The Townsend is a nice family friendly hotel. The staff was friendly and welcoming upon arrival. We stayed in the bigger room (suite), it was comfortable for my husband, 1 year old and myself. The hotel provided a crib for us, which was nice. This is a older hotel, not a modern up to date one. The room gets the job done but is dated and dusty. The couch and pillows also spill out feathers everywhere lol .. They are just old. The bathroom is nice but please note no bathtub if you are traveling with little ones. I think if you are traveling with a family, this hotel is a good fit. If you are traveling as a couple or with friends, I would check out the Daxton. I do not recommend Daxton to families as the rooms are tiny. We also traveled with my small dog, this hotel is dog friendly. The pet fee is the highest i have ever seen though. It is higher than the St. Regis and 4 Seasons. Overall is was a good experience. I would give this hotel 4 stars.
