Ring in the future by stepping into the past with a Cole Porter-themed New Year's Eve package at the luxe Rock Hall in the Southern Berkshires/Litchfield Hills, Connecticut. New Year's revelers will toast with Champagne cocktails while listening to Porter tunes performed live by a jazz ensemble. The next day, awake to a Mediterranean-style brunch and complimentary spa soak to start the New Year off refreshed. Known for luxury, the rooms at the historic Rock Hall, built in 1912, feature fireplaces, imported linens, flat-screen TVs, and fresh-fruit-infused spring water in every room. The "Night and Day" New Year's package ranges from $500 to $650 per night with a two-night minimum stay.
