Planning a dirty weekend in London? We've already declared the rooms at the Sanctum Soho to be among the Sexiest hotel Rooms Alive! but, look out, the hotel's BXG Suite aka room 404, is possibly now the sexiest of the sexy after teaming up with luxury erotic specialists, Box Of Grey.
The suite is decorated with "voyeuristic" images of models Jenny Goodall and Tessa Kuragi by photographer Ray Burmiston and, if you pay £350 extra (on top of Junior Suite rates that start at $620) , comes with a "Bijoux Sanctum" flight case filled with restraints, a BXG leather mask, grey tie, Lelo Whip, feather, latex Bondage Bow and bullet vibrator.

With The Quin just around the corner offering its amazing/ridiculous Bergdorf Goodman on speed dial gimmick, we can't blame fellow Small Luxury Hotels of the World member WestHouse Hotel New York for upping the ante in the high-fashion stakes.
WestHouse has partnered with Net-a-Porter to offer guests access to a dedicated phone line to the Net-a-Porter customer care team, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in 22 languages. Guests receive same-day delivery (to WestHouse) and, if staying in one of the hotel's 16 suites, direct access to personal shoppers from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. on weekdays and to customer care after hours and on the weekends. There's also seamless online direct connect to Net-a-Porter's website via in-room Intelity Pads.
The newly renovated Benjamin has its own snazzy 24-hour fitness center stocked with Technogym equipment but, if you're the type of traveler who needs a little extra push to get your workout in, the hotel's new partnership with SIN Workouts might be a blessing.
SIN Workouts offers individually-tailored training program design and management, bookings at top studios with industry-leading instructors, one-on-one fitness consultations, and additional services, all geared to get you to and through your workout. Individual hotel guests, corporate groups, bachelor/ette parties and everyone else can book a service through the Benjamin's concierge, or through the sales department prior to arrival.
Hotel News / Starwood Preferred Guest / Hotel Loyalty Programs / Hotel Partnerships / Delta Airlines / → All Tags
A new partnership was announced this morning between Starwood and Delta Airlines, and it's a doozy. Starting March 1, SPG elite members will be eligible to earn one Starpoint for every dollar spent on a Delta flight—not to mention free checked bags, priority check-in, and priority boarding on eligible Delta flights for Platinum members.
And that's all in addition to the regular miles earned on flights. In other words, you're earning points before you even get to the hotel. Not a bad deal, eh?
Luckily, the partnership works both ways, so if you're a Delta Medallion member (which you actually have to be in order to participate in the program) who's staying at a Starwood hotel, then you automatically earn SkyMiles, as well as being entitled to late check-out and free WiFi (huzzah!).
The idea is to "provide elite members of both loyalty programs reciprocal benefits," and, as SPG Senior VP Chris Holdren states, "This partnership is the first of its kind. To have SPG Gold and Platinum members earning points on Delta flights is something that really hasn't been done before. You know that saying, 'A friend of yours is a friend of mine'? It kind of brings that idea to life."

Marriott must be feeling old. In an effort to reach those "younger travelers connected to their digital worlds," the hotel chain has launched a new partnership with Wired magazine.
As part of the initiative, the two brands will be curating various events at Marriott hotels around the country—titled the Wired + Marriott "Culturazzi" Series—including comedy nights, meet-ups, and other "provocative and stimulating" experiences basically designed to get people tweeting and Facebooking about Marriott.
The kick-off event, "Marriott Meetup: Five Startups To Watch," will take place in the lobby of the Boston Marriott Long Wharf tomorrow evening, allowing guests to drink wine, indulge in all the tech-speak they want, and simultaneously admire the results of the hotel's recent $30 million renovation, which it unveiled at the beginning of the year.
