Short Answer: Outside of Las Vegas, it is uncommon for hotels to allow parties in rooms because large parties may disturb other guests. Most hotels allow you to have a limited number of guests in your room and have noise regulations. Alternatively, many Airbnb properties allow parties, and you can even rent an entire house. To learn more about hotels that allow parties and hotel policies on visitors, noise, and damages, see below.
Hotels That Allow Parties in Rooms
After calling several of the top U.S. hotel chains, we found that, in general, hotels do not want guests to have parties in their rooms. Parties can lead to unwanted consequences for the hotel, including noise complaints from other guests and damage to the room and/or hotel property.
You may be allowed to have a limited number of guests in your hotel room, but you’ll have to abide by the hotel’s noise policy. Most hotels also have overnight guest limits per room. Keep in mind that if you ignore hotel policies and host a party in your room anyway, the hotel staff can ask you to leave and may even call law enforcement.
If your party guests do not need overnight accommodation, many hotels offer hospitality suites that can be booked for events such as meetings, receptions, and small social gatherings. These types of spaces often include an adjoining room, and while hotel policies about noise and parties still apply, the hotel staff both allow and expect groups to gather in this space.
As an alternative to traditional hotels, many Airbnb locations around the country also allow parties. Keep in mind that Airbnb properties are individually owned, so some hosts might have rules about parties, noise, etc. If you sign up for Airbnb with our referral link, you can get up to $55 toward your first stay (note that a lucky member of the FQF staff will also receive Airbnb credit if you use our link).

Plaza Hotel & Casino
- Party rules: The Plaza Hotel & Casino allows parties within reason. Parties should finish or move elsewhere by 10 to 11 p.m. to avoid noise complaints from other guests. Noise complaints can lead you to be kicked out. All guests should be 21 or older, especially if alcohol is present.

Customers also report success hosting parties at the ARIA Resort and Casino, MGM Grand, Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace, and Palms Casino Resort. It may be worth contacting the hotel at which you intend to stay to find out its policy on parties and/or make arrangements in advance. Some Las Vegas hotels also have large suites specifically for groups of four or more.
Hotel Policies on Visitors, Noise, and Damages
While most hotels do not allow parties in rooms, you may be allowed to have a limited number of guests in your hotel room. Keep in mind, you and your guests will need to adhere to hotel policies. We contacted some of the most popular hotel chains in the U.S. — Best Western, Comfort Inn, Country Inn & Suites, La Quinta, and Hampton — to find out about their policies on visitors, noise, and damages. Here’s what we found:
- It is fine to have guests in your room, but most hotels will limit the guest count at six per room.
- If any of your guests plan to stay the night, you should include their names on the reservation. If you do not, or if your room is already at capacity, you may need to book another room. Overnight guest restrictions are often related to fire safety standards.
- Unauthorized guests are typically not allowed pool access.
- If anything in the room or at the hotel is damaged, there will likely be a fee. Comfort Inn said there is a $250 charge for damages. Other hotel chains said fees vary depending on the severity of the damage.
- Smoking in a non-smoking hotel or hotel room will also result in a fee. Both Hampton Inn and La Quinta said there is a $250 cleaning fee. Other hotel chains’ smoking fees vary.
