Dropping the Ball in NY for NYE

Who has never spent a New Year’s Eve in New York City? It’s a must do for millions of international tourists, and a definite if you are an American! It’s the “city that never sleeps” and on the last night of the year, every year, they make it one to remember! There is no shortage of things going on all over the city; nightclubs, restaurants, bars, lounges, five-star hotels, and of course the mega-block party in Times Square that brings in close to a million people are among the favorite hits.

If watching that glittering ball drop is up your alley, watching it from a hotel room is one way to up the luxury ante. Times Square is no stranger to hotels, and there are many with the perfect view for watching the big moment. The InterContinental New York Times Square sits perfectly in the middle of it all. The Four Seasons Hotel New York is another option, where the luxuries, amenities, and easy access to all the sites are inherent. Booking with us also entitles you to fantastic, Exclusive Complimentary Perks!

Being on the ground, in that giant Times Square crowd is definitely an experience, however, and despite all the comforts of a swanky room, being in the middle of all the action is something you’ll remember for years to come. I did it in 1998, and recall humorously the thousands upon thousands of people wearing sparkly New Year’s garb like sunglasses and pointed hats with their warmest, because the wind-chill made the temperatures drop below 20 degrees. All the interesting people who came from all corners of the world to be there together, and the kind of unique, maddening energy of a party on that level is such an amazing experience! No matter how many times you see that ball descend on television, it does not compare to seeing it for yourself.

Some of the city’s best hotels will be throwing wild parties of their own, and will surely be great gatherings in gorgeous settings. The Ganesvoort Park Avenue will play host to a spectacular penthouse party. Overflowing with style, stellar New York City views, and an open bar from 9pm through 2am equals one insanely fabulous party! While you can purchase admission, booking a room for the night can make partying that much more indulgent! The Mandarin Oriental New York is holding several different parties at their stunning Columbus Circle hotel. A gala at the 36th floor Ballroom, featuring amazing views of the city, will be an awesome spot to dance the night away to live music. Other parties in the building will be held at MObar and the Lobby Lounge, where there will be dancing, hors d’oeuvres, and complimentary champagne at midnight.
No one will disagree; New York is a classic, and thrilling place to welcome in the new year. With no end to the parties and options, and excellent places to stay, partying here is a must! Choosing a luxury hotel can make all the difference for your New Year’s stay. Before and after the celebrating, amenities are so nice to come back to. And after the biggest party of the year, it can be expected you will be ready for some pampering on New Year’s Day!
