The "secret" Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien Hotel on 59th Street stopped being a "secret" a long time ago. Today, the shop has its own Twitter feed and Facebook page as well as a second location downtown. Yet that hasn't stopped the masses from craving its meaty goodness, especially at lunchtime.
We popped into the hotel on a rainy day for lunch and already the line was queueing up outside the Burger Joint, which is found at the end of a short, dark hallway with only an illuminated neon burger sign indicating its location.
After we joined the line, the hotel had to break out the line dividers so that it could contain the crowds along the side of the lobby walls. It took us about 20 minutes but our cheeseburger with the works arrived not too long after we ordered it. The burger was incredibly tasty, despite its messy presentation and we found it to be practically up there with our big burger favorite on the West Coast, In-n-Out. The fries were, however, loaded with salt and we could only make it about halfway through the bag.

We've just discovered May is National Burger Month, which apparently is different than National Cheeseburger Day, go figure. However, we won't quibble because anything that gives us a chance to sink our teeth into a juicy beefy sandwich (or turkey, or veggie if our pants feel a bit tight) without remorse, is a-ok in our book.
Naturally we had to think what hotels are serving up stellar burgers for this special time and we've narrowed it down to these:
The $5,000 Fleur Burger by Hubert Keller, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas
Ok, yes, this completely ridiculous and we'll probably never taste this burger at Keller's Fleur restaurant in our lifetime, but it just sounds so completely decadent we can't help but dream about this masterpiece of wagyu beef, foie gras, and truffle served with a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus. Need something a bit more reasonable? Come for lunch and order the Wagyu burger with bacon, wild mushrooms, and gruyere, on a potato bun with frites for $22.
Double Brie & Fig Burger, Surf & Sand Resort, Laguna Beach, CA
Anyone can order a plain-old cheeseburger and we often do, but this version at the hotel's Splashes restaurant seems so unusual, we'd definitely give it a try. It's an Angus patty topped with double cream brie, fig marmalade, caramelized onions and Dijon mustard. It just screams "rich", right? But thank goodness the price isn't, coming in at $19.
We think the ketchup art, while potty-mouth language, does sum up this week in a nutshell, and yet, it makes us smile at the same time because we love the sassy!
This patron's burger from the hotel's King's Highway restaurant (an old Denny's), is accompanied by a tall can of Red Stripe beer, which we don't think we've ever seen before--upping the cool factor even more. The $12 Amigo burger comes with bacon onion marmalade, aged cheddar and butter lettuce. Foul-mouthed ketchup is free.

What’s that? You said you’re sick of turkey? As Jay-Z would say “We don’t believe you, you need more people!” Or, in this case, you need more options. And we’ve got plenty—in good ole fashioned sandwich form.
We asked hotel restaurants to share their best post-Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwiches and they delivered (seriously, some deliver to your room). So, just in case you thought your feastin' was finished? We’re bringing you Turkey Tales Part 2: The Sandwich Remix.
The goal is two-fold, to get you out of the house as you've probably been cornered by relatives for four days and need a nice hotel restaurant escape. And two--those leftover bits of the turkey that you cooked need a home--and it's between a nice brioche, baby.

The hotel scene in Sydney has officially been changed with Four Seasons' new artisan lobby-bar, GRAIN, opening earlier last month. Filling a much needed void in the city's central business district the bar is not only a welcome addition to the neighborhood, but to the hotel also.
The space was transformed from what was once a traditionally designed lobby bar with very few signature drinks and small nibbles. As this place matures, it will surely draw in the general public from the bustling streetscape and strolling the The Rocks area. We had the opportunity to experience a guided tour of the bar, the menu and concept and we were left gobsmacked with GRAIN.
Natural wood featuring pops of warm earth-tones creates a welcoming space to unwind after a long day of sightseeing or maybe a few business meetings while on the road. At closer look, we noticed some unique glassware, interesting local art and a creative balance of wood and water. Best thing is that the large windows at the front of the building open, allowing more nature to become part of the design. Even the bar is made from sustainable Queensland Blackbutt timber.

