Calling all brides and grooms: December 13, 2014 is your absolute last chance to have a wedding on a sequential calendar date in this century. You know what we're talking about. It started off with 1/2/03 and moved on to dates like 5/6/07 and 10/11/12 and 11/12/13 and now it will all end with 12/13/14.

As with all sequential dates, and palindrome dates like 7/7/7 and 12/12/12, hotels are ready and willing to help you celebrate your (extra) special day. We're sure to see a flood of offers and wedding packages as the date nears but if you're in the nuptial planning stages now, consider the Little Palm Island Resort & Spa in the Florida Keys and their jaw-dropping hotel buyout offer.

The hotel's ETERNITY package will give one couple and their guests exclusive use of the private island resort from December 12-14, 2014. That includes tax and tipping.

Marking the last sequential date of the century, privileged guests join the bride and groom for three full days of decadent fine dining, award-winning service and luxury accommodations, as the resort’s dedicated team of wedding specialists ensure all preparations are flawlessly executed. Priced at $195,000, the 12,13,14…ETERNITY package also includes a $5,000 resort credit, to be used toward a return stay on the couple’s one-year anniversary.

Here's the entire breakdown:

Hotels love to show off their suites and especially to point out what makes them unique. Sometimes it’s the famous designer who created it, sometimes it’s the view, and sometimes it’s the amenities. Well now you can have your own custom designed suite—made entirely of ice—that has none of these attributes, and a price tag that has us gasping for air. This unprecedented experience is being offered by Sweden’s ICEHOTEL, pioneers in ice art and now ‘haute couture’ on the rocks.

If anyone can pull this off constructively and creatively it is ICEHOTEL, who has been busy every winter for the last 25 years, giving new meaning to the term “walk in cooler.” Now let’s cut to the chase – the price for your ice fantasy is about $231,000. No, this is not a typo. Let’s see what you get for it.

The InterContinental LA is Lending Lovers Its Helipad for a Night

We've been put off hotel packages this year but when a package involves a hotel helipad, then we just can't resist.

The InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles not only has an awesome 18th floor helipad with insane views of Los Angeles, the luxury hotel is now letting use it for Valentine's Day. Helicopter ride included!

Priced at an eye-watering $11,000, the package includes accommodations in the newly renovated Presidential Suite with welcome drinks upon arrival (we've seen this suite and it is spectacular), a private 30-minute helicopter tour of Los Angeles in the city’s only twin-engine helicopters, a six-course private dinner for two with wine pairings against a romantic sunset backdrop with sweeping views of LA atop the hotel’s helipad, the Romance Ritual spa treatment at the Spa InterContinental, breakfast in bed for two the following morning, and overall royal VIP treatment, including valet parking, a romantic welcome amenity and suite decorations.

Of course, this is not something you book online. If you're serious about wooing your sweetheart with this package, call (310) 284-6557 to book.

If your wallet can't handle this package, don't fret. The hotel is also offering a Dinner on the Deck package which includes an upgrade to a Superior Sundeck Room with VIP treatment, an intimate four-course dinner with wine pairing on your private sun deck and breakfast in bed the next day. That's priced at $699 and can be booked online here. Just don't let your lover know you took the cheaper option.

Hard Rock San Diego Giving Guests 'The Smell of Desire' With Their Anchorman Package

Ron Burgundy may have taken New York in "Anchorman 2" but the Hard Rock San Dee-Ag-o is paying tribute to the original Anchorman movie (and obviously, the more superior one.)

The Gaslamp Quarter hotel's "Stay Classy San Diego" package includes a few of Ron Burgundy's favorite things like a 1.7oz bottle of Sex Panther Cologne Spray, two Scotch cocktails of your choices at the 207 bar, one pint of Ben & Jerry's Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream delivered in-room and two passes to the San Diego Zoo for some Panda Watch.

The package starts at $347 and is available through March 1st. Go here to book and use the promo code CLASSY. While we like the Hotel Helix's Anchorman package for offering tickets to the Anchorman exhibit at the Newseum and we dig the Kona Kai San Diego's offer of an "Anchorman" DVD, we'd book the Hard Rock package solely to spritz on Sex Panther cologne before the room service waiter comes up with our ice cream. Hey, we're just staying classy.

Where to Stay for New Year's Eve 2013 in Chicago

December 18, 2013 at 3:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

What to do for New Year's Eve? That's the question that's on everyone's mind this week. After, "Omg, I was so drunk at the holiday office party. Do you think my coworkers noticed?" of course.

For those of you heading to Chicago, the rates are looking very DOABLE compared to New York and Miami. We see the Hotel Felix on Expedia for $169 on New Year's Eve while the luxe Langham Chicago is "only" $409 a night. Even The Ritz-Carlton is an affordable splurge at $295 on New Year's Eve. The priciest hotel we saw was the Trump at $495, still far less than the $1,000 room rates for hotels in NYC and Miami. Of course, Chicago will be freezing but these New Year's Eve parties below should warm you up!

