Stayed at the Hampton Inn on 8th and 51st. Very good for families. There 2 weeks ago and saw many families. Stayed in a room with 2 queen sized beds as there were 3 of us. Location good to walk to Central Park which all would enjoy the small zoo. Free breakfast also. Sure they have good rates in Feb.

We stayed in the Buckingham Hotel on 6th Ave and 57th St.. It is an apartment building being converted to hotel suites. It NOT deluxe, has no coffee shop or room service, but the suites are much larger than any room I've ever had in NYC. The kitchenette is a plus if the kids eat breakfast at 7 a.m.

I posted a trip report that contains a review of the hotel:

The best/biggest rooms are "G" and then "K." I posted a more extensive review on tripadvisor, although it is not the most recent.

I'd look into the Affinia chain. Most of these hotels are suites - with a small kitchen. It's great for a family, and they are generally larger than other hotel rooms in New York. I'm heading to New York in Feb., and found many of the Affinias had rooms in the 225-300 range, which I think is a pretty good deal.

Is your family ok with 2 beds, or do you need something more? Some of the all suite hotels have 2 beds (queens or doubles) and a pull-out sofa in the living area.

There's also the Double Tree Suites in Times Square, and the Embassy Suites near the financial district. I'd definitely recommend a suite hotel as it will give you a little more space.

Our family loved the Blakely two years ago during Spring Break. We had two Queens in a separate bedroom with an adjacent sitting/tv area including a couch where our son slept. The kitchenette is great for left-overs and snacks with a large updated bathroom. This is a small property in a great location..very good service with lots of good neighborhood restaurants nearby.

There are now a lot of suite hotels where the rooms are like apartments, some studios, some 1, some 2 bedroom units. The are some of the nicest and good value. You will sometimes see better prices on websites like and than on the Affinia website so double check.

others include

There is currently a special for Jan/Feb. at the Buckingham, mentioned by kswl, on

Best Western Hospitality
San Carlos
Embassy Suites

You have received lots of options by others so I'll just add here is the Milburn hotel site on the upper west side, good value for your $'s.

We also loved the Embassy Suites which I think may be a few more $'s but you do get their fabulous breakfast included in the cost.

Good luck and enjoy NYC.

We liked the Embassy Suites. Lots of room, with one large bedroom plus a living room, a mini-bar, and two TVs. Their hot and cold breakfast buffet is unbeatable.

You already have many good suggestions. Here's one more: The Residence Inn Times Square. It's within walking distance of Times Square but not in the crush. They offer free breakfast and free light meals during the week around 5 p.m. or so, which is an attractive option for families with young kids, especially since you usually end up eating out for lunch.They also have suite rooms with kitchenettes, and it is across from Bryant Park.
