British-born, NYC-based artist Shantell Martin has designed a stream-of-consciousness-type summer tote exclusively for W New York. As an added bonus it's filled with sweet treats and summer essentials for a weekend getaway:

So how do you get ‘em? It’s remarkably simple: stop in at the W New York’s newly reno’ed Living Room on Fridays between 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., order a cocktail, and presto! A tote bag arrives. This will only last until supplies run out, but we’ve been promised that they have a goodly sum available.

When it Comes to Paid Vacation, Hilton Wants You to Use it, Not Lose It

November 19, 2013 at 3:24 PM | by | Comments (0)

Hilton Hotels are back with their creative approach to making going away for vacation a top priority. At the end of last winter, the chain wanted you to get away and now they want you to do it again; by staying at, of course, a Hilton property.

This week marks "International Use it Or Lose It Week", marking six weeks to go until we bid a fond adieu to 2013. Along with this celebration, the possibility of losing unused paid vacation time looms and Hilton doesn't really want you to relinquish this hard-earned benefit.

Diagnosing some imaginary (or not-so imaginary) working symptoms of vacationitis like Yellow Post-it Fever and Replyallgia, Hilton has gone pretty creative. If you feel like you might be coming down with any of these ailments, you can seek a consultation at the hotel's vacation website appropriately named, Vacation Care Center. A cheeky, self-triage of your workaholic needs will also enter you into a contest to win a weekend getaway at a Hilton property.

Prost! Oktoberfest is Coming to Andaz Wall Street

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 75 Wall Street [map], New York, NY, United States, 10005
September 19, 2013 at 5:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

As we tend to avoid (like the plague) any event that includes the words "beer drinking competition"in its schedule, we usually disqualify Oktoberfest from our "fun fall festival" lists. That being said, we might be tempted to slip into some lederhosen and/or dirndls this year, as the Andaz Wall Street's Oktoberfest actually sounds like a lot of fun (and refreshingly free from beer chugging contests).

Our favorite West Village 1920s-style hotel, The Jade is taking a cue from our favorite 1920s-set television show, Boardwalk Empire to bring its guests a Prohibition Package. No bootlegging required.

The fourth season of Boardwalk Empire begins on Sunday, and to get you in the mood, The Jade is offering accommodation in a Standard Room, two tickets to the Blue Note Jazz Club, an in-room cupcake treat from boozy bakery Prohibition Cupcakes, two specialty prohibition-era cocktails and a cocktail demonstration at their restaurant with a speakeasy vibe, Grape & Vine. Note: we recommend the Grape & Vine's "Bee's Knees" (gin, honey, and fresh lemon).

The Sheraton Times Square is Giving Guests Hotel Credit For Getting Botox. Seriously.

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 811 7th Avenue [map], New York, NY, United States, 10019
August 30, 2013 at 9:04 AM | by | Comments (0)

The Sheraton New York Times Square has just had a facelift, and it's pretty sure it's not the only one.

In recognition of the completion of a $180 million top-to-bottom renovation, and the removal of construction scaffolding on the building’s facade in September, the hotel is offering guests who have had some work done in the last six months -- on their home or their body -- a $50 per stay Makeover Celebration Credit for use in the hotel. You get the goods by presenting a receipt for at least $150 in home renovations or cosmetic procedures, valid on two-night stays on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in October and November.

Remember the tooth fairy? That generous spirit who arrived during the night to alleviate the pain of losing our baby teeth with a few coins -- or paper, if we were really lucky?

The two Hotel ZaZas in Dallas and Houston remember her and are celebrating this year's National Tooth Fairy Day (um, that's August 22nd, didn't you know?) with a special dental-themed package.

Afraid Of Heights? Stay Away From Hotel Cipriani's New Floating Dinner Table

Where: Venice, Italy
May 24, 2013 at 9:15 AM | by | Comment (1)

Here's a new reason to love one of Venice's most lovable hotels, the Hotel Cipriani. Next month, guests can sign up to have "Dinner In the Sky," a one-off experience that literally involves a 22-seat dining table being raised 164 feet in the air.

According to The Daily Mail:

"A total of 22 guests can be seated around the table, which will be suspended over the swimming pool of the hotel, located on the island of Giudecca.

Thrill-seekers will have the choice of a one-hour three-course meal prepared by the hotel's chefs or a 30-minute aperitif, during which they can drink in views that stretch to St Mark's Square on the opposite side of the lagoon."

We'd probably opt for the 30-minute aperitif, since we're almost positive the dizzying height would make us lose our appetite. Then again, we'd also have to watch how much we drank. Wouldn't want to have any bathroom emergencies at that kind of altitude!

According to the Daily Mail, the platform can be rotated 180º, offering each guest at the table a panoramic view of Venice.

If this idea sounds more romantic to you than terrifying, then plan on booking a seat at the table (50 EUR per person for the aperitif; 250 pp for dinner) for the event, which takes place June 19-23.

As we all know, Atlantic City has never had trouble finding a reason to throw a party (last year, it was the opening of Revel, which was celebrated over multiple weekends).

Now, it's The Borgata's turn to crank up the volume, as the casino hotel's big 10th anniversary is fast approaching, and you can bet (heh) they're going out of their way to let you know about it.

Forget Portland: Become a Spin Master at Maldives DJ Camp

March 14, 2013 at 12:08 PM | by | Comments (0)

We asked you this week to dish on your noisy hotel experiences, and boy, you had stories to tell about, among other things, loud music and drunk people.

On that note, let us be the first to invite you to the DJ party at the NIYAMA Maldives from April 11th to the 19th during the DJ Dispensary Retreat. We know what you're thinking... DJs? Dispensaries? Where are we? Portlandia?

Well, forget Oregon--it's time to learn how to spin while kicking it beside the Indian Ocean. You can take either a three ($850) or seven ($2,000) day disc jockey course (lodging included), both of which include group and one-on-one lessons on music progression as well as familiarization sessions with the DJ equipment. The seven-day trip culminates with your first solo set in either Subsix, an underwater club, or Fahrenheit, the resort's rooftop bar, which will be recorded and given to you along with a course handbook, X-Mini speakers, headphones, and a few other goodies.
