For family stays in the city, there are more than a few hotels to choose from. Depending on your locations and
interests while visiting New York City, you have your work cut out for you when it comes to booking. Scan your favorite sites and apps for a family-centric deal, like The Chatwal, New York’s family package. If you’re looking for accommodations that lend to the little ones and adults while showcasing the city’s more touristy attractions and theatrics, The Chatwal has a few tricks up its sleeve.
One of the biggest draws for families to The Chatwal Hotel is its central location. Right in the heart of Manhattan, guests have easy access to all the hits: Rockefeller Center, the Theater District, Bryant Park and a slew of restaurant and shopping options.
While surrounded by some of the most-visited locales in the city, the hotel isn’t your average family stay. The leisure-seekers in the family can unwind with a treatment at the Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden or chow-down in style at the famous Lambs Club Restaurant.
Now, back to the deals and family-friendly amenities.
With the Family is a Package Deal, families receive 25 percent discounts on a second room for the kids after booking for parents. The kids (up to 12 years old) even eat for free, with the Global Excursion package. Sit back with some popcorn and enjoy family movie night, or get creative and put on a show of your own in the in-room children’s puppet theater.
The one-bedroom suite collection is a great way to enjoy family time and your privacy. Choose your rooms and unpack, or spread out in the separate living area — complete with a queen-sized murphy bed. Store snacks and drinks in the in-suite kitchenette or scope out the fully stocked maxi bar for later. Another fun amenity for kids, the steamer trunk is available to borrow for kids looking to play dress up with costumes ready for Aladdin-themed fun, or Frozen reenactments.
If you need a bit more room to breathe, The Chatwal’s signature terrace suites offer an alfresco dining area where you can enjoy breakfast and coffee with a view. Even if there is a little chill in the air, the heat lamps and fireplaces will come in handy.
Since you won’t spend the whole trip in the hotel room, exploring the city with the family is made even easier with Juan Espinal, resident theater concierge and all-around family attraction expert. Let Juan be your guide and send you a family-friendly itinerary. Once you hit the streets, the kids can use their own Margherita Missoni backpack, including a travel journal. For the real little ones, or ViBabies, The Chatwal provides an infant tub, Honest Co. toiletries and even a stuffed animal. The package is available April 1–Sept. 4.
