While the Fourth of July is a little more than two weeks away, you still have time to plan something big for the holiday. A number of hotels are offering deals to get your party started right. Some will give you a front seat to the fireworks, others will stuff you with food and drinks for the event and one place will even get an HBO star to serenade you.

Find out our picks for five festive Fourth of July hotels after the jump.

· W Washington D.C.
Head to the W's POV terrace for the open bar and celebrity entertainment. Entourage star Adrian Grenier and his Brooklyn band the Honey Brothers will perform for the Fourth of July. Then watch the city's National Fireworks display. You'll have a prime spot because the W is next to the White House. NYC DJ Sky Nellor will spin afterward. The Boom with a View package, which includes a room and tickets for the rooftop party, costs $619. Tickets for the celebration only go for $200.

· Sè San Diego
Hit the beaches of sunny San Diego for the Fourth. The Sand & Spa package includes a night of accommodations, free valet parking, a $200 spa credit and a picnic basket stocked with cheeses and fruits, a baguette, sparkling water and a beach blanket. Bring your basket o' treats to the Big Bay Boom to see the city's fireworks display over San Diego Bay. Rates start at $429 per night.

· Trump SoHo
UPDATE: The hotel's roof deck is not open and the hotel does not have an opening date. Sad face. Spend your holiday at this strategically located new hotel in Soho. It overlooks the Hudson River, where the Macy's pyrotechnics will take place. For a more chill evening, try to snag a room facing the river so you can watch all the fireworks from the comfort of your own room. A number of rooms are already gone, but some are still available starting at $359 for the evening of the Fourth.

· Hotel Palomar Philadelphia
Rooms for the evening start at $249, but fork over $10 extra to play around in Philly for the Fourth. The Summer Playground package includes accommodations, a $25 in-house restaurant credit, a free in-room movie with popcorn, morning iced coffee, afternoon Arnold Palmers and sangria during wine hour.

· The Ames
This Boston hotel will help you mark Independence Day with a picnic basket of goodies from Woodward tavern and a bottle of bubbly. Bring your grub and champagne to the banks of the Charles River for the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, where Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture will be a soundtrack to the colorful sky display. Rooms for the night start at $465.
