Places like The Goring, The Stafford and Park Plaza Hotels were all quick to join in the royal wedding mania that took place two summers ago, but here's one hotel that seems to be starting a new trend: royal baby mania.
London's Grosvenor House has chosen to re-decorate one of its Premium Park suites in anticipation of Kate Middleton and Prince William's firstborn. Not that, like, the baby is actually planning to stay there (at this moment, it can't even digest its own food, so we don't see how it could be making hotel reservations…), but, you know, just in case.
"Suite Dreams" is a fully-equipped nursery, with a luxurious four-poster crib, hand-painted furniture, Beatrix Potter-inspired designs, and a children's play area with a London-themed toy cupboard.
The whole thing is pretty impressive, actually, though no surprise there, as Daily Mail tells us the suite was actually designed by Dragons of Walton Street, a studio that's created nurseries for the Royal Family in the past.

We knew it would happen. The “Babymoons” of yesteryear would return as a trend. And you know who’s to blame? We’ve got two culprits. Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian. Since both women announced their pregnancies, we can’t count the amount of baby-centric packages appearing in our inbox. Fine. Expected.
But this is Fantasy Friday, so you know we’re going for the most OTT package we’ve seen, because it’s crazy fun to peep what’s out there for mamas-to-be (oh, and their partners too!).
Today we’re looking at the “Trump Royal Heir Package” from the Central Park stationed Trump International hotel. The property’s Britain-born GM, Suzie Mills developed the special to ladies in their second trimester want to savor the last few weeks of carefree couple time and prenatal pampering.
Look what you'll get for $6,000 (or $6,500 depending on suite choice) after the jump!
This hotel received an official "thumbs up" from the Queen.
Despite our initial pause about the term "Royal Warrant", no one at The Goring Hotel in London's swank Belgravia nabe is getting arrested. Rather, the Royal Warrant decree establishes the hotel as the Royal Family's "official favorite hotel of choice." It's the first time ever the Queen has bestowed the award on a hotel.
Not that we needed some fancy schmancy decoration from the Queen to understand how much the Royal Family loves the spot. After all, this is where Kate spent her last night as a commoner in the hotel's top floor suites. It's also where several of the royals retreated post-nuptials to let their hair down and have some real fun. Perhaps too much fun in Prince Harry's case. But the hotel isn't just a joint for stuffy royals. In fact, a pretty sexy bridal lingerie photoshoot inspired by Kate also happened at the hotel in 2011.

It's no secret that the royals love The Goring Hotel in London. After all, that's where Kate Middleton spent her last night as a free woman before marrying Prince William in April. It's also where Prince Harry partied a little too hardy after the nuptials. But we can't help but wonder what the Queen Elizabeth would think of this sexy photoshoot for Marks & Spencers' new line of bridal lingerie. The Daily Mail reports:
The lingerie-clad girls, wearing nude heels, stockings and suspenders, were promoting M&S's new range of bridal lingerie at the Victoria hotel where Kate spent her last night as a Middleton. The vintage-inspired collection, available to buy from today, includes corsets, bras and bodices made of silk and lace.
We thought the Royal Couple craziness would die down once the newlyweds became an old married twosome, but nope, we wrong. Now, hotels in California are looking to cash in on Prince William and Kate's impending trip to the Golden State. In particular, Santa Barbara hotels are downright giddy over the couple's planned visit for a charity polo match and meal. So much so they are celebrating the best way they know how--with a package.
The Santa Barbara Hotel Group is honoring Kate and Wills with their Royal Romance Escape package. (Groan.) You and your king (Double Groan) will get accommodations as well as an upgrade, a bottle of champagne, high tea for two at Andersen's of Santa Barbara and a list of the top 25 places to kiss in SB. (Actually, that one's kinda cute.)
Everyone is eagerly awaiting for newlyweds Prince William and Princess Kate to make their big stateside debut—which will be Kate's first trip to the U.S. One of the royal pit stops will apparently be at the famously pink Beverly Hills Hotel, HollywoodLife reported.
We thought the couple would take up in one of the hotel's brand-new loaded presidential bungalows, but we're guessing that the outdoor shower for two isn't becoming of a princess.

You might do a double-take today when you see a royal guard in a furry black hat standing stoically outside of the Beverly Wilshire. It looks like the guy got lost on his way to Buckingham Palace.
Of course, it's just the latest case of royal wedding fever among hotels. If you weren't among the sleepy Kate and Wills fans to wake up in the middle of the night to watch the wedding, you can still get into the festivities at the hotel.
Still fancy a front row seat at the Royal Wedding? The good news is not all London hotels are sold out. Looks like that big wedding isn't going to be that big after all!
If you want to be right in the thick of it your best bet is to choose a hotel in Westminster or near to the proccesion route. The Royal Horseguards Hotel located on the Embankment is a pretty safe bet, just a few minutes’ walk away from the procession.
The hotel has created a special package which includes brekkie, a wedding gift and afternoon tea for £375 per night. However when we checked there were still double rooms available for £185 per night with a mininum two-night stay.

With only two days left until the big day the Royal Wedding hotel events are getting sillier. Yesterday we brought you the Premier Inn's package which offers guests the chance to sleep with the couple and today it's the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotel who have announced the sweetest package yet.
The two-time world champion pastry chef Laurent Branlard has created exact replicas of some of the Royal Jewelery, only made from sugar. The pieces include Princess Diana’s royal tiara and the sapphire engagement ring Wills gave to Kate. We're not sure what the tiara is resting on but that yellow face looks kind of freaky!
We know we said we'd given you the last of the Royal Wedding packages but this is one we couldn't resist.
Premier Inn Hotels are offering guests who stay at any of the 22 London Premier Inns the chance to sleep with Kate and Wills on the eve of the big day. How are they managing this? With bedsheets featuring lifesize photos of Will and Kate. Except their heads are missing from the shot, making it perfect for you to slide under and pretend you're the Royal Couple instead.
America has royal wedding fever, and it's only getting worse as we get closer to the big day when Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot at Westminster Abbey.
Kate's every move is being monitored by the press, tacky wedding souvenirs are selling like hot cakes and there's even a horrible-looking Lifetime movie on the soon-to-be-married couple.
And now hotels are doing some last ditch efforts to cash in on the royal wedding madness with last-minute packages for the wedding day, April 29. We have absolutely no idea who is booking these packages but should you and your book club want to celebrate the nuptials in a hotel, here are 9 Last-Minute Royal Wedding Hotel Packages.
