World’s Best Hotels for Families
Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue


From a hotel offering sun and surf amenities to an all-inclusive resort featuring a championship golf course and nightly entertainment, there’s no shortage of family-friendly destinations. TripAdvisor, an online travel review site, recently released its Traveler’s Choice awards for family hotels.

“These Travelers’ Choice award-winners make it easier for parents to find that perfect hotel for their next family trip,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “Travelers can enjoy a host of family-friendly amenities and activities that will keep everyone entertained and without breaking the bank, as these properties are bookable for an average of $219 per night on TripAdvisor.”

Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews from travelers on TripAdvisor gathered over a 12-month period with emphasis placed on reviews marked as a family stay.

With spring break right around the corner, the timing couldn’t be better to check out a few hotels for the entire family to enjoy.
