Organizing a trip to Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands sometime soon? Book with GroupHotels.com to get a group hotel discount!
From the AC Hotel Gran Canaria – one of the tallest buildings in the Canaries – to Hotel Santa Catalina, these Las Palmas stopovers are all a short drive from the airport and are great for a group hotel discount
AC Hotel Gran Canaria
You can’t miss this attention-grabbing building in the Gran Canaria capital, Las Palmas, which, despite being erected in 1971, looks like it could have been built yesterday!
With 226 rooms and suites across 25 floors, it stands 84m tall, making it the seventh tallest building in all of the Canary Islands. Needless to say, a room at this lovely four star will boast beautiful views of the island. Key amenities include an airport shuttle, a fitness centre and an outdoor pool. Book your group stay here or at any of these hotels and you could get your room completely for free*!
Hotel Santa Catalina
Second on our list of huge Las Palmas stopovers perfect for a group hotel discount with GroupHotels.com is the Hotel Santa Catalina. It has 202 rooms and suites, and is housed in a fantastic Spanish building dating back to the 1890s.
Enjoy the on-site spa, hot tub, indoor and outdoor pools and outdoor tennis court. It is but a 20-minute drive to Gran Canaria Airport. Meanwhile, from the aforementioned AC Hotel Gran Canaria, it is only 24 minutes in the car.
This hotel, and all the hotels on our list, would be an excellent base for exploring all Gran Canaria has to offer, from the photo-ready Roque Nublo rock formation and viewpoint to, of course, the sprawling and iconic Maspalomas Dunes which, despite being on the other side of island, are only 40 minutes away by car from Hotel santa Catalina.
NH Hotel Imperial Playa
With 142 rooms and suites, the NH Hotel Imperial Playa’s major selling point is its waterfront location: roll out of bed, and you’re right on the beach. Ask for a room with a wonderful sea view, and perhaps a terrace.
Work up an appetite by arranging bicycle rental via the hotel, before later dining on local and international dishes at the NH Imperial Playa Restaurant. Beware: this four star is closed for the month of July for renovations, reopening in August.
Sercotel Hotel Cristina Las Palmas
Finally, why not seek a group hotel discount at the biggest stopover on our list: the Sercotel Hotel Cristina Las Palmas. This sumptuous five star has 312 rooms and suites to choose from across 13 floors; many, once again, with ocean views and terraces, owing to a prime seafront location close to the port. Las Canteras beach is only a few feet away!
Be sure to take full advantage of the services available, from an outdoor swimming pool to the gym, from massages to yoga classes. There’s also a coffee shop and restaurant.
Sercotel Hotel Cristina Las Palmas is around 28 minutes by car from Gran Canaria Airport – as is the previous hotel mentioned, NH Hotel Imperial Playa.

Disneyland Paris, France
You never forget your first trip to Disneyland Paris – the only Disneyland resort in Europe, and also the continent’s most-visited theme park. Opened in 1992, the entertainment complex attracts around 15 million visitors a year. In terms of rides, enduring classics include the Space Mountain roller coaster and the Phantom Manor haunted house. Meanwhile, modern movies like the Toy Story franchise and Ratatouille have inspired newer attractions. This one also holds the distinction of being the only Disney resort to have an robotic dragon hiding underneath Sleeping Beauty’s iconic castle!
Where to stay: Disneyland Hotel
With 496 rooms and suites, the Disneyland Hotel is also home to two restaurants and the Cafe Fantasia piano bar.
Opened in 1990, the rides and attractions at Universal Studios Florida are of course themed around movies and TV shows, such as The Simpsons and The Mummy franchise. The resort has since expanded to include Universal’s Islands of Adventure – home to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Marvel Super Hero Islands – and Universal’s Volcano Bay water park.
Where to stay: Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
The retro-styled Cabana Bay has a mammoth 2,200 rooms and suites, plus the super cool Cabana Courtyard and Pool plus the Galaxy Bowl bowling alley.
Ocean Park, Hong Kong
Opened in 1977, Ocean Park Hong Kong is themed around marine-life and animals, and major unique selling points include its educational nature and its commitment to animal conservation – not to mention its 44 attractions, including four roller coasters. From the Arctic Fox Den to the Amazing Bird Theatre and the Hell Raiser coaster and the retro Ferris Wheel, there’s something for everyone at Ocean Park. But perhaps its coolest attraction is the Cable Car, which scales a mountain and connects the Waterfront and Summit areas of the resort.
