KidTripster: Top 10 Hotels for Families in NYC

KidTripster: Top 10 Hotels for Families in NYC

10/Q&A Residential Hotel 70 Pine St. I am a big fan of sites like Airbnb and VRBO that let you rent a residence and live like a local.  But while I love the convenience of having more space and my own kitchen, I often miss things like daily housekeeping, complimentary breakfast, and concierge service.  That’s why I love this hotel with a funny name.  The Q&A Residential Hotel in the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District is half condos, half hotel – giving you the best of both worlds.  Located in one of the city’s great vintage, Art Deco skyscrapers, which just got a $50-million makeover, you get a fully-furnished apartment but with hotel amenities like a fitness center, concierge, complimentary continental breakfast, and housekeeping.  It also offers grocery delivery, if you don’t want to eat out all the time.  Starts at $215/night. KidTripster Tip: Best bookings for families are the 1-bedroom, 1-bedroom + office and 2-bedroom apartments.  Teens may want to check out SoulCycle FiDi around the corner, while toddlers will want to hit the Pearl Street and Imagination Playgrounds, each within a two-minute walk of the hotel....
