New York City's annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is the most iconic Thanksgiving event in the U.S. Needless to say it's tough to find a good viewing spot along the parade route in Manhattan, especially for families with young kids who would have a very hard time indeed lining up for the parade hours before it starts. Fortunately, several New York City hotels have packages that include prime parade viewing spots.

Affinia is a brand of boutique hotels with several properties that have great Manhattan locations. Family-friendly features include access to a “Fun-for-Family” chest including board games to use during a family's stay, and a complimentary backpack with a guidebook for kids. Families can also order cribs, strollers and other gear --rubber duckies, too.

Check the Affinia website for New York City specials on Thanksgiving Weekend. Most notable is a Thanksgiving Day Parade Package at the Affinia Manhattan that includes grandstand seats for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This one This one sells out early! (Other options include a Thanksgiving Shopping Package that provides breakfast-to-go early in the morning before the Parade, an official Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ornament, and a shopping discount. Also, a "Miracle on 31st Street" package runs from early November through February and includes ice skating at Bryant Park and in-room holiday cookies and hot chocolate. Meanwhile, The Michelangelo hotel has a location on the parade route on 7th Avenue, and offered a Thanksgiving Parade View Package in 2011.
