In New York, like many places, how much you pay for a hotel room is often just as important as where you stay. And next month, that location factor makes a big difference, as you consider where you're going to end up partying on Independence Day and watching those fireworks. Here are a few happenin' places, all with rooms available on the big day...

Hotel Americano announced on its Facebook page that the famed High Line park would be closing down early on July 4, making the hotel's awesome rooftop a pretty great alternative. The bean bag chairs here are a lot of fun, and maybe the chef will even whip you up a hot dog in that fancy open kitchen in the lobby. Rates here start at $275/night—free WiFi included!

Gansevoort Meatpacking, which just finished up a renovation of the guest rooms, and installed some self-loving art too, is courting guests over Independence Day with a "Get Lit" package. Included in the deal are a continental breakfast, a BBQ lunch on the roof, a $20 metro card, a 60-minute massage and facial combo, and—this last one is a biggie—sunscreen.

Incidentally, a similar package is being offered at Gansevoort Park, though to be closer to the fireworks, we'd recommend Meatpacking. Rates for both package start at $536/night.

When it comes to views of the Hudson, Standard New York may have them all beat. The concrete and glass wonder-builing is perched on top of the High Line (though about fifteen blocks south from Hotel Americano) and right on the western edge of the city. Awesome views are pretty much assured here, and if you need a little more stimulation than just staring out the window, be sure to head down to the hotel's Biergarten, where folks will be celebrating America's birthday with German beer. Rates here start at $325/night.
