When your child is in the hospital, deciding where you and your family are going to sleep can be a very important decision.

For parents or guardians who want to remain close by, there is a space in most rooms for one person and some additional rooms for a second person (ICU families only) to sleep in the hospital.

For families coming from more than 50 miles away, our Patient Family Housing Program provides affordable accommodations in a home-like environment. 

Other options, such as Hospitality Homes or the Ronald McDonald House (Brookline) / Ronald McDonald House (Charlestown) also provide free or low-cost accommodations for families whose children are being treated at Boston Children's Hospital.

There are also many local hotels and inns that offer discounts to families whose children are in the hospital. Short-term rentals may also be a good solution if you need to stay in the Boston area for a longer period of time.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
