New Years Eve Hotels: Los Angeles From East to West

December 17, 2007 at 2:06 PM | by | ()

Many of Hollywood's celebs are getting out of town to party in Las Vegas for New Years Eve, which means the streets of Los Angeles should be safe from any crazy celebrity drunk drivers (cough, Lohan, cough) and clusters of paparazzi stalkers. Although, we don't really know what Britney Spears is doing but we say avoid any of the Four Seasons here and for good measure, avoid the Mondrian which did not have a good year at all.

But you can hit the Viceroy in Santa Monica for a chill Westside party. If you're partying north of Sunset or below hit up the Sunset Marquis or the Sunset Tower which still had rooms available. Maison 140 is a small hotel but if you plan on partying the night away, you won't need much space here, just a bed. And lastly, if you're a brave soul, the Sheraton Downtown LA has just got a makeover and its close to a few NYE events.

More on what's going on at each hotel after the jump.

Viceroy: This party spot is offering several ways to celebrate New Years Eve at the hotel. For $195 a person, you get tickets to the hotel's New Years Eve party which includes unlimited beverages, go-go and Brazilian dancers (to watch we mean), party favors and a midnight toast and celebration.

Or you can opt to start your night with a five-course dinner at the hotel restaurant, Whist, prepared by Chef Warren Schwartz. The $325 price tag includes all drinks at dinner, dinner itself and entrance to the party. The dinner seating starts at 830pm. You can also get an earlier seating at $250 per person or if you are over 65, you can just do dinner starting at 530pm and at $135 a person.

Lastly, you can go all out and spend the night. For $1,000 you get dinner for two at the second seating at Whist, entrance to the party and a late checkout of 3pm.

Sunset Tower: If you have a party in the Hills or just wanna party like The Hills, the Sunset Tower has rooms available but for a two-night minimum. So for Dec. 30th and 31st we found a queen deluxe for $495 a night. Yikes. Even though we liked this hotel a lot, $1,000 is a lot to spend on a hotel room.

Sunset Marquis: Surprisingly more affordable was this hipster hangout which had a junior suite available for $340 a night, although a two-night minimum was also required. Who knows? Maybe Owen Wilson will be there.

Maison 140: Looking to shack up in Beverly Hills but don't want to pay Beverly Hills prices? We found a deal for this hotel at $239 a night but you have to stay two nights.

Sheraton Downtown LA: Normally, we wouldn't recommend a downtown Los Angeles hotel and Sheratons haven't really won us over in the past. But this Sheraton recently got a renovation so as to get some business from the LA Live project thats going up. The makeover includes dark wood and '40s-era furniture, new carpeting and bedding and new bathrooms.

Rooms are pretty much booked on New Years but there are some junior suites available for $495. So we say gather your girls and pile in the rooms after you attend the Rufus Wainwright and Belinda Carlisle concert at the nearby Walt Disney Concert Hall.
