Hip-hop heads who weren't lucky enough to reserve the New Year's Eve package to see Jay-Z at Vegas' Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino have the chance to see an old school performer instead.

Doug E. Fresh will headline the NYE party at the W Washington DC. Maybe he'll even teach you how to Dougie.

Fresh, who was hip-hop's first human beatbox, will tear up the hotel's rooftop party. The P.O.V. bash will also include three DJs, five violin percussionists, an open bar from 8 to 10 p.m., and some gourmet bar bites from Jean-Georges.

Everyone is Partying in Miami This New Year's Eve, Judging By Hotel Room Rates

December 28, 2010 at 2:25 PM | by | Comments (0)

Yesterday we noticed that room rates in New York City for New Year's Eve were still rather doable, even finding three hotels under $250 for the weekend.

But when we looked today at the hotel rates for Miami Beach, things were far less do-able. Yes, we know that Miami Beach has fewer hotels than NYC but these prices are steep! We tried our best to find fun hotels near the action for somewhat doable prices. Still, you better round-up your best friends, acquaintances, Twitter followers, Facebook fans, Jersey Shore housemates, whathaveyou to split the room costs here.

We searched HotelRates.HotelChatter.com for December 31-January 2nd (because we don't expect you to shake off that hangover before checkout at 11am) and found the following hotels and their planned New Year's Eve events (all rates listed pre-taxes):

Foodies have been eager to chow down at Sixteen at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago ever since it earned a coveted Michelin star, but its travel-themed New Year's Eve package is good excuse to give the restaurant a go.

Sixteen will offer an Orient Express-themed spread so you can eat your way to the new year through upscale European fare.

Is the Snow Keeping Hotel Rates Down for New Year's Eve in NYC?

December 27, 2010 at 2:25 PM | by | Comments (0)

The snow as seen from Morgans Hotel

While Snurricane 2010 aka Snowmaggedon aka Snowpacolypse has wreaked havoc on travel plans across the U.S., hotel rates in New York City as we head into New Year's Eve are looking rather reasonable...for New Year's Eve in New York City that is.

Is the snow to thank/blame? We're not sure but for those of you who are able to get to NYC by NYE, you best take advantage of these deals!

Here are some of the doable rates on New Year's Eve at HotelRates.HotelChatter.com. Searching for December 31-January 2nd (because we don't expect you to shake off that hangover before checkout at 11am), we found the following (all rates listed pre-taxes):

10 New Year's Resolutions We'd Like Hotels to Stick To in 2011

December 27, 2010 at 1:05 PM | by | Comments (4)

The New Year is practically upon us and while we are furiously scribbling our own list of New Year's Resolutions (#1. Take down the Justin Bieber poster, #2. Learn to interact with people IRL, not just on Twitter) we thought we'd lend a helping hand to hotels with their own list of New Year's Resolutions. We know, we're too kind!

10 Resolutions We'd Like Hotels To Stick To in 2011

Free hotel WiFi on our iPad (#hotelgeekwetdream)

1. Free WiFi: You know how we feel about free WiFi--it should be free in all hotels, not just the budget motels, and it should be working. There's nothing we hate more than booking a hotel because it has free WiFi, only to find out it doesn't work. (Ugh and don't even get us started on pay-for WiFi that doesn't work.)

2. Reasonable Rates: There's been a lot of talk lately about hotel rates creeping back up after the economic crash down of 2008/2009 but we're hoping that hotels can restrain themselves from overeager price-gouging. After all, we've been having so much fun staying in hotels the past two years because rates were so doable. Please don't take that away from us!

3. Clean Rooms: Because we're getting tired of finding dark hairs in the bathtub. Really.

Keep reading for more New Year's Resolutions for Hotels!

Ring in 2011 in Honolulu with the Kahala's First Pineapple Drop

The ball drop in Times Square is so last decade—you know it's true when it's all about gimmicks like putting Jersey Shore guidette Snooki inside of the lit-up ball, hamster-style. The New Year's Eve tradition that's fistpump-free for 2011 is the first-time pineapple drop at the Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu.

The only celeb who might make an appearance is President Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii with his family.

Lauryn Hill to Sing at Gansevoort Park This New Year's Eve

December 24, 2010 at 10:28 AM | by | Comments (0)

The NY Post reports today that singer/part-time recluse Lauryn Hill will do a rare, live set at the Gansevoort Park's rooftop this New Year's Eve as the kick-off to their new music series "Live at Gansevoort Park." (See what you have reaped Rose Bar Sessions!

Yet while Hill's "Ex-Factor" might be, without a doubt, one of the best songs in the entire universe of music, we're a little surprised that the Gansevoort has gone with Lauryn for such a big night considering that she hasn't been so reliable in recent years regarding live performances.

But with Gansevoort expecting to live-stream the concert, we guess we can see for ourselves how she fares, without ever having to leave our home. You can do it girl!

Feel Like Spending New Year's With Broadway? Then Head to Morocco!

All week long, we'll be fantasizing about some of the Over The Top New Year's Eve events and packages that ritzy hotels are putting together. Who knows? Maybe one of you moneybags out there will invite us to party with you! Know of an OTT hotel package for NYE? Send it to us!

After its big re-opening bash last November, we already know that La Mamounia in Marrakech knows how to party. So it seems like a logical--and completely OTT--place to spend New Year's Eve.

Now, we're guessing SJP won't be there, but there will be stars of a kind--the hotel is flying in the cast of the musical The Best of Broadway (from New York, London and Oslo) to perform a single show on December 31.

Party at Hilton San Diego Bayfront on NYE to Snag $199 Rooms

  Site Where: 1 Park Blvd. [map], San Diego, CA, United States, 92101

One of the biggest New Year's Eve parties in San Diego goes down in the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Big Night San Diego will feature 12 party areas, six dance floors and plenty of music to keep you dancing through 2012. But the best perk of attending the big bash is that you can get a discount on a room.

Rooms are available for as low as $199 on New Year's Eve for Big Night revelers. It's an ideal deal if you plan on hitting the hotel bash—though you'll have to pony up $120 a ticket to attend. You can just stumble into your room after you've had one too many.

When talking OTT New Year's, you absolutely know for sure that New York City is one place to zero in on. Even still, the NYE offers at The Chatwal managed to blow our socks off.

We're not talking about the glam party at The Lambs Club either--although that does sound lovely, with its cocktails and canapes in The Lobby Bar, a three-course dinner at the restaurant, a Krug champagne toast at midnight and dancing in The Lounge with an open bar until 2 a.m.
