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.

It’s one of the Coachella Valley’s most unique retreats, and now you can get the midcentury classic Hotel Lautner all to yourself – for Fourth of July no less.
The John Lautner-designed hotel (though actually it’s more of a self-catering option with four self-contained rooms, each with a kitchenette and private terrace) will be closing for the hot months of July and August, but before it shuts its doors, it’s offering a special Fourth of July weekend package: buy out the entire compound, which gets you all four rooms, the saline plunge pool, fire pit and BBQ.
The package costs $1900 for the Friday to Sunday, or $2850 for Friday to Monday, including tax. Considering each room usually costs $225 plus tax – midweek, low season – that’s not too shabby.

You know when you’re on the couch watching
the Kardashians your favorite TV show, and you want to get up to get drinks/food/an empty bladder, but you don’t want any of that quite enough to get up and move?
You do? Good. The W New York Union Square has just the package for you.
As the name suggests, the new Sunday Binge Watch package is especially designed for couch potatoes. You get your two welcome cocktails (or a basket of beer) in-room. You get a basket filled with movie theater-appropriate candy and snacks. And you get an Apple TV with access to up to three full seasons of the following TV shows: Orange is the New Black, Mad Men, Homeland, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Sex and the City.
Those who go to Berlin seeking to soak up the city's incredible history will be interested to learn that a package offered by the 400-room Westin Grand gives guests the opportunity to take home a piece of the Berlin Wall with a two-night "Wallpecker Package."
The hotel recently purchased a chunk of the Wall, which now sits out in front of the lobby doors on the street. Guests who book the package get to take up a chisel and hammer off a piece, which comes with a certificate of authenticity. The package also includes an upscale taste of Berlin in the form of a currywurst sausage and a glass of Champagne at the lobby restaurant (check out our bro Jaunted's guide to eating in Berlin to learn more about currywurst).

As they promised the other month, the The Stanford Court Hotel has now begun offering a Google Glass overnight package for interested guests.
The hotel initially offered free drinks to Google Glass owners but they've now taken the Glass upstairs to the guest rooms. The "Google Glass Explorer Package" offers guests the complimentary use of a pair of Google Glass to use during their stay, along with overnight accommodations in a deluxe room, breakfast in the hotel's Aurea cafe, and a nightly beverage in the Aurea Lounge.
In case you've never tried on Google Glass before, the hotel will give guests a brief tutorial including a creative handout that teaches one how not to be a Glasshole. #sonecessary
The package starts at just $199 a night and is available through the end of the year. Meanwhile, a real pair of Google Glass can set you back a cool $1,500 dollars. Not in San Fran? You can also try on Google Glass during your stay at the ACME Hotel in Chicago.

Remember hearing of the days when people traveled to European hotels and spas to “take the cure?” Well Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa in Baden-Baden (part of the Oetker Collection and Leading Hotels of the World) has set up three seven-day detox programs that harken back to those days of yore.
Brenners Vitality Detox – This is considered to be the starter package for detox virgins. As with all of the detox programs you get an interview with the Detox Specialist, a personalized menu plan and full board prepared in the Detox Vitalizing Kitchen, daily detoxifying tea and a green smoothie, daily yoga, and a five-course Gourmet Detox Dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant.
The Vitality Detox package also includes spa goodies such as a De-acidifying Alkaline Bath to “support corporeal removal” and a body scrub with bio-virgin coconut oil and fleur de sel.
The Vitality Detox program starts at $3,430 Euros ($4,773) for seven days including accommodation in a Classic Single Room.
Brenners Organic Detox – This package combines spa treatments with a fitness program, and here’s where things start to get a wee bit funky. Along with innocuous sounding treatments like the sea mud compress with alkaline Epsom salts, we have the Flush-out Body Scrub with supporting Belly Button Massage. This makes us a little squirmy. You?
The Organic Detox program starts at $4,095 Euros ($5,698) for seven days including accommodation in a Classic Single Room.
And then we have their big gun: the Brenners Medical Detox. This ain’t for no sissy-baby spa goer (see below for more!)

With all the brouhaha regarding the Government of Brunei’s archaic and decidedly evil new law approving stoning to death as proper punishment for being gay or having an affair, some celebs have either quietly or openly decided to boycott Dorchester Collection Hotels, which are owned by the Sultan of Brunei.
During our recent stay at Hotel Fouquet’s Barrière in Paris we were interested to hear that the last celebs to stay at the hotel were none other than Jay-Z and Beyoncé, formerly fans of The Dorchester Collection’s Le Meurice Hotel.
In fact, the couple is such fans of the food at the hotel’s restaurant, La Petite Maison de Nicole, we hear they have it delivered to wherever they are in the city.
Fouquet’s Barrière’s past is directly tied to the music and film industry. In 1898 Fouquet’s restaurant opened at the corner of the Champs-Elysées and Avenue George V (where it still is today). When the very first theaters opened in Paris in the 1930s, Fouquet’s was close by and became the go-to place for socializing for both the dealmakers and stars of the shows. Here contracts were signed, cast parties were held and films were premiered.
Send a raven. The Hotel Bellevue in Dubrovnik, Croatia is once again rolling out a Game of Thrones hotel package, centered around the
sick cult HBO TV show, which kick off Season 4 on Sunday night. (The tagline for the season? "All Men Must Die.")
The hotel has changed up some of the offerings but only ever-so-slightly. Starting at $286 a night (up from $270 last year), guests will get a classic sea-view room overlooking the area which serves as the backdrop for King's Landing, along with a bottle of Croation wine, a replica of the "key to the city" for King's Landing and an all-access Dubrovnik City Card.
Breakfast for two and airport transfers in a BMW 7 series or Mercedes E class are also included.

Believe it or not, hotels around Boston are already selling out fast for the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 21 as well as for the preceding weekend. (And if you’ve ever visited for the annual event – well, you probably believe it.) If you’re planning to run – or just cheer on the athletes – book now or forever hold your peace. Here are four packages worth a speedy glance:
For the Wino — The Boxer:
The Boxer (pictured), a West End spot that replaced the former Bulfinch Hotel last year after extensive renovations, is offering a special package for runners who need a place to rest their sore legs. (Or any spectators who want to prolong their Boston visit.) The “Marathon Monday Wine Down” includes an overnight stay, celebratory dinner for two with bottle of wine (get it?) in the property’s Mad Men-evoking restaurant Finch, and breakfast for two before you hit the road in the morning. The package price: $509. Having a place to crash on Marathon Monday and avoid the mad rush of traffic out of the city: Priceless.
