New Years Eve Hotels: Feliz Año Nuevo en Madrid

Where: Madrid, Spain
December 27, 2007 at 12:55 PM | by | ()

Come New Year, the Spaniards have an excellent custom to celebrate this momentous (well okay, annual) occasion. They fill their mouths with grapes - one for each and every clang of the bell at midnight - then rush around to kiss each other Happy New Year and quirt grape juice over everyone's cheeks. And Spanish supermarkets haven't heard of seedless grapes....

Join in the New Year fun in Madrid - here's our roving Europe correspondent Monica Guy's top three choices for where to stay.

1. De Las Letras: De Las Letras is a real paradox of a hotel. Stunningly trendy, colour-contrasting interior décor intermingles with period statues, a 19th-century exterior and a Turkish hamam.

Spend New Year on the rooftop terrace peering up at the stars or in the much-talked-about restaurant. You're a few steps away from Madrid's upmarket bars and restaurants so you'll have no trouble finding chums with which to celebrate.

Double rooms from €110 ($155) for two people per night.

New Years Eve Hotels: New York's Gansevoort

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 18 Ninth Ave. [map], New York, ny, United States, 10014
December 26, 2007 at 3:01 PM | by | ()

Are your New Years Eve plans not Gansevoort-y enough? Well look no further than New York's most billboard-friendly hotel for some Meatpacking District partying.

The Hotel Gansevoort has a three-tiered event happening December 31, and while all the options are pricey, they're not outrageous by New York standards. The entry-level ticket is $200, which gets you a six-hour open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres and a champagne toast. For $300 a person, you get bottle service and a cocktail waitress, plus, of course, a guaranteed place to sit down. For access to the rooftop, you'll need the $350 ticket, which also includes bottle service.

The hotel also has a NYE package, including a room for the night, valet parking, breakfast the morning after and discount tickets to the rooftop party. Rates start at $675 plus $175 for the party.

New Years Eve Hotels: Morgans Hotels in NYC

December 21, 2007 at 2:13 PM | by | ()

The three Morgans Hotel Group in NYC are gearing up for their New Year's Eve parties, and each promises to be booze soaked. But surprisingly, only the event at the Hudson Hotel promises to be loud and sloppy.

At the Hudson, $225 gets you general admission to what they say are three venues. Really, they're just different bars at the hotel, but whatever. Tickets are good for a four-hour open bar (starting at 9), two-hour tapas bar (starting at 10) and the obligatory champagne toast. A hundred bucks more per person gets you a table for four and bottle service.

New Year's at Morgans centers around the restaurant, Asia de Cuba. A four-course menu and a bottle of champagne is $175 per person, and the second seating happens at 8:45.

The Royalton is hosting a "semi-formal" open bar (9-1 am) with hors d'oeuvres and midnight toast. General admission is $195. If you're not in the falling-down-drunk mood, the midnight seating at Brasserie 44 is $135, not including beverages.

New Years Eve Hotels: Miami Beach's High, Very High and Kinda Low Options

December 21, 2007 at 11:32 AM | by | ()

Miami Beach is another popular New Years Eve destination but the prices here are beyond extravagant. Still, if the hotels throw a party with celebrities and champange, the guests will come. Here are some options we thought worthy of mentioning.

Lenny Kravitz's Florida Room is an instant hit at the Delano Hotel. We're hearing from sources, it's the best place to be these days. So why wouldn't you consider hitting it up for New Years? Well, we have two reasons: Expensive tickets and no vacancy.

The lounge is hosting a killer party on Dec. 31st from 9pm until 4am featuring Gnarls Barkley and the Florida Room Players. Tickets are outrageously expensive at $400 a pop and include cocktails and a midnight champagne toast with Veuve Clicquot. (What, no appetizers or party favors?)

And forget about getting a room there. The Delano, which requires a 3 to 5 night minimum stay is totally sold out over New Years Eve. However, if you want to catch the tail-end of the partying, there are rooms open from Jan. 1-4th.

