Staying home to celebrate the final days of bachelor/bachelorette life seems all too passé. Or, to put it more bluntly, boring.

The trend among millennials is to jet set to locations better known for debauchery, partying and a weekend of luxury. After all, those are the criteria necessary for an appropriate sendoff into marital bliss. But that doesn’t come without expense. Between airfare, hotels, lavish dinners and late night partying, bachelor and bachelorette parties can frequently cost four figures per attendee.

You can defray those costs by using points to cover your hotel stays (and miles for your flights to your destination). Consider doing just that at the following properties in some of the most frequented bachelor/bachelorette party locations.

1. SLS Las Vegas

Cost: 10,000 Starpoints per night

As a Vegas veteran, I honestly believe where you stay does matter. Restaurant options, lively bars and trafficked casinos add to the energy of the party. The SLS is as competitive as any hotel in this area, boasting an eclectic offering of restaurants that range from sushi to Mediterranean to the Umami Burger Beer Garden and Sports Book. The property is at the end of the Strip, but what does that matter? Taking a party bus around town is surprisingly cheap and unsurprisingly fun.

2. Marriott Stanton South Beach, Miami

Cost: 45,000 Marriott points per night

The steep price in points is justified by its beachfront location. Poolside food and beverage services add to the luxury of one of the more popular bachelor/bachelorette party locations. The area’s most popular nightlife spots are just a short cab ride away. Forgot to pack something? Nearby Bal Harbour Mall, although pricy, caters to all your fashion needs for a night out.

3. Le Méridien Denver Downtown

Cost: 16,000 Starpoints per night

54thirty, the property’s rooftop bar, is hands-down the best place in the city to start your night out. It offers the city’s best views, so just point to where you want to head to when you plan to kick things up a notch. The property is located just a mile from Coors Field, the epicenter of an area that boast Denver’s best bars and nightlife.

4. InterContinental Montreal

Cost: 45,000 IHG points per night

Located between downtown and Old Montreal, the property provides ideal access to the city’s main arteries. Casino gaming, sporting events and great nightlife are short rides away at most.

5. Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette French Quarter Area

Cost: 40,000 Marriott points per night

The steep price is worth it for staying steps from the French Quarter, where you’ll be sure to spend most of your time partying. The property offers native cuisine — oysters, beignets and other great NOLA-inspired dishes. The casino and House of Blues are both easy walks from the hotel.

6. JW Marriott Austin

Cost: 40,000 Marriott points per night

Edge Pool Bar & Cabanas offer a great way to party during the day. The hotel is just blocks away from famed Sixth Street, and it’s easy enough to find transportation to Lake Austin where more parties await.

7.  Noelle Nashville

Cost: 20,000 Starpoints per night

With Broadway just a block from the property, you’re at the epicenter of the country music community. The property’s rooftop bar, Rarebird, affords you great views of Printer’s Alley and offers artisanal cocktails. It’s a great place for your party to congregate before heading out to dinner.