Where to stay: Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel
Last on our list of group hotels and located right by the park’s Waterfront entrance/exit, the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is box fresh and ultra modern – it only opened late last year! It meanwhile has 471 rooms and suites available, including three types of family-themed room types.

Enjoy a FREE room when you book one of these group discount hotels for your stag party.
The stag party capital of the world is of course Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands in Europe. From the Red Light District to the 1,515 bars and cafes in town, it provides opportunities for hedonism and debauchery in spades. It’s also an exceptionally accessible city: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol came fourth on CNN Travel’s list of best-connected airports last year.
What to do: Wet the groom-to-be’s head on the Heineken Experience beer factory tour, or go indoor go-karting at Race Planet.
Where to stay: Why not the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel? It’s one of the biggest in the city, with 402 rooms and suites.
No city is as synonymous with fun and pleasure-seeking as Las Vegas. The largest city in the state of Nevada and the gambling capital of the world, it was of course famously the setting for 2009’s hit movie The Hangover starring Bradley Cooper – about a bachelor party that goes spectacularly awry…
What to do: Drive a bulldozer at Dig This Vegas – a sort of giant sand box for grown ups – or do a bungee jump at the Stratosphere Tower SkyJump.
Where to stay: Why not The Palazzo + The Venetian Las Vegas hotel complex, which has 7,117 rooms and suites? Or, if you really want to channel The Hangover, go to Caesars Palace, as featured in the film. It has 3,960 rooms and suites.
There are over 770 pubs in Dublin, the capital of Ireland, which says it all. The drinking scene in this city is globally-famous, but there’s also masses of history and culture to soak up. It also provides the perfect gateway for exploring the surrounding storybook beauty of the Emerald Isle.
What to do: The Netherlands is known for Heineken and similarly Ireland’s of course known for Guinness: as such, a visit to the Guinness Storehouse brewery is an essential part of any stag party to to Dublin. Or, alternatively (or perhaps additionally) try the Jameson Distillery Tour Experience.
Where to stay: The Burlington Dublin boasts 502 rooms and suites: the most of any hotel in central Dublin.
The English capital has it all, so every type of husband-to-be will be catered for: glamorous bars and a wide array of museums and galleries for the sophisticated; iconic nightclubs for the night owls, every type of cuisine imaginable for foodies, and, if the mood takes you, 25 casinos to explore
What to do: Catch raucous comic theatre in the vein of Hamilton or The Book of Mormon in the West End, or engage in some team-based problem solving at Escape Rooms London Bridge. Then, a night you’ll never forget at Ministry of Sound
Where to stay: The centrally-located Park Plaza Westminster, with 1,021 rooms and suites, is the second largest of the discount hotels in London, after the Royal National Hotel (1,630 rooms and suites).

This glittering East Coast destination is home to numerous big, buzzing group hotels, including the famous Caesars Atlantic City.
There are countless group hotels to cope with visitor demand in Atlantic City: a tiny town that packs a huge tourist punch with its beachside location and countless casinos.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa
With 2,000 rooms and suites across 43 floors, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is one of the largest group hotels in Atlantic City. It offers six types of accommodation, all boasting oodles of space: the Classic Room, the Fire Suite, the Studio Suite, the Opus Suite, the Piatto Suite and finally, at 464 sqm, the Residence.
As an all-round entertainment complex, the Borgata is second to none. The massive casino is home to 3,026 slot machines, while the Borgata Event Center has seen the likes of Aerosmith and Pearl Jam perform. There’s also the Premier Nightclub, the Spa Toccare (boasting a salon and barbershop) and no less than six swimming pools!
Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City
The four star Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City has 2,587 rooms and suites spread across 40 floors. There are numerous one and two-bedroom suite options, such as the two-bedroom Penthouse Suite in the Atrium Tower, which has its own Jacuzzi!
There are, naturally, 2,192 slot machines to explore, plus 135 table games and 40 poker tables. But, perhaps one of the complex’s most special and upscale features is the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and Spa. Elsewhere, there are 4 nightlife options and 13 dining options. Among the latter are Oshi Modern Asian Kitchen and, from the celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsey Steak.
Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City
One of the destination’s more affordable group hotels and only 18 minutes from Atlantic City Airport by car, the three star Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City has 2,074 rooms and suites. The entertainment complex is called The Quarter, boasting an IMAX Theatre, a spa, and numerous dining and shopping options. Patti LaBelle is just one of the star performers booked for 2019.
The Tropicana enjoys a perfect location next to the beach and the famous Boardwalk. Being home to under 40,000 permanent residents, all of Atlantic City’s main attractions – such as the charming Steel Pier, with its throwback carnival rides and games – are within walking distance of the Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City, and all the group hotels in this list.
Caesars Atlantic City
A cousin of one of the world’s largest and most iconic group hotels, Caesars Palace in Vegas (3,976 rooms and suites), Caesars Atlantic City lays claim to a more modest (but still pretty impressive!) 1,156 rooms and suites. There are no less than 27 variations among them!
Again, it’s on the Boardwalk. Gordon Ramsey makes another culinary appearance in the city, with the Gordon Ramsey Pub & Grill, and there are another 10 dining options to choose from. A mini city-within-a-city, there’s also three nightlife options, the Rooftop Pool, the Salon at Caesars and, of course, the sprawling Caesars Casino.
From the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel to the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, these trusted hotels for groups are used to hosting large parties
Experience the City of Light with a contemporary twist in one of these large Paris hotels for groups – including the French capital’s only skyscraper hotel
Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile
The charming central Paris skyline is largely unbothered by tall, modern structures, with most clustered in the business district of La Defense. Thus, when it comes to Parisian hotels for groups within modern skyscrapers, the four star Hyatt Regency Etoile, built in 1974, is an anomaly.
Located a five-minute walk from said business district – as well as from the I’Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees – it is, in fact, one of the tallest structures in town, standing at 190m with its spire. (To put that into perspective, the Eiffel Tower is 300m).
The building accommodates 995 rooms across 34 floors, with decor that is smart but stylish following a 2012 renovation. Its best selling point is undoubtedly its unique views of the city, but be sure to check out the on-site health club.
InterContinental Paris – Le Grand
Meanwhile, the landmark five star InterContinental Paris – Le Grand has just five floors – but still manages to boast 470 rooms, including 72 suites, thus taking up a whole block in the heart of Paris! The location, right opposite the Palais Garner opera house, is spectacular.
It’s a truly historic hotel with a storied history; since opening in 1862, it’s hosted everyone from Salvador Dali to Orson Welles to Christian Lacroix.
It’s a destination for throwback glamor and opulence, but it’s also committed to a quietly modern take on luxury: the hotel’s last major renovation was in 2003, and another is currently ongoing. (‘We are committed to ensuring that you are not impacted by the work in progress,’ reads a statement on the website.)
Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel
With 757 rooms, including 51 suites across 18 floors, the Gauche Hotel doubles up as a conference centre, and thus has 55 meeting rooms.
The decor is sleek and unfussy, while the rooms have a contemporary look and feel: think floor-to-ceiling windows and rain showers. Logistically speaking, this one of the most family-friendly hotels for groups, with suites and adjoining rooms available.
R’Yves, the hotel restaurant, serves French bistro dishes, but there’s a wealth of restaurants to try at nearby Butte-aux-Cailles. The entrance to the fascinating Catacombs of Paris is also within walking distance.
Le Méridien Etoile
The Le Méridien Etoile lays claim to a mammoth 1,125 rooms across nine floors, including 22 suites; add to this 16 meetings rooms and a total of 2,092 square metres of meeting space, and what you have is the largest of all of Paris’s hotels for groups, designed in a mid-century modern style.
Built in 1972 and situated in the 17th arrondissement, the location is both leisure traveler-friendly (the nearby Avenues Champs-Elysees is great for shopping) and great for business travelers (it sits across from the Paris Convention Centre).
In addition to the on-site fitness centre, and the Ma Chère & Tendre steakhouse, the hotel has the Le Meridien Jazz Club, often offering live entertainment.
The Westin Paris-Vendome
Last on our list of hotels for groups is the Westin Paris-Vendome; like the Le Méridien Etoile, it a Marriott property, this time laying claim to 428 rooms. Found in the centre of town in the 1st Arrondissement, the world-famous art gallery The Louvre is a 12-minute walk away, while the Musée d’Orsay is just 11.
The authentic French fare at the hotel’s Le First restaurant, with its charming courtyard, comes highly recommended, as does a a treatment at the opulent Six Senses spa.
