We Promise, This is the Last of the Royal Wedding Hotel Packages

April 21, 2011 at 9:32 AM | by | ()

America has royal wedding fever, and it's only getting worse as we get closer to the big day when Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot at Westminster Abbey.

Kate's every move is being monitored by the press, tacky wedding souvenirs are selling like hot cakes and there's even a horrible-looking Lifetime movie on the soon-to-be-married couple.

And now hotels are doing some last ditch efforts to cash in on the royal wedding madness with last-minute packages for the wedding day, April 29. We have absolutely no idea who is booking these packages but should you and your book club want to celebrate the nuptials in a hotel, here are 9 Last-Minute Royal Wedding Hotel Packages.

· CuisinArt Resort & Spa
The resort's Royalty in Paradise package is less about the Prince and his missus and more about you and your prince getting the royal treatment. The deal includes four nights in a beachfront junior suite, a beachfront dinner for two, a bottle of Veuve Cliquot bubbly, a couples massage, a floral bath soak, an Anguillian coconut pineapple scrub and a Swiss duet rain shower starting at $2,250.

· CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort and JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa
One of the few affordable royal-wedding-themed deals, the Royal Romance package gives you transportation from and to the Cancun Airport, daily breakfast buffet for two, a bottle of sparkling wine, a free upgrade to an oceanview room, a 40 percent discount on spa treatments and a 20 percent discount on food and drinks. It starts at $149 at CasaMagna and $189 at the JW.

· Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans
Early birds who will wake up to watch the 5 a.m. wedding can hang with other obsessed fans at the Ritz. To stay awake for the vows, partake in a British Royal-Tea, with English Breakfast and Earl Grey tea; scones with lemon curd, Devonshire cream and jam; fruit tarts and pastries, and sticky toffee pudding. Or go for Bass Ale and fish and chips, if that's more your style. Wedding watchers can win a Princess Di-inspired CZ sapphire necklace or a Royal Four Hands Massage in the hotel spa.

· Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa & Casino
This Curacao hotel offers a Royal Treatment package that puts you up for three nights. You and a guest will also get a half-day of pampering at the spa, where you'll have a 50-minute massage, 60-minute reflexology treatment, and either a mini-facial or Gentleman's Total Care Facial. The package goes for $1,180.

· Sandpearl Resort
Try the Royal Romance Berries & Bubbly package at this Clearwater Beach, Florida, hotel and you'll score accommodations in a luxury room or resort suite, champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries on the night of arrival and complimentary breakfast for two each morning. The package starts at $299 a night.

· Fairmont Royal York
If you want to celebrate the prince and princess-to-be, go to the hotel where a number of royals have visited, including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Margaret and King George VI. The Fairmont will have a mailbox for well wishes that will be sent to the newlywed couple and screens to watch the I-do's in both the Library Bar and EPIC Lounge. You can watch the 5 a.m. live broadcast with a $35 Royal Wedding Tea that includes teas, a seasonal berry cocktail, finger sandwiches, pastries and cranberry scones. Don't freak if you think you see the royals; impersonators will make appearances at the hotel. If you are a Kate or Wills lookalike, come to the festivities and you'll receive a commemorative gift.

· Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort
Here's your excuse to go to the Virgin Islands: The Royal Bliss Package includes accommodations in room category of choice, a bottle of champagne and rum punch drink upon arrival, a welcome gift, a $200 food and beverage credit and a breakfast buffet for two. Royal Bliss can be had for $288 and up.

· St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino
For the royal nuptials, this St. Kitts hotel will offer the Escape! For Two package, which includes an automatic room upgrade, two massages, two facials, a breakfast buffet for two, a bottle of sparkling wine, a spa amenity basket and a welcome gift. You'll pay $238, inclusive of tax and gratuity.

· Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay
The Miami hotel has a Royal Escape package, though it looks like the name was just slapped on to capitalize on the royal frenzy. Starting at $239, it includes a complimentary breakfast for two and a bottle of champers and strawberries upon arrival.
