New Year's Eve is less than five weeks away (and you still don't have a date). To help your plans mightily along, we've compiled a map of a dozen hotels in the Boston area offering specials for the big holiday and, in some cases, for the days leading up to it. These include special check-in and -out times; drinks and dining deals; and those certain something-somethings that make the New Year either romantic or at least memorable for better or worse. Some of these hotels, too, you'll notice, are on our latest Hotels 18, charting the region's most essential inns.
