Traveling with children can be a challenge. Kids have special needs and wants when they are on vacation or stuck in a hotel somewhere, even in the most exciting of world cities – New York. It is not surprising to know that there are New York City Hotels that are very kid friendly and some of them are five star top of the line hotels. When choosing a New York hotel that caters to the whims of kids, you will hear less of “I’m bored” and more of “what are we going to do next?”
One New York hotel that is especially accommodating to kids of all ages is the Plaza Hotel. The Plaza is a virtual wonderland for kids; the staff is welcoming and will go to great lengths to make their smallest guests stay at the hotel more pleasant. There are special teas scheduled at The Plaza that are geared toward children who are staying in the hotel. There is the Teddy Bear Tea where children are encouraged to attend and bring their favorite Teddy Bear for a formal sit down tea and crumpets. It is a fabulous event each week that really gives the child guest something to look forward to. There are also day spa visits that are designed especially for the smallest members of the jet set. Other seasonal events are scheduled throughout the year at the Plaza for the little people on its guest list as well.
The Waldorf Astoria is another five star hotel that is fabulous and kid friendly. There are babysitting services on each floor of the hotel so that mom and dad can have a day or evening out while the children are well kept and happy. All of the personnel who are on the babysitting staff are specially trained and undergo background and other screenings so that you can be assured that your child is in good hands.

The Embassy Suites offer kitchenettes in most rooms, which is great if there are small kids that need bottles warmed or for older kids to keep snacks on hand.

And little ones will feel right at home when you let guest services know that you need a crib to be placed in the room.
