City hotels for families

City hotels for families

Do you know the problem, you are going on vacation with your family, but can´t find the suitable accommondation for your family? I put together a few hotels you can use for your next trip.

Recently a lot of people traveling with their children asked me to look for family friendly hotels. At first, I thought it’d be an easy task, but turned out harder than expected.

The Requirements

As for me, I don’t have children. That often makes it less easy to feel and understand the expectations a traveling family has when looking for family friendly hotels. I remember traveling with my family to nice and fun hotels. However, I was not aware that not every hotel welcomes families with open arms.

If you are looking for hotels for beach breaks, you’ll find many good and well-equipped hotels. Once you are staying in places like Miami, New York etc. You will be challenged with different obstacles. Obstacles like a baby cot, two beds, a big room, maybe a babysitter service, pools, a playground, etc.

Finding a family friendly hotel in major cities are a struggle for every family. And that is why I have put the below list together.

Please be aware, that this is list is based on my experiences at the time of writing. Inventories are subject to change.



Many travellers visit Miami often without children. Therefore, it is easy to find a nice, cheap place at a good location. A hotel like the Ocean Five Hotel located at the ocean drive.

Visiting Miami with small children, on the other hand requires a different spot. I suppose one would like to be close to the sea, have nearby possibilities to go out for lunches and dinners, babysitter service, included breakfasts. If traveling with two children, it makes sense to look for rooms equipped with at least two queen size beds. Depending on the duration of your stay a bed sofa would be enough though.

putting these requirements into my search I reached a limit in my knowledge, because i usually look for the cheapest backpacker option at the most central or best party location. And of course, i did not know where to begin in Miami.

Eventually I put together this list for family friendly hotels in Miami:

  1. The palms hotel & spa****
  2. The Grand Beach hotel****
  3. Casa Faena Miami Beach****
  4. Bal Harbour Quarzo Hotel****
  5. Red South Beach Resort***

New York City

New York city is a tough nut to crack. Hhotels are usually very high in the price.



Visiting Montreal is a great idea when visiting Canada’s east coast. It’s a beautiful city featuring a lot to experience, such as arts, history and culture.

Staying there for a longer time with children may lead you again to the struggle of searching for family friendly hotels.
