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 The Boston 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.
