Multigenerational

Family Travel Agent recently found family travel will continue to grow this year, as 81 percent of families expressed their likelihood of traveling in 2024. Of that group, more than 50 percent plan to take part in multigenerational travel. If that multigen travel is taking place in New York City, two hotels, Motto Times Square and Motto Chelsea, prove ideal options.

 

Both properties feature Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton, providing sufficient space and built to enhance the travel experience. With this feature, families can instantly confirm connecting or adjoining hotel rooms — delivering instant peace of mind and allowing for parents, grandparents and kids to enjoy separate spaces or together time as they wish.

Motto Chelsea offers family-friendly experiences, like a holiday market and dog adoption events, alongside area attractions including Chelsea Market, The High Line, The Field House at Chelsea Piers and classes at Kids At Work.

 

Additionally, both Motto by Hilton hotels boast unobstructed views from select rooms, so families can wake up and fall asleep to the Manhattan skyline.
