The Carlton Hotel in New York falls somewhere between overcool boutique and personality-free big-box hotel and sometimes that can serve a bachelor party just perfectly. On one side you get the nice Marriott touches like comfortable beds, a competent staff and Rewards for the points junkie in your group; on the other there are the unique touches like an overly-cool lobby bar and craft cocktails and live music at Salon Millesime. While you and your crew might not be blown out of the water with the Carlton, you are also not likely to be disappointed. Save the risky choices for your 3AM visit to Chinatown.
Venue Tip: 

Try to get higher rooms as the weekend DJ can sometimes be blasting late night. Then again, if you are asleep before a Marriott DJ maybe you deserve some punishment.

The Good: 
A reliable option in a good location.
The Bad: 
If you are looking for a bustling scene or fancy room service, this might not do it for you.
