Hotel Party Information
My name is Robert, and it’s my pleasure to welcome you to Young Couples Party. You are going to love it!
Text when you have concerns: The stakes are high. If you see someone vaping inside, notice a consent issue or have ANY concerns, please text 219-292-7266. That number will be monitored all evening by an on-site host. For example, “I smell weed in room 308.” No one likes to tattle but we also don’t need the fire department roaming the hallways while everyone stands outside for 30 minutes. Add that number to your contacts, please!
Carlos is your host for the evening:
See his image below. He is in charge. You can reach him at 219-292-7266.

Discretion: The inside of the hotel is the inside of the party. Do not let strangers in, and no food deliveries.
We once had a pizza delivery guy walk into the YCP clubhouse because no one answered the door right away. So please do not order food, even if you plan on meeting them in the parking lot.
Please also be careful with discussions at local restaurants, etc. We do not want anyone in town to know a major swinger party is happening. For those unfamiliar with the history of YCP, we once had a TV news station do a “live remote” from our hotel parking lot. Do not underestimate how genuinely awful some people are. No one should know about this event.
Bring Your Own Everything: The party is BYOE. You can answer almost all of your questions by remembering that. YCP will not have ice, cups, mixers, alcohol, or food. Please bring your permanent cup. No glass. Bring cash to tip the general manager (Brian) and a separate cash tip for housekeeping.
Alcohol: You can drink alcohol wherever you like. If you do not have a room, there will be a place to store your belongings while you attend the party, leave valuables in your vehicle, so they do not get lost.
Timing: You will NOT be allowed into the hotel after 10:30 pm. Do not ask for an exemption (even if you have a room reservation).

Smoking/Vaping: Do not smoke or vape inside. The hotel manager cannot turn off the smoke alarms. The fire department has to arrive and inspect the building while everyone evacuates physically. That means standing outside (clothed or not) for probably 20 minutes. Someone will vape inside, as this happens at every YCP event at the clubhouse. We cannot be everywhere, so PLEASE remind your fellow party attendees not to do this.
Likewise, you cannot have a fog machine, incense, or cook popcorn in your room.
Remove door decor: Remove your door decor on Saturday night before going to sleep. Otherwise a staff person will remove it at 3:00 am. Housekeeping arrives early on Sunday, and it needs to look like any other hotel night and not a giant party.
Tips and Trash: Each hotel room door will a large trash bag, and a tip envelope when you arrive. Bag up all your trash to make it easier for the housekeepers. Leave housekeeping tips in room. Please also tip Brian, the hotel manager, who will be the only staff person on the property all weekend. We suggest $20. There will be tip boxes at check in and front desk. That will ensure we get invited back.
New Members: Expect a 20-minute orientation, including watching an instructional video on consent.
Dress Code/Nudity: There are hotel security cameras, just like at any hotel. The manager says the recordings go to a DVR in his office, and the data records over itself every few days. Please do not have sex or be completely nude in common areas, except the pool and playrooms. There are no cameras in the pool area or play spaces. Regarding dress code, there is a full description of the dress code in the FAQ of the website. https://youngcouplesparty.com/home/faq/ Dress code only applies to nighttime events. Women always dress well. Men, DO NOT wear a t-shirt, tennis shoes, or a baseball cap unless it’s a part of the theme. Men not in theme, need to be wearing a shirt with a collar and hard bottomed (dress) shoes.
Phones/Cameras: No phones “out” in the hallways, pool area, lobby, stairwells, etc. Phones can only be out in a room, which is where photos can be taken as well. Assuming the room holders allow it and assuming no one is in the background of the photo. Here’s some common responses I get from people when I remind them of the phone rules:
“I’m looking up music”
“I’m texting my kids”
“I’m seeing what time it is”
Please do all of those things in a room, rather than in the hallways, playrooms, etc. If you don’t have a room, phones can be taken out in the storage conference room space.
Playrooms: There are hotel rooms available as open play spaces. They are well marked. Additionally there is a six-bed conference room playroom, with lighting and music.
That conference room playroom has some rules to allow for a sexier environment. Those rules are no talking (except consent talk), and you must be nude (or underwear) to enter.
Wandering Around: Any open room is open so that you can come in. Walk right in and introduce yourselves.
