Located within 3 blocks of Times Square, the lavish Row NYC Hotel is the perfect place to spend your New York New Year’s Eve without overwhelming your wallet.

With the accessibility of public transportation in the Bay Area, it’s not everyday that you can justify renting a hotel room in the heart of San Francisco. But, 2016 has been a rough year, and you deserve it! Bask in the lush ambience of one of the best-designed boutique hotels in downtown San Francisco—Kimpton Sir Francis Drake. Don’t forget to catch the 360-degree view of the city at the renowned Starlight Room on the top floor.


3. New Orleans

The Hilton on St. Charles Ave has done well to maintain the New Orleans charm and even better to be located minutes away from the infamous Bourbon St. Keep the chaos outside and relax in style—down comforters, gourmet restaurants and a cozy spa tub. Or, bring the party inside; it’s really up to you.


4. Miami

  1. I’d enjoy ANY of these places! Alas, we’re just staying at home and watching movies. It’s cheaper and I don’t have to deal with strangers.

  2. So many choices so little time. I would rather choose warm over closer so California or Texas. All the lobbies are gorgeous. I can only imagine the overall experience these hotels would provide. I hope to visit NYC in 2017 so maybe I can look up this hotel as an option.

  3. Wow that apartment in Austin looks beyond gorgeous! I love the architecture of that building! I’ve heard of the Kimpton in San Francisco, apparently it’s amazing there!

  4. These all seems like super expensive destinations for a last minute trip..with the exception of Kansas City.I’m from a midwesterner so I totally agree that sometimes Kansas City is a bit looked over! Happy New Year!
