So unfortunately I cannot afford to go to NYC for the bowl game and NYE so we are going to be staying downtown Des Moines. I have reserved a room at the Embassy Suites, and I know in the past they have had a big party but this year due to the caucuses they have moved the party to west des moines. I was wondering if anyone had ever been there during New Years. We are college kids and cannot afford their rates so we are keeping it traditional and stuffing more people in the room then we are suppose to. So have anyone you stayed there in the past during this time and are they doing wristbands or anything like that?

What do you think?
