Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Times Square

View all Times Square Hotels

A team of Oyster reporters spent weeks exploring 193 hotels in New York. We slept in the beds, ate in the restaurants, tested the service, and lounged by the pools, all with an eye toward selecting the most distinguished properties. Here's a list of some of our favorite kid-friendly hotels in Times Square.

  1. Big rooms with two queen beds, Nintendo Game Cube video games (available at $6.95 per hour), and microwaves make the Hilton Garden Inn a solid family pick. It's conveniently located near some of New York's best family attractions, including Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, M&M World, and Toys R Us, one of the world's largest toy stores.

  2. Large rooms, special kids’ menus, an on-site movie theater, and plenty of nearby attractions make the Hilton a great choice for families. Kids stay free in rooms with their parents, and standard and deluxe rooms range from 330 to 360 square feet -- much larger than the typical hotel room in New York City.

  3. The Marriott Marquis has kid-friendly staples such as comfortably spacious rooms, free cribs and rollaway beds, and a kids menu at the main restaurant, Encore. But as a bonus, it also has fun space-age elevator pods that zip up and down the 49-story lobby.

  4. As a part of the kid-friendly Kimpton chain, the Muse makes efforts to make pint-sized guests feel welcome. Children get a special gift at check-in, and can borrow a child-size animal-print robe (just like mom and dad's). The staff will set up a crib or child-proof a room for no additional charge, and rooms with two double beds are available.
