Minimum age to stay in a hotel unaccompanied by parent/adult

Jump to last reply

A group of our son's friends (all HS seniors) have cooked up a plan to go from Boston to concert in NY area (Nassau) and stay overnight in a hotel. They are all 17 and 18 years old. We are not inclined to let our son go under any circumstances, but he does not believe our warnings that a hotel will not let someone of that age stay in a hotel without an older person, even if a parent has made and guaranteed the reservation ahead of time.

Any experience with hotels and age requirements? I know in some parts of the country unofficial "senior trips" - without adult chaperones are the norm (thankfully not here) - so maybe I am wrong about age requirements.