New Years Eve Hotels: Tokyo's Mandarin Oriental

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 2-1-1 Nihonbashi Muromachi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan, 103-8328
December 19, 2007 at 9:15 AM | by | ()

If we had to say goodbye to 2007 with a bang, we would hop on a plane to Tokyo and spend three party-filled nights at the Mandarin Oriental. We've never actually stayed inside a Mandarin Oriental room and we are making a point of doing this in 2008.

We've also never been to Tokyo although we done plenty of reading on it. So what better way to see a new city than from the top of this Mandarin Oriental. The lobby is actually located on the top floor (the 38th) and has panoramic views of Tokyo from every inch. So if you can't splurge on a penthouse suite, sipping tea in the lobby lounge is the next best thing.

From there, things only get better. The MO has some of the largest hotel rooms in all of Japan filled with high-tech gadgetry. The hotel also has a killer-looking spa on the 36th floor and several dining options, all with amazing views of the city.

We found a Mandarin Deluxe room from Dec. 30 to Jan. 2 for $635 a night. Wowzsa. So we won't be ringing in 2008 here but we can dream right?

New Years Eve Hotels: Moscow's Ritz-Carlton

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Tverskaya Street 3-5, Moscow, Russian Federation, 125009
December 18, 2007 at 11:32 AM | by | ()

For a slightly different New Year's Eve celebration, we want to recommend heading to Russian capital Moscow for a chilly but spectacular way to bring in 2008. There's probably no better way than to experience the very first New Year at the Ritz-Carlton Moscow, a decadent hotel that only opened during 2007. Even without the luxury inside, it's a hotel with the perfect location, and a view over the heart of Moscow (pictured).

This hotel seems to exist to remind the world that Moscow is actually full of millionaires. That means it might be a bit pricey for your New Year celebrations, but fortunately that's only a once-a-year event, right?

The Ritz-Carlton Moscow isn't advertising any special New Year packages, but still has room availability for December 31. Rates start at 14,500 Roubles (US$580) and rise quickly to 126500 Roubles (over $5,000) for a Carlton Suite with Club level access. You'll usually have to pay extra for breakfast but imagine waking up to this as your first meal of 2008:

The Tsar's Breakfast includes a Kobe beef steak with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and truffle omelet, foie gras "Au Torchon" with caramelized apple and pain brioche, Beluga caviar with blinis, sour cream and quail eggs and Italian prosciutto and cheeses -- all washed down with fresh juices and a bottle of Crystal champagne.

The only problem is that with a start like that, the rest of 08 would probably seem like a downward slide.

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.

New Years Eve Hotels: The Bank at the Bellagio and a Deal at the Luxor

December 13, 2007 at 4:35 PM | by | ()

We told you earlier this week about the possibly Ocean's 13-inspired nightclub opening inside the The Bellagio in Las Vegas called The Bank and today, we have received an official release on the nightclub's New Years Eve plans.

Individual tickets start at $250 per person which include VIP entrance and a champagne toast at midnight. However, serious high-rollers with serious bank (heh heh) can get a table package.

Table reservation packages start at $10,000 for eight guests and include three bottles of premium liquor, two complimentary bottles of Dom Perignon, standard mixers, six Red Bull mixers, six Evian waters and a personal service team.

Should you want to attend the nightclub on a different night other than New Years, it will open its doors for the first time on Dec. 27th. But bank is still required as admission costs $50.

If you are in for this sort of mega-luxury Vegas scene, rooms at the Bellagio for New Years start at $899 a night. Those on a budget but who don't want to slum it, we say hit up the Luxor which is offering the 30th and 31st at $290 and $330 (respectively) and a free night on January 1. That roughly works out to about $206 a night and leaves you more money to drop in The Bank, eh?

New Years Eve Hotels: The Marriott County Hall in London

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: London County Hall, Westminster Bridge Road , London, United Kingdom, SE1 7PB
December 12, 2007 at 12:00 PM | by | ()

One of the party capitals of the world, it's no wonder that London is also a favorite destination for celebrating the new year.

