If you’re thinking about staying downtown with your kids on your trip to New Orleans, you want to make sure the hotel has kid-friendly amenities to keep them happy during your family’s stay. Here are several examples of kid-friendly amenities at a variety of downtown hotels for you to choose from.

Best Pools for Kids

Several downtown hotels in New Orleans offer great pools for your kids to take a refreshing dip after a long day of seeing the sights or for parents to simply relax a bit. The Holiday Inn Superdome also has its own great outdoor pool, but this one is located on the rooftop which gives kids a great view of the city while they play.

Best Pet-friendly Hotels

Sometimes bringing the whole family includes bringing the beloved family pet. A few of New Orleans’ downtown hotels allow you to bring with you a family member you may often leave at home on vacation, who your kids will love the chance to play with when they get back to the hotel room. The Old No. 77 Hotel has a policy that allows you to bring your pet for your stay (there is a reasonable $45 pet fee once per stay) – they even have a pet room service menu and a treat upon admission. Staybridge Suites New Orleans is another pet-friendly hotel your kids will appreciate. Here are a few more pet-friendly hotels in New Orleans.

Best Free Wi-Fi

Many kids these days entertain themselves with mobile devices and laptops, and free Wi-Fi comes in handy to help them play their games, watch movies, and otherwise enjoy the Internet. The Best Western Plus St. Christopher Hotel has a great free Wi-Fi policy, as does The Pelham Hotel, which also boasts a high-definition TV in the rooms. The Old No. 77 and Staybridge Suites offer free Wi-Fi as well.  All of these hotels are located just outside the French Quarter, so perfect for kids.

Best Suites and Package Deals

Sometimes taking care of the whole family means treating them to a hotel suite or special package deals that give you more bang for your buck during your stay in New Orleans. All hotels frequently have special offers for guests, such as discounts for certain times of year (particularly the summer), and discounts for booking in advance.

You and your kids will love any one of these kid-friendly downtown New Orleans hotels. Book today to start planning your dream vacation as soon as possible.
