Looking to go to New York Sept 04 and need to think about booking very soon. We will be taking our dd whoe will be a year old that month. We have loads of airmiles so flights will be paid for through that. Dont fancy anything like the Plaza, or anything to traditional. So far I have looked at :
Casablanca
Morgans
Southgate Tower Hotel
Any reccomendations??

Why don't you look at these sites they all give good reviews and include lots of customer feedback. Some of them have child friendly as one of the criteria.

citysearch

fodors

tripadvisor

In terms of prices I have found quikbook to be the cheapest.

Good luck - I hope you find something you like.

By the way all the Ian Schragger hotels sell themselves as being child friendly - I really liked the look of the Royalton.

I have city search & I do like Shrager hotels,although frequented by what I call the painful people!! I like Sanderson here, but Shragers dont seem to be classed as family friendly.

Melsy
If you go to the ianschrager home page here and click on kids you get the groups policy for children which I thought was quite impressive. Havent stayed there with kids though so can't tell whether they deliver what they promise!!

Funny how the website city search says it isnt and they seem more than geared up. I might phone them there morgans, Royalton & Paramount. See how they come accross on the phone about it.

The Four Seasons is great for kids. They have their own check in desk, mini bathrobes and milk and cookies delivered to your room, free, 5 mins after check in!

Our children were treated like royalty and had a brilliant time, was a while ago though.

I just plugged in the dates for four seasons and there is no availability. Just my kind of place, although would like to spend a little less per night. Just looking at your next link.

Always worth trying the booking agents as they often have the rooms on allocation and they can be cheaper than booking direct. Try putting Four seasons New York, into google and you get lots of hotel booking agents.

Melsy, are you in london? Why not do a house swap? There are always lots of people on www.craigslist.org (look for the london site) from nyc looking for places in england.
