Best hotel in Manhattan for family of 4?...

Hello.

This will be our first family trip to New York City and am looking for advice on hotels. I gotta admit, looking at all the hotels available is pretty daunting compared to our other travels. Anyway, we have two boys (8 and 10) and we are looking for a hotel in Manhattan that is close to the Rockefeller Center, Chrysler building, Central Park and access to a subway. Does a place like this exist ? :) We will be staying for 3 nights in mid-October and have no problem spending an extra buck(s) for a place that checks all the boxes. Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, there are many hotels in that area that have rooms for 4 and all have access to the subway. Can we assume that the boys can share a bed?

If you'd like some suggestions about which ones might be best for you, provide your exact dates (prices fluctuate even within the same general time period) and target budget per night. It's hard to gauge whether you want the most affordable decent option that meets your criteria, or whether you want to have a nicer hotel and possibly spend more.

Do you have preference for bed size? Are you fine with sharing two doubles? Or do parents really need a queen sized bed?

Family of 4 w 2 boys (8 and 6) staying at Affinia 50 (2 queen beds) this weekend. Prices were very reasonable and close to subway and Manhattan attractions. Good luck with your search!

The dates that we will be there are Friday, October 3rd through the 6th (3 nights). Two queen beds would be adequate and we would really like a small lounge area if possible. Our budget per night is $600. Thanks for any input....

We have booked the Doubletree Suites in Times Square for our upcoming NYC trip with our granddaughter,

as we have found with kids it is nice to have a 2-room suite. Kids love the excitement of Times Square,

and it is close enough to walk to the places you mentioned. Also well within your budget (especially with

AAA or other discount).

New Hyatt Times Square, Hilton Imes Square, Hampton Inn Times Square North, Hilton Garden Inn Times Square all have rooms with 2 queens. For a suite with separate sitting room, in addition to the Doubletree Suites, AKA Times Square, Residence Inn Times Square, Residence InnCentral Park, the Blakely, the San Carlos are some others.

I am also trying to book a family of 4 in Midtown. I'm looking at the Fitzpatrick hotels because they have queen beds, and the Fitzpatrick Manhattan has reasonable suites. Does anyone have an opinion on these hotels? I want a nice place in a central location but can't spend a fortune. Thanks.

We will be going to NYC in 3 days and will be staying at Hotel Beacon on Broadway near Central Park with two teens, they have 1 and 2 bedroom suites and get excellent reviews.Sounds very promising and we got a reasonable rate. 2 bedroom suites rates need to be requested by email. Will post a review after our trip .

I am planning a trip Oct16-19 and would like to be in walking distance of most attractions. Would like to stay at Double tree times square but with flight and room for 4, it's going to be almost 900 a person! I'd like somewhere near that with much better rates. Any suggestions?

Hello,

First up, you're better off posting your own thread. Secondly, you need to specify a nightly budget expectation for hotel only - separate from your flights - as the locals cannot compare package rates.

For our family of four our favorites are the one-bedroom suites at the Affinia Dumont and Affinia 50 -both good locations near subway and lots of restaurants in walking distance. Also liked the one-bedroom suites at the Blakely.