Where To Stay for New Year's Eve 2013 in NYC

December 16, 2013 at 9:17 AM | by | Comment (1)

What to do for New Year's Eve? That's the question that's on everyone's mind this week. After, "Omg, I was so drunk at the holiday office party. Do you think my coworkers noticed?" of course.

For those of you heading to New York City, booking a one-night stay on New Year's Eve is going to be expensive. Just doing a quick look on Expedia.com showed outrageous room rates for that night like $949 for the Hilton Garden Inn in Times Square. Most hotels are requiring a two-night stay with rates averaging about $500 a night. Several hotels are going for over $1,000.

Availability may change as we get closer to the ball drop date, meaning there's a chance rates could go down if a lot of rooms are still open but that can be iffy. If you're holding out for a good deal, then you will be better off booking through HotelTonight or another last-minute hotel deal site.

On the other hand, if you're ready to party and ready to part with some money, we've got 5 hotels with both room packages to book and parties to attend. Happy New Year!

Celebrate SLS' 5th Birthday, Get 2 Tickets to the SLS Vegas Opening

November 12, 2013 at 12:04 PM | by | Comments (0)

We've just turned 10 but the original SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills is still a baby at 5 years old. Crazily enough, we were there when hotelier Sam Nazarian gave birth to the energetic hotel that would turn into a full-on, real deal hotel collection with a property in South Beach and more to open in New York, Vegas, Seattle and beyond.

And in typical flashy SLS style, they are celebrating the milestone in a major way.

The hotel has put together an extravagant package SLS 5-Year Anniversary package priced at $10,000 a night that includes a stay in the presidential suite, a truffle dinner for two, personal chaffuer in a BMW, a Ciel Spa experience and wait for it...two tickets to the opening of SLS Las Vegas.

Say what??? We had to double-check this package listing but it's for real. The two tickets are just simply tickets to the opening and not a hotel stay. But we're guessing that if you spend 10 grand on this package, you'll probably spend at least $250 on a hotel room at SLS in Vegas. Remember, SLS Vegas will open sometime in fall 2014.

A more affordable birthday gift for SLS is after the jump.

James Bond Loves a Good Breakfast: New Bond Novel Brings 007 Service to The Dorchester

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Park Lane, Mayfair, London, United Kingdom, W1K1QA
October 31, 2013 at 3:10 PM | by | Comments (0)

The next time you’re checking into The Dorchester and they ask you to state your name, you could just say, “Bond. James Bond.”

With the release of William Boyd’s new 007 novel, Solo, a few short weeks back, you can—quite literally—insert yourself in the story at The Dorchester. The London hotel is the setting for the opening scene of Boyd’s new Bond book, in which 007 is described as treating himself to a 45th birthday breakfast in 1969. In the book, Bond’s breakfast at The Dorchester consists of “four eggs, scrambled with pepper sprinkled on top, half a dozen rashers of unsmoked bacon, well done, on the side and a long draught of strong black coffee.”

If you order Bond’s birthday breakfast, the hotel will help set the scene by offering you an iPod loaded with hits from the 60s, giving you an extract from a national newspaper and the menu from 1969, and serving your breakfast silver service-style in keeping with the 60s. Once a week, a table will be chosen at random to be charged The Grill's 1969 price, a sum just short of £2 ($2.70).

Here's the latest happening in the luxury hotel world as told by JustLuxe.com. Got a question about luxury hotels, the travel biz, and where to stay? Send it in and we'll have JustLuxe answer it.

Over the last 20 years electronic music has spread from the underground to the hip clubs to the mainstream to absolutely-friggin-everywhere – and when we say everywhere, we mean 5-star resorts in the Middle East. If there’s a less likely environment for DJ culture to thrive, we can’t think what it might be.

And yet, for the first time ever in the Middle East, coming up September 20-27 and then again December 6-13, the DJ Dispensary (a collective of luxury travel and 12-inch vinyl experts) will be at Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman, hosting well-heeled, spa-loving Tiestos-in-training for uber-exclusive “DJ retreats.”

Drop the beat, yo. Sound the alarm.

Why Watch The U.S. Open When You Can Buy a Chance To Party With Tennis Pros?

August 30, 2013 at 5:54 PM | by | Comments (0)

Here's the latest happening in the luxury hotel world as told by JustLuxe.com. Got a question about luxury hotels, the travel biz, and where to stay? Send it in and we'll have JustLuxe answer it.

Well ladies and gentlemen, the US Tennis Open is in full swing and if you are anything like us, you totally plan on tuning in when it gets down to the nitty gritty. Because let’s be frank unless you are REALLY into tennis, some of what comes before the final days of the competition is a little less engaging than, say, Superbowl.

BUT, if you happen to be someone who does live and breathe the sport, this particular package will knock your socks off. Actually, who are we kidding, you get to hang out with Sir Richard Branson as a part of this deal, so even if you despise the sport, we think you can fake it and just enjoy a killer vacation in the Caribbean. Plus ten percent of the cost goes to charity, so if nothing else just lie develop a love of the sport for a good cause.
