5 Not Lame Gifts For Dads on Father's Day

June 12, 2014 at 2:35 PM | by | Comment (1)

You're a good man, Clark.

Dear Dad, we're sorry that you've suffered through years of opening pointless gifts on Father's Day like the bland ties, the boxes of golf balls you didn't need, the fad workout equipment you did need but didn't know how to operate and for that goofy Batman water bottle with "DAD" written on the back in permanent marker (Actual gift I gave my dad. I was 9.)

This year, there's no excuse for ho-hum gifts to give your father this Sunday, thanks to these hotels and their totally not lame offerings.

For The COOL DAD: The Hotel Palomar in San Francisco has put together a "Tie One On & Throw One Back" package that gives men a one night stay at the hotel, a beer-fueled private shopping appointment at the cool casual Bonobos Guide Shop; 20 percent off Bonobos purchases; either a beard trim or a straight razor shave at People's Barber Shop; and a "Get Me a Juice Box" Lunch Box at the hotel's rooftop bar, serving two cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, a thermos filled with a Hot Toddy and a little bar snack. Rates start at $259 a night but the package must be booked two weeks in advance. Go online at www.hotelpalomar-sf.com and use code TIEON or call 866-373-4941.

For The RUM LOVIN' DAD: The Mandarin Oriental New York is offering a special Father's Day rum tasting flight of the Facundo Rum Collection in their Asiate restaurant, the Lobby Lounge and the MObar. Each selection of the Eximo, Exquisito and Paraiso aged sipping rums can also be paired with a cheese plate. Simply sipping on the rums is $65 per person while doing the cheese pairing is $85 per person. Make your reservations by calling 212-805-8800. The tasting ends on Sunday.

6 Father's Day Hotels To Make Dad Feel Like A Man

June 11, 2012 at 10:03 AM | by | Comments (0)

It's coming up on Father's Day, and once again, we're here to make your gift-giving experience go as smoothly as possible. How, you ask? By providing a range of perfect hotel experiences to suit all dad types! From smoking lounges to motorcycles to "sports" manicures (if you want to make a spa treatment guy-friendly, then that prefix is compulsory), we've rounded up six hotels with the best man-centric activities.

So, what are you waiting for? Read on! You've only got six days to book!

Though it's home to three championship golf courses, a shooting school and one of the best father-and-son fishing getaway spots, The Cloister at Sea Island off the coast of southern Georgia has one other man-centric feature that helps it stand out from the rest of the resorts: a Smoking Lounge. The wood-paneled room helped win the hotel a coveted spot on T+L's "World's Best Resorts" in 2006, and provides the ultimate man-cation hangout spot, with cozy leather armchairs, a fireplace, and an on-site Cigar Sommelier to help dad pick out his smoke of choice.

There’s something especially decadent about getting a pedicure in the jungle. Maruba Resort and Jungle Spa, in northern Belize, is offering some great spa deals this summer. Our favorite? Their signature “Mood Mud” body scrub. Brimming with minerals, Maya mud is the kind of rich goop that you’ll happily smear on your body.

You can pick the mud to match your mood: Red Daji "arouses strength, health, sex, passion, and courage." We’ll take a double dose, muchas gracias.

The Hotel Packages Your Dad is Secretly Dreaming About

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: ST JAMES, Saint James, Barbados
June 19, 2009 at 12:15 PM | by | Comment (1)

Over on USA Today’s Hotel Check-In blog, guest blogger John Newton culled a few fun Father’s Day hotel deals worth sharing. The column caught our eye due to how well he summed up our sentiments: “As the parent of a freelance travel writer attempting to survive the crash of American print media, my dad will have to be satisfied with Sunday brunch,” he writes. (Or, er, a well-meaning card sent cross-country.) Regardless, Newton goes on to share four options for those whose financial situations are “a little more rosy.”

