The Four Seasons Miami Used This Much Chocolate To Make Their Easter Display

April 18, 2014 at 6:00 PM | by | ()

What you're looking at is nearly two thousand pounds of chocolate. Ok, 1,700 pounds to be exact. But that's how much chocolate was used for the new "Easter Wonderland" display at the Four Seasons Miami.

Created by the hotel's new pastry chef, Keith Wallace, the display is meant to capture both the playful and colorful scenes of "Alice in Wonderland" and the playful and colorful side of Miami. Aside from the massive amounts of chocolate, the display and its 30 chocolate eggs, along with some chocolate mushrooms, took 20 hours to build.

Wallace and his team will have even more chocolates and other desserts on display at the hotel's Easter Brunch, happening on Sunday at the Edge Restaurant from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $99 for adults and $25 for children ages 5-12. Make your reservation by calling (305) 381-3190 or book online at www.edgerestaurantmiami.com.

Hop Over to These New England Hotel Easter Egg Hunts

April 18, 2014 at 5:47 PM | by | ()

Adults and kids will jump for joy at these festive New England outings. Unless you want angry neighbors rapping on your door all day, we don’t typically endorse indulging your kids in a sugar rush while staying at a hotel. But this weekend is Easter, after all - so if your little cottontails are going to get their paws on milk chocolate bunnies, they might as well do it somewhere nice. You know, somewhere with a spa. (That’s for you.)

To save you the trouble of hunting all over the Internet, here are a few New England properties that are hosting Easter egg hunts for kids and families. At the very least, they’ll get the children to play with something other than an iPad. The best-case scenario: Hopping all over the hotel puts them down for a nap, and that spa is all yours.

Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, NH The property is hosting not one, not two – but FIVE different Easter egg hunts that are open to various age groups (and guests and locals alike). Among them: the all-ages “Great Bretton Woods Hunt,” which will scatter eggs (including a prized “golden egg”) across 464 acres of New Hampshire’s largest ski area. (“Powdery treats” are promised as you search.) There’s the “Easter Egg Extravaganza Hunt,” that will hide 600 colored eggs around the hotel itself, and there’s the “Slopeside Pub Easter Egg Hunt,” an adults-only afternoon hunt in the property’s tavern. (Other weekend activities include a “Tortoise and Hare” themed ski and snowshoe race, and story time with the Easter Bunny.”)

The Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong gets into the Easter spirit by asking the age old question--which comes first--the chicken or the egg?

To be honest, we prefer not to get into such debates. Instead, we'll focus on the cute as hell eye candy brought to you front-and-center from the hotel's delectable Mandarin Cake Shop.

Sing it now, "rubber ducky, your the one..." What, you don't know this song? Gah! To the corner with ya!

Nobody does a holiday better than a hotel but the Peninsula Chicago has really gone out of its way for Easter again this year.

The luxury hotel on North Michigan Ave has decorated a MINI Cooper with bunny ears, a pink nose and whiskers and a poofy tail. The bunny mobile will ride around Chi-town with Peter Cottontail and the Peninsula mascot Peter Bear passing out candy and toy Peninsula bears (dressed up in their Easter finest) to kids throughout the city. So parents, if a car pulls up with a bunny and a bear looking to give your kid some candy, it's actually ok to let them.

Back inside the hotel, the Lobby restaurant and The Children's Lounge will feature children's activities and of course, an Easter egg hunt. Looking for a last minute room at the hotel this weekend? Rates start at $350 a night.

Where to Do Easter Brunch on Sunday

April 5, 2012 at 1:33 PM | by | ()

This Sunday is Easter Sunday and if you can't get to London to sit in an egg chair, never fear. There are several hotels to hop to this weekend for brunch. Here are our picks:

1. The Claremont Hotel, Club & Spa
Spend the day in the East Bay of San Francisco at the grand Claremont Hotel in Berkeley which is hosting an Easter egg-stravaganza perfect for families. From 10am to 4pm, guests can dig into a special seasonal buffett from executive chef Josh Thomsen featuring dishes such as roasted prime rib of beef, Atlantic salmon, classic eggs benedict, roasted spring leg of lamb, Sonoma chicken and of course a maple glazed ham. There's even a traditional Chinese Dim Sum station too.

After you fill up, burn off the calories by taking the kids around to visit Peter Cotton Tail, partake in egg painting, a children's petting zoo, an inflatable bounce and face painting with live piano music. The cost is $89.00 per person with kids 12 and under are half off. Room rates are still available for $189 a night as well.

This Easter Sunday, Kill A Few Hours Hanging In The Radisson Bloomsbury's 'Egg' Chair

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 9-14 Bloomsbury Street , London, United Kingdom, WC1B 3QD
April 5, 2012 at 9:03 AM | by | ()

Not all of your Easter plans have to involve chasing down sugar-crazed tykes, who are in turn chasing down the Easter Bunny, who is in turn looking for the nearest dive bar. You could instead pack for an overnighter and take a much-deserved getaway to one of the first class rooms on the seventh floor of Radisson Bloomsbury in London.

While technically all of the rooms in all Radisson Blu Edwardian London hotels this month are offering a free chocolate Easter egg, free full English breakfast and free room upgrade for an Easter package starting at £135/night, only room 7007 in the Radisson Bloomsbury contains what might be London's coolest piece of hotel furniture: the hanging egg chair.

Angry Birds Protect the Golden Egg at the Sand Hill Hotel

Angry Birds FTW! This might be one of our favorite hotel pastry concoctions ever.

The pastry chef at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, Calif. created a special Easter display in honor of Angry Birds, the addictive iPad and iPhone time-waster app and video game. Considering that this hotel is in the shadow of Palo Alto and Silicon Valley, the Angry Birds were very apropro.

The birds were put out for the hotel restaurant's, Madera, Easter brunch where ducks, chickens, dwarf goats, turkeys, sheeps rabbits and yes, pot-bellied pigs frolicked on the lawn out front. Although the display is made of edible ingredients, guests were not allowed to get the Golden Egg, er, we mean, eat it.

Our favorite Easter candy is Cadbury Mini Eggs—no, not the nasty fake yolk-filled eggs, but the little chocolate nuggets of bliss. But this year, the Four Seasons Aviara, North San Diego came up with a way bigger and better Cadbury egg replacement.

The hotel has cooked up some ginormous chocolate Easter eggs, all of which are carefully decorated to look like objets d'art. Forget lame dyed eggs; we want one of these in our Easter baskets.

Hop to These Five Hotels for Easter Brunch

April 1, 2010 at 9:28 AM | by | ()

The Taj Boston will serve a view with Easter brunch.

Here's what's fun about Easter: bunnies, holiday candy and good eats. What's not so fun about the holiday is cooking said good eats and, even worse, doing the dishes. This year, get out of the kitchen and let someone else do the Easter cooking.

We rounded up five places you can get a tasty hotel brunch, so that you can focus on chillaxing with family and friends rather than cooking and cleaning.

Instead Of An Egg, The Cumberland Hotel Gives You Easter At Half Price

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Great Cumberland Place, London, United Kingdom, W1H 7DL
March 26, 2010 at 10:38 AM | by | ()

Easter in London for half price? Yes please. Guoman Hotels are being quite proactive about getting bums on quilts at the moment, and their latest fad is the simply named 50 percent off this Easter deal.

Expect exactly what the title suggests – half price rooms over the Easter period, with no pesky minimum stay or anything like that.

The only snag? Three of the four hotels have already sold out of availability for the package, but The Cumberland still has room.
