Who would have thought that faux fur and babies would actually go together like peanut butter and jelly? Well, the folks Down Under at the swanky QT Sydney have come up with the perfect package for those looking for the trendiest Babymoon.
Appealing to more parents like Brangelina or Posh and Becks, the QT has introduced the perfect package for fashion-forward parents looking to get get away from it all with, of course, the children. The creative offer features daily breakfast for the grown-ups and freshly made baby-food for the little ones and a spa treatment for both mom and dad. If the sexy digs aren't enough to relax, the room comes with a bottle of sparkling wine to calm the nerves of new (or old) parents.

We knew it would happen. The “Babymoons” of yesteryear would return as a trend. And you know who’s to blame? We’ve got two culprits. Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian. Since both women announced their pregnancies, we can’t count the amount of baby-centric packages appearing in our inbox. Fine. Expected.
But this is Fantasy Friday, so you know we’re going for the most OTT package we’ve seen, because it’s crazy fun to peep what’s out there for mamas-to-be (oh, and their partners too!).
Today we’re looking at the “Trump Royal Heir Package” from the Central Park stationed Trump International hotel. The property’s Britain-born GM, Suzie Mills developed the special to ladies in their second trimester want to savor the last few weeks of carefree couple time and prenatal pampering.
Look what you'll get for $6,000 (or $6,500 depending on suite choice) after the jump!
Presumably there are still women the world over waiting to have babies who actually would be prepared to fork out a stack of money for their last hotel hurrah, and 70 Park Ave is waiting for them.
Any idea what a "casual luxury" hotel is? We're not sure either, but apparently Vienna's new The Ring Hotel is a shining example of one. We have a feeling it doesn't mean that you can run around in your oldest shorts and flip-flops, but instead it sounds like they're trying to saying The Ring is a place where you can get everything you want but without any snootiness. Sound okay?
It's called The Ring--not the name we'd choose thanks to the scary movie franchise, but there is a reason--because it's located on Kaerntner Ring, one of the streets that forms a loop around the center of Vienna. Actually it's in a great spot, almost opposite the Opera House and that means you can walk to many places around town, and also have easy access to public transport. And it's still a relatively small hotel with 68 rooms and suites.
Their current seasonal special has a catchy name: "Enjoy Spring at The Ring!" and rates start from 199 (US$310) per night (not including breakfast), which is a lot cheaper than their rack rates. They also have a "Luxury Before Birth" package which is a BabyMoon for couples about to expect their first child--for 549 (US$860) you get 2 nights' accommodation, energy wellness breakfast, a pre-natal massage for Mom and a beauty treatment for Dad, a limo tour through Vienna and a few free gifts.
In the interests of single parents-to-be they even offer the same if you pay a single supplement. Figure that one out.

If you're one of those people who took a ConceptionMoon with the hopes of creating a baby and then a BabyMoon with the hopes of one last quality vacation before a child arrives, then you'll probably dig the newest Mommy Hotel trend.
The NYT reports that the Parrot Mill Inn in Chatham, N.J. is part of a growing trend of hotels and inns catering to new and exhausted parents. Their second-floor suite features a changing-table, baby-soothing music, and a lactation consultant on call. All for $500 a night. We get the lactation consultant but if you've spent money on all the gadgets, gizmos and other nursery amenities that a baby "needs", isn't this just a little extravagant?
Anyhow, in other non-lactating news:
· Hyatt Hotels have begun "Web-In" and "Web-Out," an online check-in and check-out system for all guests at the 100 North American Hyatt properties. Visit Hyatt.com for the HowTo.
· Philadelphia's hotel boom is still going on, despite market woes. The city of Brotherly Love will get a Le Meridien, a Hotel Palomar and a Four Points by Sheraton, to name a few.
