Holiday decorations set the stage for New Year's Eve hotel specials in Boston
New Year's Eve Boston hotel packages and special deals give you the perfect setting for celebrating First Night and welcoming 2015.
Unlike previous years, Boston's First Night events are free - meaning that you no longer need to purchase a special button.
But many top Boston hotels such as the Liberty, the Lenox, and Back Bay Hotel continue to offer special deals and appealing New Year's Eve packages - as well as special packages that you can use at other times too!
Look for celebrations, complementary brunch, free parking, champagne, and late checkout . . . plus discount rates on additional nights.
Boston accommodations for December 31st fill up quickly - so book early to get the best deals.
Note: If you do not see "Confirmed for NYE 2015" on the first line of information for each hotel, it is still being confirmed for this year. Most updates are expected to be complete by mid-November.
These NYE packages provide super values, whether you're visiting Boston for a night out on the town, heading to a private party, or planning a romantic evening. All include a very nice room or suite.
Use the links below to compare rates for the special packages with regular rates.
Usually the special NYE package deal will beat the the regular discount rate - but it pays to make sure! Some NYE specials need to be booked directly with the hotel, so I've added phone numbers in those cases.
If your First Night plans center mainly around Copley Square, the Eliot Hotel's nearby location may be ideal for you, especially if you are looking for a luxury suite. No special deals appear to be available for New Year's Eve - but on other nights through March 7, you can find great deals with the "Winter Suite Special" package.
What you get: The Eliot's excellent location near Copley Square, where many of the First Night activities take place. After the "Countdown to Midnight," stroll back to the hotel and enjoy your luxurious 1-bedroom suite.
Holly Jolly Holiday package at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel in the South Boston Waterfront neighborhood
What you get: Breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children at M.C. Spiedo, holiday cookies, with milk and a cookie decorating kit delivered to the room upon check-in on your first night at the hotel. This special is valid through January 4, 2015. Book with promo code XYO. Valid Thursday through Sunday, and requires a Friday or Saturday night stay. (Please note: New Year's Eve is on a Wednesday in 2014; that seems to mean that you'd need to stay over on the weekend before or after NYE to take advantage of this special. You may want to call 1-800-228-9290 to clarify how this would work.)
More to enjoy: A chance to explore Boston's most rapidly developing neighborhood with your family, where you'll find the Boston Children's Museum, Institute of Contemporary Art, lots of terrific waterfront restaurants, and trendy boutiques nearby.
