We’d love to be a part of your next great Buffalo family vacation!
Traveling with children is truly an art. You have to know how to keep them occupied while en route, and you need a knack for choosing the right family friendly lodgings for your stay. If you are headed to Buffalo, New York, for a sporting event or some sightseeing, you have plenty of hotel options, but your ultimate choice should meet several criteria to make your stay a memorable one.
Location is key to a fun vacation, according to Lonely Planet. After a long car or plane ride, make it easier on everyone by choosing accommodations close to those activities or events you plan to enjoy during your stay. For example, if you plan to spend a day with the kids at the Buffalo Zoo, choose a hotel that’s just a short drive from Delaware Park. If the Buffalo Museum of Science looms large on your itinerary, you may want to book a hotel to the northeast of the city center.
When traveling with children, comfort means something a bit different than when you are on a couples getaway. You and your spouse might consider a spa-style bath for two to be the ultimate in comfort, but that isn’t very important for busy, excited children. They are most comfortable in accommodations with space to play, both indoors and out. You should look for a hotel with spacious rooms and a lawn where they can run.
A swimming pool is high on the list for most families on vacation. With Fallsview Water Park nearly 20 miles from Buffalo central, it is far more convenient to book accommodations in a hotel with a bright, clean indoor pool and spa, such as the Staybridge Suites Buffalo, an extended stay property, or Hampton Inn Buffalo South, which is also minutes away from the Buffalo Botanical Gardens.
Traveling as a family can be expensive, especially feeding everyone on restaurant fare. One favorite family perk is free breakfast, but check out the menu in advance. If you are like most parents, you want your crew to get a hot meal, so look for a hotel that offers hot breakfast options. Alternatively, choose an extended stay hotel like Staybridge Suites Amherst, which provides fully equipped kitchens. Then, you have the option to cook some of your meals yourself.
