The Algonquin Hotel Loves An American Girl, Raised on Promises
If you have a precocious young lady in your life who is currently swooning over the movie Kit Kitteridge: American Girl, surprise her with a stay at New York's famous Algonquin Hotel, where they've just put together an "Algonquin Girl" package.
Treat your burgeoning reporter girl to this girl-power special, which includes a $30 gift certificate to The American Girl store (which has its own extensive movie promotional vehicle under way), a diary (to encourage handwritten thoughts -- how very 20th century), and your choice of two tickets to either a Broadway show or a baseball game.
The Algonquin is the right location for this package, seeing as how the hotel's famed Round Table was made up of writers of all styles -- poets, essayists, humorists, screenwriters, critics, and sportswriters (read more about them all here).
One night packages start at $394 per person double occupancy, a pittance compared to your little lady's squeals of delight when she finds out she's the star.