Big Ben is a popular spot for families and the like, as revelers have traditionally counted down the seconds with the grandaddy of all clocks. In recent years, however, the London Eye has attracted fresh crowds as the site of a ten-minute long pyrotechnic extravaganza, with fireworks being launched from wheel itself for the first time in 2005.

To make sure you're at the heart of the action this year, we'd suggest you check out the Marriott County Hall Hotel. Just a short stumble from the London Eye and Big Ben, you're bound to be appreciative of the hotel's proximity in the wee hours of New Year's Day.

Many of the spacious guest bedrooms and suites offer stunning views of the River Thames and Big Ben itself, whilst other nearby attractions include Covent Garden, the London Aquarium and the London Zoo.

The Marriott is home to the largest and most extensive gym and pool of any hotel in London, as well as a spa offering an array of treatments to rejuventate and refresh. A bar, two lounges and a restaurant provide a range of quality eating and drinking options on-site.

At USD $1002 for a Guest Room (one king or two double beds) on the 31st of December, we hope that budgeting wasn't one of your new year's resolutions. But if you feel like indulging at the end of a hard year's work, a stay at the Marriott County Hall is just the ticket!

New Years Eve Hotels: The Novotel Darling Harbour in Sydney

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 17 LITTLE PIER STREET, Sydney, Australia, 2000
December 11, 2007 at 9:30 AM | by | ()

This week, we're looking at some of the best places around the world to spend New Year's Eve. Got a suggestion for ringing in 2008, let us know.

If you're considering the Jaunted suggestion of spending New Year's Eve in Sydney--especially because the time difference means you get to celebrate sooner--then we have a hotel package that might suit.

The Novotel Darling Harbour is well-located with fantastic harbour views (that means fireworks views, check-out this daytime view above.) and they've got a few special things happening on New Year's Eve.

The most delicious-sounding part is their massive Seafood Buffet meal. Starting from 8.00pm on New Year's Eve, you can get a buffet dinner including King prawns, Sydney rock oysters, lemon coriander black mussels, chilli lime baby octopus and blue swimmer crabs, and the list just goes on and on.

Local beers, house wines and soft drinks are included, although we reckon you'd need to eat and drink quite a lot to get A$199 (US$175) value from it--but of course you're also paying for the location, and it is New Year's Eve.

Accommodation and dinner packages aren't available--you'll have to book into the hotel separately--but be aware that during this peak season (it's summer in Australia, as well as the holiday season) there is a minimum booking requirement of three nights. Rooms start at A$229 (US$200) including breakfast, but you'll have to pay more if you want your room to have a harbor view.

New Years Eve Hotels: The Hilton Cavalieri in Rome

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Via Alberto Cadlolo 101, Rome, Italy, 00136
December 10, 2007 at 1:37 PM | by | ()

This week, we're looking at some of the best places around the world to spend New Year's Eve. Got a suggestion for ringing in 2008, let us know.

Last summer we were hyped about the Hilton Rome Cavalieri because they were offering gladiator training, which has gotta be one of the coolest hotel add-ons ever. So we were interested to learn about what the Hilton Cavalieri could be offering for a New Year's Eve celebration.

Unfortunately it seems like there are no gladiators involved, but apart from that it sounds like a pretty extravagant way to bring in 2008. The Rome Cavalieri Hilton is offering a 3-night New Year's package for US$2,284 per person, including accommodation in an executive floor room (great views of Rome) plus a 10-course dinner (yes, TEN!) cooked by a 3-star Michelin chef, served in the rooftop La Pergola restaurant. What a great way to spend your last day before the inevitable New Year's diet begins. Finally, when the NYE fireworks go off, you'll have a great view from one of the highest parts of Rome.

The deal also includes a deluxe afternoon tea, apparently made all the more delicious because while you sip your tea, you'll be able to look at three Tiepolo paintings the hotel has just bought; you also get a concert and brunch in the gardens of the hotel on New Year's Day. Perhaps if you ask nicely they'll add an hour or two of gladiator training while you're out in the gardens.
