It’s almost Father’s Day and if you haven’t decided how you’ll tell Dad how much you appreciate him this year, it’s time to get started. Why not consider a day filled with exciting and thoughtful activities? HotelsByDay has day use hotels in every major city. Here are some ideas featuring Boston, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, and New York City. No matter where you live, day use hotels can make this Father’s Day the most memorable.

Start the day by driving Dad to the city from Framingham, Coral Gables, or Westchester. Have brunch at a perfect spot. Recover from mimosas at your day booking hotel from HotelsByDay. Look at family photos with Dad. In the afternoon, choose from a variety of options we offer below. Return to your hotel to freshen up for the last great event of the day. No overnight stay is necessary.

Let’s look at some of the ways you can create an unforgettable Father’s Day with your Dad.

Father’s Day in Boston

Reserve a hotel with HotelsByDay to provide easy access to your Father’s Day activities. Plan to spend Father’s Day with your Dad in Boston:

Pick him up early and offer a cup of his favorite beverage for the car ride. Then have brunch at Clink in The Liberty Hotel in Boston. This one-time group of prison cells is now a really popular restaurant. The exposed brick, iron-clad walls remind diners of prison—but the food won’t. An open kitchen serves up a modern American brunch menu. Hint: make reservations now to avoid disappointment.

Head over to your hotel. You can opt to stay for just the morning, afternoon (mid-day), or afternoon. Choose a value or luxury option. After your rest, it’s time to enjoy your afternoon activities.

If your Dad loves science, head on over to MIT in Cambridge. The MIT Museum has amazing robots, holograms, kinetic art, and other exhibits that share the latest discovering emerging from MIT’s labs.

If your Dad is more of a sports history buff, check out The Sports Museum on the fifth and sixth floors of the TD Garden.

If your Dad is a diehard Boston Red Sox fan, it might be possible to get tickets to the home game in Fenway Park on Sunday.

After the exciting afternoon, head back to the hotel to freshen up for dinner. Check out of your HotelsByDay room and drive Dad back home. Mom might be jealous of all the fun you had together. Bring her flowers or a token of the day. Ask her ahead of time to spend Mother’s Day with you with the help of day use hotels.

Father’s Day in South Florida

Reserve your HotelsByDay half day stay hotel for Father’s Day. Give Dad a freshly squeezed cup of his favorite juice and open the car door:

Drive to the Boatyard in Fort Lauderdale for brunch. If your father loves the boating, the Boatyard is unique, and the menu offers some of the freshest and most delicious seafod in the area—try the lobster omelet.

Then pick up some fresh croissants or guava pastry at Nanou French Bakery on Las Olas Boulevard. Try to save some for Mom.

If your Dad loves cars and cigars, check out the Cars & Cigars Festival in Coconut Grove.

Drive to your to your local HotelsByDay hotel for a relaxing lunch and a nap. Check out in a flash. Day use hotels for the day is such a great idea. Your dad says, “Wish I’d thought of it!”

Then treat dad to great seats at the Willy Chirino Live in Concert show in Little Havana. You won’t stop singing “Sigo Pa Lante” all the way back to Coral Gables.

Hug your parents and ask Mom if she’s available next Sunday. You can do brunch at the Biltmore.


Father’s Day in New York City

Make a reservation with HotelsByDay for Father’s Day in Manhattan. There’s so much to do in New York City. After you pick Dad up at home in Westchester, consider parking the car at the commuter station:

Take the commuter train to Grand Central. The trains are clean and new so if your Dad’s not a commuter he’ll love it.

Have brunch at Edi & the Wolf. The Austrian tavern atmosphere is the ideal place to enjoy poached eggs with a side of smoked trout and colorful fingerling fries. Enjoy a mimosa or Bloody Mary or try a traditional Radeberger. Everything on the brunch menu is a delicious choice to celebrate Father’s Day.

Or, you can book a brunch cruise on the Spirit of New York. This is a stress-free way to see more of the Big Apple and make new memories with Dad while enjoying a great meal together.

Head over to your day use hotel accomodations for a quick refresher and then check out the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in the afternoon. The Enterprise (the first space shuttle), a submarine, and dozens of restored aircraft are here. Be sure not to miss the drones exhibit.

Return to the hotel to change for dinner then take the train uptown to the New York Botanical Garden to stroll the gardens.

Take the train back to Westchester. Drive Dad home. Take pictures with your parents to remember the wonderful day.

We bet your Dad will love the HotelsByDay experience. Whether you’re traveling for business or planning a day trip with family and friends, day use hotels make the most of your time. Check out some more ideas to make this Father’s Day the best yet.
