Does anyone have a good recommendation for a hotel to get ready prior to the wedding, ideally with nice views and large enough to accommodate my bridal party and moms? I’m trying to stay within $1,100 for a suite/loft. Thanks!

@NYBride2014: We had an AMAZING rate from the W Hotel downtown (financial district.)
We paid $750 for the suite. It’s normally about $3000 per night. It was 1050 square feet, so would easily accomodate you and your bridal party. There’s two rooms – a bedroom and a living room and windows that are almost floor-to-ceiling so we had some incredible light.
As a bonus, we held our after party there and had about 50 people. It must be totally sound-proofed because no one complained about noise.
They were also great with setting up room blocks and giving a very reasonable rate. I can PM you a contact if you would like.
My photographer (Kimberly Salem) had a ton of fun with the modern fixtures in the suite:
And our rings (she flipped a mirror sideways and put them on there with my veil in the background.)

One more thing I should add is that I’m pretty sure part of the reason we got such a great rate is that we booked a block of rooms for our guests to stay in (we had a lot of out of towners).
I can’t say enough about how great they were at the hotel to guests and they were really nice to deal with as well.

Look at The Standard, it will give you great views and you can always take pics on The Highline. When are you getting married, and where?

Try the Roger on 31st and Madison I think? We got a suite with a terrace FREE with 25 room bookings (some of the rooms have views of the Empire State Building) plus free dress steaming, shoe shining, bottle of champagne, we (bride and groom) got upgraded to a terrace room for free (will be completely free if we book all rooms plus champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for the wedding night), 2 room updgrades (parents), a round of cocktails for the bridal party before the wedding, and a private car service to the wedding location. They have been fantastic to work with! Highly recommended.
