Two beds is a must!

A good guy friend of HotelChatter recently asked us where he could stay in NYC with another one of his dude friends while attending another dude friend's bachelor party. Needless to say, they need a room with two beds. He writes (names have been changed):

Hey, I am trying to find a hotel for Matt and me in NYC. We are going for John's bachelor party! Hahaha. But I don't know which hotel would be good. Since we are two dudes, I would want to stay at a place that has bigger rooms with two beds. Plus I would like to stay in Midtown.

Finding two beds can actually be tricky in NYC. For instance, the Trump Soho doesn't have a rooms with two beds nor does the Element Times Square.

However, the Andaz Fifth Avenue does have two twin beds in their guestrooms as well as free WiFi. The downside is that the rooms are only 387-sq.ft. Same thing at the Muse Hotel and sister hotel, Ink48--twin beds, free WiFi (if you join Kimpton InTouch) but small rooms. Another option is The Strand Hotel which not only has free WiFi but complimentary breakfast as well.

All of those would have been a good hotel stay but after we made these suggestions, it turns out our friend actually booked a room at a hotel he's stayed at before--The Hilton New York.

Rooms with two double beds are located on the hotel's executive floor which gives guests access to the executive club lounge with its complimentary breakfast and hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour. Cocktail hour may have been the selling point for our friend.

"It makes me feel like Don Draper when I go there. I always get an Old Fashion at the bar."

Our friend didn't take our hotel suggestions but we're ready and willing to take yours. Put in your recommendations for a hotel for two dudes in comments below!

Not that it's open yet...

But, I'm guessing The Out NYC would be a bad suggestion?

The Bryant Park

The Bryant Park has rooms with 2 queen beds but you have to call reservations as they are not listed on their website.