Though Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa’s four-nights-for-the-price-of-three package (just $130 a night!) in Thailand sounds pretty sweet, we must say our own dad might be getting a little, um, mature for the resort’s dive center, wind-surfing classes, and sailing charters.

Nah, if we had a bottomless bank account for spending on a Father’s Day gift, we’d opt for the “Golf & Spa” package at the Sandy Lane in Barbados, which includes anywhere from five nights and two rounds of golf to 14 nights and eight rounds of golf. We would settle towards the middle with seven nights and four rounds of golf at the Country Club for a cool 6K, breakfast and one spa treatment included. Our links-loving dad would totally feel bad about not lending us the car more growing up. After all, this is the exclusive spot where Tiger Woods got married! Talk about an endorsement.

Check out Newton’s other dream dad deals here.

Get Dad 'Manned' Up At St James's Hotel & Club

  Site Where: 7-8 Park Place, London, United Kingdom, SW1A 1LP

Stuck for Father’s Day gifts for a dad who likes to think of himself as a bit more intellek-shall than one who might want to receive a six pack or the latest Meat Loaf album?

May we suggest a ”traditional grooming experience” courtesy of the St James’s Hotel & Club? Book him a room (lucky mum will like you for that too) in June, July or August, and the hotel will throw in a free treatment at Truefitt & Hill, a 200-year-old barber shop just round the corner from the hotel where the royals like to go. There, they’ll have a ”traditional hot towel wet shave, haircut, shampoo and manicure”. So mother will like you even more.

The package costs £290 for the two of them. Pricey, yes; but he’ll also get to pretend he’s Samuel L Jackson. And that’s priceless.

Give Your Dapper Dad a Cognac Experience on Father's Day

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 80 Columbus Circle [map], New York, ny, United States, 10023
June 5, 2009 at 12:28 PM | by | Comments (0)

Yo, kiddies? Father's day is this month. And if your pops is more of the cigar-lounge-and-fireplace than the Disney World vacay type, consider this pop's day gift from the Mandarin Oriental New York. Hint: cognac is involved. Yeah, dapper gentlemen only.

Way up on the 35th floor in the Lobby Lounge, MOBar or restaurant Asiate (yes, with kickass views of Central Park and the skyline), pops can enjoy an evening tasting cognac if you book him the Father’s Day Cognac Package:

The flight consists of three pours, including Delamain XO Pale and Dry, P. Frapin Vintage 1983 and Hine Vintage 1975, and will be accompanied by a selection of chocolate truffles.

How very... classy. It'll cost you, though, so be prepared to shell out $670 per night for the room and cognac tasting — and if you want to join dad on his tour de alcohol, you've gotta pay $75 for an additional flight.

The packages are available all through June; call (212) 805 8800 for rezzies.

Lure Dad to Sunset Marquis' Spa With the Promise of Post-Facial Food

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 1200 Alta Loma Rd. [map], West Hollywood, CA, United States, 90069

Your dad may have been the dude who taught you how to be manly, but that doesn’t mean the grizzled old guy can’t enjoy a little pampering care of the Sunset Marquis this Father’s Day.

For dad’s special day (that’s Sunday, June 21st this year for all you inconsiderate kids who haven’t looked it up yet), the hotel’s restaurant, the unoriginally-named RESTAURANT (seriously), is hosting a special brunch from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm featuring seasonal ingredients “spun into flavorful dishes” courtesy of five-diamond Chef Guillaume Burlion. The buffet includes appetizers, salads, carving and omelette/pasta stations, desserts and a glass of champagne for the grand total of $55 for adults and $15 for kids, though children under 6 eat free.

Want to give your old man something to smooth out the wrinkles you put on his face during your daredevil teen years? Treat him to a special spa facial treatment any day from June 5th-31st, and the hotel will include a glass of champagne and an appetizer at RESTAURANT after the signature “Hydrate and Replenish Facial.”

Sure beats a polka-dot necktie...and we all know food is the way to a man's heart (and may just make him a little less hesitant to go for that facial).
