Paris Is a Welcoming Destination When You're Traveling En Famille

Traveling with the family is what memories are made of. True ? To help make sure that those memories are good ones, I’ve put together this list of family friendly Paris hotels, like Le Meurice Hotel Paris, that will get you off on the right foot. Accommodations set the tone for your vacation experience, after all. Making sure that Mom, Dad and the kids are all comfortable and like the neighborhood goes a long ways in assuring that the rest of the vacation will be smooth and stress-free.

Here you’ll find accommodations that offer a homey type of feel. A kitchenette and a livingroom are great for gathering the family together in the morning, for coffee and croissants or in the afternoon after a day of sightseeing and museums. Luxury hotels can also be a good way to go. Many of the best ones in the city have a sort of friendly competition with each other about who welcomes families the best, particularly making the kids feel as valued as guests as their parents. If you’re not staying at a palace hotel, services such as babysitting may still be offered. Above all, I’ve kept to the city center as that’s where the easy bus and metro lines are. Public transportation in Paris can be a fun game or sport for the kids. So be sure to get them on board !
