|Floridays Resort Orlando
||Located near Walt Disney World, this award-winning resort is a pet-friendly, spacious hotel that’s especially well-suited to families. Every room is at least 1,000 square feet, providing enough room for groups of four to sprawl out and recline in, plus it offers a pool that’s straight out of a water park.
||San Diego and Orlando
||This is the closest you’ll ever get to living as a brick toy. Legoland Resort is located just outside of the theme park, Legoland, and it is themed to specific LEGO properties like Pirate, Adventure, and Ninjago – all popular properties with the younger set.
|Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
||Lake Buena Vista, FL
||With an outdoor water recreation area, a steakhouse, and a gym on-site, the Disney Yacht Club (located a hop, skip, and jump from Epcot and Disney World) is as welcoming as it is comfortable. But one of the best perks of the hotel is the supervised children’s activity area, where kids aged 3 to 12 can watch Disney movies and play games while you get some much needed child-free adult time.
||Looking for themed lodging? Fantasyland injects creativity and imagination into all its rooms, with motifs like Hollywood, Roman, Western, Space, Waterpark and Igloo Family to choose from. There are also luxury-themed rooms to be had here as well – for example, the bed in the Luxury Western room is made out of a wooden wagon.
|Railroad Car Hotels
||Across the country, there are various B&Bs and hotels built out of old, refurbished railroad train cars that travelers can visit. Oddinns.com has a great list of what’s available where, as each is charming in its own way. For example, look closely, and you’ll find old train stations that have been converted into hotels. It’s a unique way to experience two contrasting worlds.
|Adobe Grand Villas
||This western-themed hotel, located in the heart of the West’s Red Rock Canyons, is a blast from the past. Every room, including the lobby, is outfitted to look like you’re walking straight into the past, including areas with names like Cactus Flower and the Sagebrush Villa.
|Loews Portofino Bay Hotel
||Universal Orlando Resort
||You’ll find kids rooms here keyed to the film Despicable Me, complete with pictures of the adorable yellow Minions and more. Of course, adults can also find a range of upscale lodging options to choose from as well.
||Speaking of famous cartoon characters being featured at hotels, there’s a Mickey Mouse Penthouse suite you can visit in Disneyland. It’s great for all ages, and it’s decorated as if it were built for Mickey himself. Mind you, prices for a stay may be somewhat steep.
|Woodloch Pines Resort
||Woodlock Pines is considered one of the best family resorts in the Poconos thanks to its friendly staff and a wide variety of activities on offer for families. From rock climbing to indoor and outdoor pools, bumper cars, go-karts, kayaking, snow tubing, ice skating and more, there’s plenty to do in and around the resort.
||This hotel chain, which can be found across the U.S., offers myriad options that cater to toddlers and young kids. At various resorts, for example, kids can receive a goldfish on-demand in their hotel room (the hotel feeds the fish), as well as enjoy bunk beds, animal print bathrobes, hula-hoops in fitness centers, and babysitters as needed to boot.
