A trip to London can leave the whole family with memories that will last a lifetime but don’t let your choice of hotel make those memories bad ones. Picking the right hotel to accommodate your little ones can be key to making your vacation a successful one.


Taj 51 Buckingham Gate


Worldwide, Taj properties are known for a commitment to providing luxury accommodations that cater to guests needs. This London property is no exception. The beautifully appointed rooms and suites are located just minutes from Buckingham Palace, making it an ideal home base for your family’s London vacation. With several of the city’s top attractions located nearby you won’t have to worry about wasting precious time — you can get right down to your sightseeing. When you are done exploring the city, the family will appreciate the hotel service geared to create a family-oriented environment. Babysitting services are available upon request and the property’s concierge is ready and willing to schedule private tours in the local area that are great for kids, such as a Harry Potter experience. The hotel will also arrange for in-suite cooking classes from a hotel chef upon request and pending chef availability.


Hotel 41


When you stay in a 5-star accommodation you expect nothing but the best and Hotel 41 delivers with amenities for the entire family. The hotel is ornately decorated and carries a black-and-white theme throughout that is fun and eye-catching — from the black-and-white-tiled flooring in the lobby and similar carpeting in the rooms to the black-and-white bedding and lamps, the design gives it a classic London feel. The Executive Lounge offers round-the-clock snacks, sweets and drinks and guests are encouraged to help themselves. The hotel’s designers thought of everything to ensure your little ones enjoy their London experience as much as you do with special kids menus, special bedding and even child-sized robes and slippers in the rooms. If  mom and dad need some alone time the hotel can even help with its in-house nanny service, which can be customized to meet your specific needs.


Holiday Inn London West


For a great, no-frills stay for a family on a budget, Holiday Inn is ideal. Located about 20 minutes by Tube from the city center (there is a station located just two minutes by foot from the hotel), the Holiday Inn lets families enjoy clean and comfortable accommodations while saving your money for the great activities and experiences London has to offer. Kids eat and stay for free at this property and families can enjoy the indoor pool or the mini gym with its incredible view of the London skyline.
