When looking for a hotel for a family holiday in New York, there’s so much to consider. We need to be close to everything to make the most of our time, we want convenience, we want home comforts but we also want to feel like we’re really on holiday.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton, situated in Midtown Manhattan, tick all of these boxes. Its incredible convenience – it’s just around the corner from iconic Macy’s, Bryant Park, and Times Square – is perfectly complimented by a real home-away-from-home atmosphere once you step through the glittering glass doors.
The beautiful glass facade doesn’t just look pretty. Every detail is immaculately designed to be part of a a bigger theme – that the hotel building is a giant, glittering jewellery box; the perfect accessory to the New York’s Garment District. These streets were and are home to some of the world’s most renown designers. You don’t just feel like you’re staying in New York, you feel like you’re part of it.
This nod to the area’s fashion history continues inside with so many small details and design decisions – such as the diamond-themed in-house bar The Heist and the chandeliers dripping with crystals – adding to the magic.
Although the aesthetics of the hotel are luxury, and they have the impeccable customer service and hospitality to match, it’s also incredibly family-friendly. Studio style rooms are available, or opt for one with a separated living area, including TV, sofa and desk. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in all rooms as well as a small fridge to stash the kids’ favourite snacks or drinks.
One of the best features of the hotel is its outdoor space, the kinds of which are hard to come by in New York. The Sky Lawn is a casual bar with a sprawling terrace where you can sit for a bite to eat, watch a movie on their projector on warm summer evenings, or just get out for some fresh air. Although the beautiful Bryant Park is only a stone’s throw away, it’s nice to have the option of getting outside without going outdoors.
Perhaps the most child-delighting part is the breakfast. A truly American affair, you’ll find a huge buffet with hot sausage-and-egg breakfasts, cereals, yoghurt and fruit, classic waffles (not complete without crispy bacon and gloopy maple syrup), and made to order omelette. The perfect way to fuel up before a day out in the city and sure to please even the fussiest of eaters.
It’s all of these little details – the open air summer cinema, the evening drinks to mingle with other travellers, the exceptional service – that make Embassy Suites by Hilton Midtown Manhattan a great choice for families heading to New York. It has everything you could possibly need and then some.
