In a partnership with Hotel Max, the Lomographic Society International has hand-selected a particular type of camera—the black-and-white diamond patterned La Sardinia Domino Pattern Edition, in case you were wondering—for guests to receive when they arrive at the hotel.
The idea is that the camera, just one of many offered at Lomography stores and collected by members of the Lomographic Society International, matches the aesthetics and "artistic spirit" of the hotel (self-described b the hotel as "edgy and fun.") So by the end of your stay, you'll have your own set of wide-angle shots from around Seattle.
And theoretically, if you really like them, you could even have them blown up and pasted onto your front door just like the doors at Hotel Max. But that part isn't necessary.
"Fifty Shades of Seattle," on the other hand, is much less demanding. Inspired by the best-selling e-book Fifty Shades of Grey, the package offers guests the following:
"A chauffeured, luxury town car will whisk guests off for a 30-minute helicopter tour in their own private “Charlie Tango” with Seattle Helitours.
The thrills of this airborne adventure will be followed by a relaxing chauffeured drive to the shores of Puget Sound where they will embark on a private, four-hour skippered sunset sail with Windworks Sailing. [G]uests will indulge in a gourmet picnic from Kiss Café and a bottle of Bollinger Grande Annee Rose 1999 champagne, a favorite of the enigmatic Mr. Grey himself, while on board."
Unsurprisingly, "Fifty Shades of Seattle" ($1669 for two nights in an Artist King room) is slightly more expensive than "Shoot From The Hip" ($269/night). But depending on whether you're a bookworm, photo nerd, or plain old hotel geek (like us), then we trust you'll make the right decision. Seattle ho!
