The Top Family Getaway Hotels
The secret to a successful family getaway starts at your home away from home: Pick the right family-friendly hotel, where everybody’s happy, and the rest of the vacation has a way of falling into place. The family hotels that most captured our reader’s imaginations in our AFAR Travelers’ Choice Hotel Awards cater to guests of all ages—think kid-friendly dining options, amenities, and activities—without forgoing attention to the quality time, cuisine, and style that downtime-deprived parents crave. And they’re almost all just a short flight or drive from home.

    1. FAIRMONT BANFF SPRINGS, BANFF, CANADA
    Canada’s Fairmont Banff Springs feels for all the world like an elegant and ancient castle, albeit one with all the modern conveniences. Rooms in the main building come with quirky period details such as chandeliers and crown molding; those in the Stanley Thompson wing (the old staff quarters) are more spacious and a solid bet for families—who will also enjoy the kids’ club packed with activities such as campouts, science projects, and arts and crafts. Foodies will not be disappointed: The hotel has 13 different restaurants, cafés, and bars. So many choices, in fact, that guests are issued with a food guide upon check-in to help them make the most of the hotel’s offerings.
