Few New York City hotels welcome bachelor parties. This guide lists the New York City hotels that will accommodate a bachelor party
Aside from Las Vegas, New York City is arguably the best city in the country to throw a bachelor party and have an extraordinary nightlife experience when celebrating your best mate’s single status before his walk down the aisle. Chic, luxurious and excessive are words that describe New York City’s hottest hotels to throw bachelor parties. Rent a suite or penthouse in an NYC bachelor party hotel and celebrate a bachelor party without having to visit outside establishments. Suites and penthouses come with the works—often spacious with amazing views of NYC, plenty of bed and couch space for people to crash, large flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations with sound systems, a balcony or terrace, Jacuzzis, and even in-suite bars. And when it comes to bringing in outside entertainment like strippers or anything else the NYC bachelor party hotel will most likely not approve of, the number one rule is to be discreet. Also, bear in mind that renting suites and penthouses can come with a security deposit, and if you want to get it back, try not to let things get out of hand. Few NYC hotels are even willing to advertise that they will accommodate bachelor parties in their suites and penthouses, for the sake of its image to not look like a “bachelor party hotel.” However, these following eight NYC hotels do welcome bachelor parties.
