City breaks with kids can be lots of fun, with more and more locations offering entertaining experiences geared towards the youngest members of the family. There is also an increasing number of hotels that are so set up for a family visit that your kids simply won’t want to leave. Nichola West rounds up her top five city hotels for families.


Omni Mont-Royal Hotel, Montreal

Young guests at Montreal’s Omni Mont-Royal Hotel receive their own backpack filled with activities and nutritious treats on arrival. The hotel’s kids’ programme helps families get the best out of their visit to the Canadian city, and staff bring milk and cookies to the bedrooms to help kids wind down after a busy day sightseeing.


The Plaza, New York

Opposite Central Park, The Plaza is a luxury hotel that is perfectly situated for exploring the sights of the city; however, it may be hard to get kids to leave. With two themed rooms, the Knights of the Plaza Tower Suite and the Eloise Suite, there are costumes, books, and gift bags which will have kids reliving their favourite literary adventures.


Propeller Island, Berlin

Part art installation, part hotel, kids will delight in the quirky Propeller Island in the centre of Berlin. The upside-down room has chairs and tables hanging from the ceiling, and you sleep in (comfortable) boxes under the floorboards. This is a unique city hotel that kids will never forget.


Swissotel Sydney, Australia

The kids’ rooms at Swissotel Sydney are filled with toys, DVDs, and even a minibar for children. Little ones will adore the tailored décor, special bath toys, and child-sized furniture. With a connecting room to mum and dad, children will love this space set aside just for them.


The Imperial Hotel, Tokyo

Kids (and let’s be honest, grown-ups too) will love the ‘Snoopy Plan’ running at the Imperial Hotel until March 2017. Guests can stay in a special themed room which has Snoopy furniture, bedspreads, and amenities throughout. There’s even a Snoopy-themed bento-box breakfast.
