A Family-Friendly City Break Like No Other
– with The Hotel @ Times Square -
With the Muppets taking the Big Apple by storm, free events for kids, The Hotel @ Times Square’s fully kitted-out family suites and free stays for children under 12, New York City offers an experience unlike any other for adventurous tykes and frugal folks this half-term and summer holiday. Take your pick from:
Join The Muppets This June Half-Term
To coincide with The Muppets DVD release (11 June), Kermit, Miss Piggy and co. have just been announced as this year’s official NYC Family Ambassadors. So why not stay on trend, gain some brownie points with the little ones and take a trip to the magical What-Not Workshop at the iconic FAO Schwartz, where kids of all ages can design and create their very own Muppet or monster.
A family suite, based on two adults and two children sharing, over the June half-term starts from $284.99 per room (£88 per adult per night).
Head Stateside This Summer Holiday
Summer is a great time to explore NYC with kids in tow as the Big Apple puts on an array of FREE family-friendly events. From June to August, steer clear of expensive Broadway shows and take advantage of the FREE Central Park SummerStage Kids Series, which features artists from around the world performing music, dance, circus, spoken word and more for the little ones.
Summer Streets is another great child-friendly initiative which guarantees, for three Saturdays in August, complete safety and hassle-free strolling as the sounds of honking horns are replaced with the cling-cling of bicycle bells. From 7am to 1pm, and from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, Park Avenue and connecting streets will be closed to traffic and open to the wondering public. Check out the FREE Summer Streets events, which offer entertainment for the whole family!
A family suite, based on two adults and two children sharing, throughout August starts from $294.99 per room (£91 per adult per night).
Centrally located between Times Square and Fifth Avenue, The Hotel @ Times Square is a short walk from many fantastic family attractions. With free stays for children aged 12 and under as well as free continental breakfast and wi-fi, this cheap yet chic hotel has plenty of amenities in place for making a stay with the sprogs run as smoothly as possible.
Fewer rooms in the top floors provide added space for larger bookings and deluxe family suites include two connecting rooms with one king and one queen bed, a shared bathroom, microwave oven and refrigerator – perfect for tots’ fussy taste buds.
