Finding Family-Friendly Boutique Hotels

Many people prefer the style, intimate atmosphere, and personalized service of a boutique hotel over a large chain-hotel with several hundred rooms.

I opt for boutique hotels too when excellent options are available; however, it’s much more difficult to identify smaller hotels that are kid-friendly since most have limited amenities and do not have the capacity for a long list of family-centric services. There are an increasing number of exceptions like Kimpton Hotels’ KimptonKids program and Affinia Hotels has My Family programs (Chicago, New York, and DC).
