The Big Apple offers almost endless possibilities for bachelor party madness. But, like living in the city itself, you’ll have to make some compromises. NYC apartments have a reputation for being claustrophobic boxes, and hotel rooms aren’t any different. Many hotels, from large chains to boutiques, jam in as many rooms as they can to maximize profit. Thankfully, there are many hotel suites where you can actually walk more than two steps from your bed to the bathroom.
In fact, these fantasy suites are so massive, so baller, you’ll feel like you have the entire floor of the building. With unbelievable amenities, killer views, and a tank of swank, these are the best hotel suites to book when planning your NYC bachelor party.

Quick. Think of your favorite celebrity: chances are they have stayed at Bowery Hotel. This hotel on legendary Bowery Street is so spectacular, hot shots like Robert Pattinson, Keifer Sutherland and Blake Lively have made the Bowery Hotel home away from home.

Greenwich HotelTribeca Penthouse The Greenwich Hotel, Greenwich Street, New York, NY, United States
When Robert DeNiro opens a hotel, you know it’s going to be fit for the A-list. He didn’t leave one corner unimagined at Greenwich Hotel, and the busy Tribeca hotel has some of the most luxe furnishings ever (Tibetan silk rugs, Italian marble, etc). None of the 88 rooms are alike (they are all individually designed), and there are three (three, dude) penthouses. But let’s not even go there yet. Let’s start with the $1,500-a-night Studio Suite, the “smallest” suite (650 square feet), which has a freaking dry sauna inside, so imagine how the other five suites will just get better from here. Anyway, back to the penthouses. The 2,000-square-foot, two-bedroom Greenwich Penthouse is a duplex with 30-foot windows, sitting room, hand-carved marble soaking tubs and plenty of room to stretch out (about $6,000 a night) but if you really want to throw down, book the Tribeca Penthouse, a gargantuan, two-level space that crowns the building. Not only is this three bedroom a good 2,800 square feet of woah, there’s a 4,000-square foot outdoor terrace (with jacuzzi and gardens) that will set you back $15,000 a night.
Four Seasons New York DowntownTribeca or Gotham Suite Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, Barclay Street, New York, NY, United States
After opening last year, Four Seasons Downtown (not to be confused with the classy property in midtown) brought a whole new level of luxury to Lower Manhattan. There’s a heated indoor lap pool, a state of the art spa, Wolfgang Puck’s Cut and several amazing suites to choose from. While the residential-style, 1,220-square-foot Tribeca Suite is the daddy of hotel suites (insane views of downtown, outdoor patio, dining table for six), the Gotham Suites (725 square feet) have private terraces and massive living rooms on the 23rd floor. It’s more about the prestige of staying at a Four Seasons, but you can still properly throw down. The hotel is conveniently located a short stroll to the One World Trade Center and other hip spots that are popping up in the hood.

You’ll find it hard to leave the Sixty Loft though. In fact, anyone who books this suite usually brings the party back home.
Spanning two floors, the Sixty Loft is a fantasy penthouse, taking over the entire 18th and 19th floors and tricked out with black-mirrored walls, Bose surround sound speakers, kitchen with Dean & Deluca minibar, two and a half bathrooms (one with egg-shaped, stand-alone bathtub) and the massive outdoor terrace for killer views.

Soho GrandLoft South Soho Grand Hotel, West Broadway, New York, NY, United States
One of the New Yorkiest hotels in New York, Soho Grand has been a downtown fixture for decades, known for its party vibes (the site of endless private events from fashion designers over fashion week, filmmakers during film festivals and artists when art fairs are in town. There are two loft penthouses to choose from, but go with Loft South, which is more masculine and the better of the two. It spans a good 2,500 square feet (half of which is a sprawling, landscaped outdoor terrace). The two-bedroom suite with separate living room feels hella industrial (concrete ceilings, hardwood, exposed concrete, tons of leather, floor-to-ceiling windows), but somehow also feels like home. It’s totally set up for entertaining, including a full service wet bar, and you can basically leave all your stuff back home–everything you’ll need is here (they even provide an iPod, iPad and MacBook laptop). There’s a freestanding bathtub in the bedroom, so do what you need with that.
