Best Family-Friendly Digs for Overnighting in the 'City of Brotherly Love'

Don't let family vacation time intimidate you; travel with the whole crew and stay at a great hotel in Philadelphia that'll make you all happy with your choice. There are so many options, some that keep your budget firmly in mind, while others that allow you to splurge a bit on extras that make a difference for you and yours. Looking to spend time in the company of your kids or relatives without sacrificing privacy with your spouse? Try the Hotel Palomar Philadelphia - a Kimpton Hotel or the Holiday Inn Express Philadelphia Midtown in Philadelphia. Looking for a classic stay with amenities and features you're used to? Why not try the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown? And if luxury and a little pampering are on the agenda, look into options like the Rittenhouse. As you drink in the skyline and the city's sights and sounds, let the whole family create and share the memories from your visit to Philadelphia. Many, if not all of these options are within close proximity to area sights, historical settings, great shopping, a variety of tasty dining options, and many things to see and do. Family friendly hotels can help remove some of the stress of a group trip so you can focus on time with your loved ones, which is often the greatest amenity of all.
