Take it from moms and dads everywhere: Keeping the kids happy on the road isn’t always easy. But the right hotel can make a big difference.
A new survey from TripAdvisor shows Vancouver topping the charts in family-friendly hotels. From luxury accommodations to self-catering suites, the city has options that should please even the pickiest travelers in your clan.
Taking home the silver medal for Canada’s best family hotel is Rosellen Suites, a “home away from home” just steps away from Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium and other time-proven kid pleasers in the city.Among travelers’ favorite features: Generous suites with full kitchens and other amenities. While not a full-service hotel, the mid-priced Rosellen Suites scores big points for its hometown feel and quiet, residential location.
Nearby, Times Squares Suites is another spacious family favorite, with full kitchen, separate living room and bedroom and even in-room washer and dryer in its suites. Situated on the quiet end of Robson Street, Times Square is walking distance to both Stanley Park and English Bay and also has a rooftop barbecue area.
Farther afield, the Holiday Inn Express in the historic fishing village of Steveston also won top honors, as did Sundial Boutique Hotel, Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside and Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre in the ski resort community of Whistler.
