It's true—there are quite a few hotels around the world with the word "Palace" in their names. It's at the New York Palace Hotel, however, that you actually find a prince and princess. Cinderella and Prince Charming showed up to the hotel's Madison Avenue courtyard yesterday evening to kick off the holiday season, light the Christmas tree, promote the upcoming Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella Broadway musical, and hint that they'll be dropping back in every so often during brunch at the hotel.

Stopping into the couryard to view the tree is free, of course, but to try a little of Cinderella's NYC lifestyle you'll have to pay. The season brings not only a special weekend brunch, but also a Cinderella-themed room package.

The Brunch: From noon-2:30pm Saturdays and Sundays, the hotel will serve whimsical dishes like a 'Build Your Own Castle' Yogurt Parfait, a Royal Wedding 'Something Blue' Cupcakes, a Fairy Godmother Frittata, "Back By Midnight" Belgian Waffles, and Pumpkin Coach Cheesecake. Diners can enter to win tickets to the musical as well as pose for photos as Prince Charming appears with a glass slipper.

The Room Deal: From $499 per night, there's a two-night package with access to discounted show tickets (ticket price not included), two Glass Slipper martinis, a glass slipper in-room amenity, and another surprise Cinderella item. Bump up to the $645 package to get two facials and manicures included.

Do keep in mind that the New York Palace's historic 1882 Villard Mansion building is undergoing major renovations, which you'll likely only notice as scaffolding takes up much of the courtyard where the Christmas tree is located.
