Family Vacation Critic Names 2016's Top-Rated Family Hotels

The top-rated family hotels according to Family Vacation Critic.

— -- Summer's almost here and parents everywhere are in the midst of planning the "perfect" summer vacation. The hotel is a crucial part of any trip, and perhaps the most important part of a family vacation. Will there be enough activities for the kids? What's the pool like? What kind of food is served in the hotel restaurants?

Family Vacation Critic has just released its annual Best Hotels for Families list which incorporates not only the opinions of their members but has also been visited by an employee of the site.
