Boston with the Family: Hotels That Make Your Vacation a Dream

 Kids are synonymous with stress, especially when you travel. Parents stress about every last detail from what to pack  to what to leave behind. Younger kids need such things as strollers and car seats, but do they have to be your stroller or car seat? And older kids want their favorites- technology, books, and toys. No one wants to be stuck in a hotel that makes it hard to access area attractions or snubs the kids. These Boston Hotels may not provide a break from parenting, but they take the stress away from travel with kids; turning your trip into the vacation you desire. Offering everything from strollers to toys, your load will be lightened while your kids will be pleasantly pampered. Boston is chock full of fabulous family friendly hotels. Spend your time in Boston at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf where your harbor-side location leaves you mere minutes away from many of Boston's best sites, and makes life easy for families who want to be on the go. Or indulge the family at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common where its signature service extends to the children as well. Special treats like a scavenger hunt through the hotel and a welcome gift are just two ways the Ritz makes a stay fun for the kids. Looking for a little "me time"?  Most hotels offer babysitting services, just be sure to book ahead.
