loan you a pet goldfish to help keep the gang company. And parents, listen up: everything from strollers to scooters, cribs, and safety kits are here to make your stay that much more stress-free.

Lotte New York Palace

When it comes to the holidays, few cities are more magical for a family getaway than NYC. Treat the whole gang with a stay at the glamorous Lotte New York Palace, an Italianate landmark hotel that overlooks St. Patrick's Cathedral. Every holiday, the hotel offers discounts to the Christmas Spectacular show at Radio City (along with a few extra goodies). And for little girls, the Palace Princess package is the next best thing to Disney World—a royal costume, cookies, and a miniature bathrobe and slippers will be waiting in your room upon arrival, along with a discounted mani-pedi at the spa (Moms, you're invited, too!).
