Hotel Diva Sets a Cougar Trap
Oh lordy. That’s the required reaction when a press release’s subject line reads “Calling All ‘Cougars with Personality.’”
No stranger to horrifically cheesy gimmicks, San Francisco-based Personality Hotels is unleashing a package “designed to free your inner urban cougar.” And by cougar, we obviously mean “all fabulous, independent and sexy women over 40 who love men in their twenties!”
Package offerings include a one-night stay at Hotel Diva, two Hanky Panky animal print thongs as “cub bait” (excuse us, but, ew), two lemon drop cocktails, two $25 gift certificates at Epi Med Spa, pro bra fittings for two at Nordstrom’s, and a list of San Fran’s “hottest Cougar Bars.”
One thing we can’t help but wonder: If your cougar prowl is, er, successful, how’s that going to work if you’re sharing your hotel room with your girlfriend? We sure hope that 20something guy doesn’t live in his parent’s basement. Otherwise the package seems a little like you’re setting yourself up for failure—or a really awkward evening.
But we digress. The package is available through March 31 and goes for $199. Or, if you think you’re truly a top-tier cougar, you might want to enter the “Cougar Contest” to win a two-night stay in a Diva Suite with the package perks included. To enter, write a 150-word-or-less scribe about why you belong in their “cougar den,” along with “your best cougar photo” to email@example.com. Contest runs through Oct. 9.
