Making a trip to Long Island with the kids? Here’s some tips to help you pick a kid-friendly hotel that will save you money on kids, pets, and fun!
Residence Inn Marriott Long Island Hauppauge
What better place to stay with children in Long Island, New York than at a hotel that doesn’t really look like a hotel? That’s right, the Residence Inn Marriott looks just like home from the outside, so it’s not as foreboding to the kids upon arrival. But the hospitality doesn’t stop there – kids can bring a pet along to keep them company, as the hotel is pet-friendly as well. There’s a complimentary breakfast every morning to accommodate the picky taste buds of kids; there’s both hot and cold buffets to choose from, including waffles, fun cereals, and scrambled eggs. And for mom and dad, there’s free wireless internet access in the bedrooms. It doesn’t get any better than this in Long Island!
Guest rooms here begin at $189.00 per night and are designed to look like a real living room, so the kids won’t have any trouble adjusting. If they get bored, they can head down to the indoor pool and hot tub for some splashy fun.
The Residence Inn Marriott is located within 20 miles of Atlantis Marine World Aquarium, which is sure to provide the kids with even more fun yet!
Sheraton Long Island Hotel
At the Sheraton Long Island, kids under the age of 18 stay for free. They can bring along their pet as well, so long as they don’t weigh in over 80 pounds. If you’re traveling with a child that still sleeps in a crib, you can ring up room service and request a complimentary crib. If there aren’t enough beds in the room to accommodate all your children, you can request a rollaway bed for $20.00 per night. If the kids get bored, the Sheraton has a great snack shop that offers freshly baked snacks as well as regularly packaged goodies, cappuccinos, espressos, and gifts.
Rooms here start around $169.00 per night, and are furnished elegantly but without being fussy.
