Looking for suggestions for an affordable, romantic, but not TOO romantic, weekend staycation or trip around NYC.

I am thinking of proposing a weekend away (Saturday and Sunday night) with my boyfriend and I'm looking for suggestions for places or hotels that might fit what I have in mind.
We both live with roommates - my roommate used to be gone on weekends so we had the place to ourselves, but that's changed, and we now have very little privacy for sexing it up uninhibitedly. So I thought I would try to plan a weekend where we could get it on with impunity.
Here's what I'm looking for:
-In the five boroughs or no more than 2-3 hours drive from NYC
-A hotel where we can be relatively loud and not worry about disturbing too many people (so no B&Bs, for example), but is a step up from a no-tell motel (I'm okay with them for a few hours; not so much two nights)
-An area where there is at least something to do or somewhere to go when we do want to leave our room (so not somewhere totally deserted)
-An area with an active Craigslist casual encounters section - we are swingers, and it would be an even better getaway if we could invite people to come join us
-No more than $100-$125 a night
I would prefer to stay local, but think the price restriction might preclude that
Ideally, I would love to do this somewhere in the city, but I don't know if I could find anything within my price range, so leaving the city is fine if it's not in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. I am not sure if there is anything out there that fits at least some of my hoped-for criteria, but I would love to hear suggestions for how I might be able to make my X-rated weekend happen.
