If Eloise is not your idea of a New Year's Eve hostess, head to the stylish Hotel Gansevoort in the trendy Meatpacking District for its annual New Year's Eve bash. The party will be bigger than previous years with festivities and live DJs throughout the hotel. Prices are not confirmed yet, but last year's tickets started at $225 per person and included a top-shelf open bar from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., hors d'oeuvres, a midnight Champagne toast and more. A superior room with a queen bed starts at $645.
