Naperville boasts 18 hotels with a wide array of kid-friendly amenities. The local hotels cater to families with various wants and needs, and local accommodations run from luxurious full-service hotels to comfortable mid-level economic options.

He also said many local hotels have complimentary breakfast options included in their base rates, which is a great money-saving tool for anyone looking to save a little cash during their stay.