National Cheeseburger Day is September 18th! We'll meat you wherever you wanna go!
Did you know that tomorrow is National Cheeseburger Day? Go figure! Sure, we know it’s a self-serving promotion by the Cattleman’s Beef Board, but we don’t care. With the weather starting to cool down a bit, why not celebrate this day by checking out hotel restaurant’s serving great burgers?
There are a few places that are actually having specials commemorating tomorrow’s holiday (that's right, we're giving it HOLIDAY status). Then there are restaurants we’ve pulled from our archives that we think have some magnificent hot meat on a platter and you should go for lunch or dinner tomorrow if you haven't made plans. And if you have? Cancel them! It's a HOLIDAY!
Conrad New York's restaurant Atrio will offer half-price cheeseburgers for $12. The "Blue Label" Burger used custom ground beef made especially for the hotel. The burger is grilled and topped with a Cabot Clothbound Cheddar and roasted onion mayo.
While the news out today is all about the exercise-obsessed Even Hotels, it's nice to see that at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, you can still order up a nice, big, fat, juicy Angus burger from the hotel's Cascade American Bistro. But the way they are advertising their burgers is a little unorthodox.
A longtime HotelChatter reader, Brennan Pardee, sent us this snapshot above saying,
I was at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress recently and found this ad stuck on my bathroom mirror. So I guess, "Don't look at how fat you are, come down to the lobby for a juicy burger!" Really?
An ad for a burger stuck on the bathroom mirror? That's definitely something you won't see at Even Hotels. But at least they didn't put the ad on the scale....

Miami hotels are sold out this weekend, thanks to the circus that is the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Most of the big events, like tonight's Amstel Light Burger Bash are sold out and not even your concierge is likely to get you into the tents.
One hotel, though, is coming to the rescue of hungry hotel guests and members of the public alike. The Ritz Carlton South Beach--whose front yard of beach is home to the Burger Bash tent--is serving its own Burger Bash contest entry at the DiLido Beach Club. Tonight.
Let them eat burgers
It must have been a difficult request for the hotel to accommodate. On Friday afternoon, hundreds of fans waited outside the Regent Taipei for the arrival of their queen, Lady Gaga. And though the Turquoise-Haired One managed to enter the hotel unseen, she made it clear that her commitment to her fans is as strong as ever.
Hours after she arrived, hotel staffers were instructed to deliver 100 burger-and-fries combos to the crowd waiting downstairs. Not every hotel is equipped with their own hidden hotel burger shop, so we're guessing some bellhops had to dash to a local fast food chain. But it sure beat Lady Gaga having to maneuver around the hotel in those mile-high platforms!
If you carnivores out there crave a meaty meal, but want something different from the usual Kobe burger, sink your teeth into a bear burger instead at the Standard Downtown LA.
New chef Micah Fields will offer a new exotic patty each week as part of 24/7 Restaurant's new "Burger of the Week" special. Starting today, it will serve up Yogi. Or, more accurately, Smokey, since it's called the "Smokey the Bear Burger."
Welcome to our regular feature, Pitch Your Hotel, where we let hoteliers, general managers and other hotel execs tell us on-camera what makes their hotels so different from all the rest. And believe us, the competition is fierce these days. So sit back, relax and listen to them explain why their hotels are worthy of your hard-earned dollars or rewards points.
On Friday, we teased you with a clip of the poolside scene at the Hollywood Roosevelt and today, the hotel's general manager Don Jacinto goes on-camera to remind us that the Roosevelt is still very much alive in the heart of Hollywood. Just in case you were distracted by the opening of a different hotel in Hollywood. Ahem.
A 25 Degree burger.
If you didn't already know, HotelChatter has a thang for hotel burgers. And oh how we wish we were headed to Beijing for the Olympics. 'Cuz if we were we would have to stay at the new designer hotel, Hotel G, which just opened a 25 Degrees Burger Bar inside.
25 Degrees is already one of our fave hotel burger shops in the U.S. as it's part of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. And it sounds like Hotel G will have the exact same look:
Leading directly off the hotel lobby, the striking venue is playfully designed in the same quirky style as its upscale namesake at the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, renowned amongst Tinseltown's smart set for the `best burgers in Los Angeles'. Plush designer interiors feature a long red, Murano glass-tiled bar, oversized leather winged-chairs, Tom Dixon-designed copper lighting, a silver gypsum ceiling and red floral print on satin wallpaper.
What is new is the creation of some Asian sauces like Hainan black pepper, Kung Pao spicy and sesame ginger which will be implemented both in Beijing and LA.
The Hotel G just opened last month and is considered the hotel for hip travelers. Room rates start at around $150 a night.
