It includes two nights in a Towers Suite, with cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery waiting upon arrival (the crack-like allure of these cupcakes needs no explanation for fans of the show); two 60-minute spa treatments, two tickets to see Sex and the City 2 (while it’s still playing that is); and two Cosmopolitans at the Bull & Bear restaurant—“to commemorate one of Samantha’s early meetings with Smith Jerrod during the television show’s sixth season.”
We don’t mean to nitpick but don’t you think the ladies would have moved on from Cosmos by now? After all, they started sporting gladiator sandals in the last movie. Don’t cocktail trends move on from 1998 as well? Rates for this package start at $300 per room per night, based on double occupancy.
Meanwhile, the Affinia Hotels of Manhattan is offering a Carrie On package, from May 28 through September 6. This one—available at all five Affinia properties in the city—is also a girlfriend getaway cliché, including a bubbly toast, two tickets for the Sex and the City Hotspot Tours by On Location Tours, a Sex and the City canvas stiletto shoe bag, Sex and the City book, and a 20% online discount on Cosabella’s line of Sex and the City lingerie.
Rates vary by location, starting at $219 a night at the Affinia Manhattan. If you and your ladies book this one, the hotel will email you ticket numbers for the tour, and you then need to call On Location Tours to reserve your spot. (And yes, the tour makes a stop at Magnolia Bakery.)
So, nothing surprising here. We wouldn't mind seeing someone break out of the box on this one. Where's the package that comes with Judaism conversion classes (Charlotte); platters of sushi to place on our naked bodies (Samantha); or cute bartenders for us to walk all over (Miranda)? Huh?
