Question: I have a conference to attend at the Renaissance on Madison Street in June. I will be bringing my husband and 3 yr old daughter and my sister will be flying in from New Jersey to join us. Can you recommend a hotel or apartment close to the Renaissance that could reasonably accommodate three adults and a small child in one suite/room/unit? Thank you!
Answer: The best option for you would be the Hotel Vintage. Located just a block from the Renaissance, they offer a Deluxe Queen room with two queen beds and a pull-out sofa bed. The hotel has a wine theme, with rooms named for local wineries and a nightly complimentary wine bar. It’s part of the Kimpton boutique hotel chain, which is known for being extremely pet and kid-friendly, while retaining chic appeal for the grown-ups; families are greeted with fresh cookies, milk, and even a scavenger hunt for kids to complete.
The Crowne Plaza is also within two blocks of the Renaissance, and they offer double queen and double full option rooms. Their suites have two doubles, with a pull-out couch in the living area. The Renaissance also offer double rooms, with two full beds. Both the Renaissance and Crowne Plaza are generally geared more toward business travelers than families, however, which is why I recommend Hotel Vintage.
