Planning your Trip

We can't wait for you to visit New York City, there is much to do besides our wedding festivities.

Below we list hotel, Airbnb and activity recommendations, please reach out to the grooms for further guidance. We are happy to help!

Ace Hotel Brooklyn

Best for central location, hip design. 15 minute Uber from the Prospect Park Boathouse. Use promo code CELEBRATE for 15% off for our guests.

In the laid-back Boerum Hill neighborhood, this sleek hotel is a 2-minute walk from a subway station, featuring vintage furnishings and local artwork, the retro-inspired rooms provide flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi and minifridges. Some add loaner guitars and vinyl record players. The 1-bedroom suites offer separate living rooms.

The William Vale

Best for Manhattan skyline views, modern luxury. 20-30 minute Uber from Prospect Park Boathouse.

Homegrown in Brooklyn, The William Vale stands out as Williamsburg’s only true luxury hotel. Immerse yourself in our lively and creative culture, indoors and out. Experience the greatest city in the world from our point of view.

The Standard Hotel, Highline

Best for the stylish and glamorous ambience, dramatic views and location. 45 minutes to 1 hour Uber to Prospect Park Boathouse.

Rising above a former elevated train line that has become downtown’s favorite public park, The Standard, High Line is located in New York City’s Meatpacking District. Every one of the 338 hotel rooms features a full wall of floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of Manhattan and/or the mighty Hudson River. The hotel’s inviting and scintillating public spaces include a bustling German beer garden at ground level, the rooftop discothèque Le Bain, the legendary Top of The Standard and an outdoor public plaza with rotating art installations and activations

Airbnb Guidence

NYC has a ban on short term rentals without the host present, so your Airbnb experience may be less private than expected. Listings that advertise as "Entire Rental" may be operating outside of Airbnb standards, please book at your own risk.

NYC neighborhoods can be dramatically different. For a more relaxed and quiet experience we advise looking in these Brooklyn areas: neighborhoods surrounding Prospect Park, Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Crown Heights. For a more exciting experience and to be closer to classic attractions, we advise looking in these Manhattan areas: West Village, Tribeca, Greenwich Village.

If you intend on exploring the city using the Subway (Ubers can get pricey!), review Subway lines here.

Kindly respond here as soon as possible, thank you!
