Once again, hotels are going all out for Breast Cancer Awareness month, offering up pink cocktails, pink sheets, and pink-themed room packages.
Yet while we love the pink passion that hotels have this month (especially since costs for your pink hotel purchases go to a breast cancer awareness charity), we're really in love with this giant pink bra that's been hoisted upon the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans.
The 12-foot-high, 25-foot wide, 300-pound pink bra was constructed by artist Jonathan Bertuccelli of Studio3 inc. on behalf of the breast surgeons at The Omega Breast Center at The Omega Hospital in Metairie. It was raised up onto the hotel's exterior by crane on October 15, which was National Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day.
But the bra will get its moment to shine tonight as it will greet hundreds of breast cancer survivors who will be honored tonight at The Pink Gala, hosted by Omega Hospital and New Orleans Living Magazine, at the Windsor Court Hotel.
The bra will stay on the hotel until October 20. If you're in New Orleans, hurry by to see it!

If you follow our Miami Hotel Mambo coverage, you'll know that the South Beach hotel scene has been dominated by buzz for one hotel and one hotel only in 2012. There's lots of rebrandings and renovations and reality shows going on but nothing has captured our attention quite like SLS South Beach.
We've been dying to see how SBE would build on its Beverly Hills blueprint and what design maestro Philippe Starck could do to top his groundbreaking work on next-door neighbor Delano. This weekend, we finally found out, as we checked into a City View King Room on the hotel's second official night in business.
Not all of the suites are ready yet, but the rooms that were ready were sold out this weekend. The hotel itself was buzzing with chic guests and restaurant patrons, and there was a surplus of friendly, helpful staff on site to kick things off. We'll have more on the restaurants and other public spaces later this week, but for now, take a spin through a room courtesy of our video and photo gallery...
We knew that the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami-Brickell Downtown was going for the green, aiming for LEED-certification status. But, as this shot of one of the newcomer's guest room shows, the hotel thinks pink, too.
We kinda like those hot pink accents--and they are certainly timely since it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month--but we wonder how the straight-laced suits who bunk here while in downtown Miami on biz will like them?
One thing they will like in these cash-strapped times is the Hampton Inn Brickell's opening rates--which are as low as $129 a night this Friday.

Once again, hotels are going PINK this October for Breast Cancer Awareness which means that staying in hotels is going to feel even better knowing that proceeds from these special packages and spa treatments listed below are going to a good cause.
Hotel Zaza : The Hotel Zazas in Dallas and Houston are going crazy with pink this month! The hotel chandeliers are pink, the employee ties are pink, manicures are pink and best of all, guys are rocking Pink Chucks! (See above.) Plus for every room booked under the code PINK this month, the hotels will donate $5 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Peninsula New York: The hotel's ESPA is offering pink-themed treatments to raise funds for the American Cancer Society as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pink Power Package includes a massage with an optional personal training session for a day of pampering and fitness. Then there's the Peninsula Pink Ceremony, a two-hour treatment that includes a rejuvenating body scrub, cleansing facial, and full-body massage. Doesn't it feel good to do good while um, also feeling good?
We told you about a pink bathroom on Madison Avenue last week. Today, here's an entire room that's been hit with a rosy streak—this time, in the name of charity.
Crowne Plaza White Plains is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month (which doesn't actually start until October, but hey) with two special pink-accented rooms that automatically donate 10 percent of the room rate to the American Cancer Society. So as you turn off your hot pink bedside lamp, remove your furry pink throw pillows, and snuggle down into your hot pink sheets, be comforted by the fact that just by staying in a hotel, you've actually made a contribution. Easy!
October is almost over, but hotels are still going strong with their pink-themed celebrations to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That means you can still cash in on some great spa deals, yummy teas and more while helping raise funds for breast cancer research. But hurry, since you have a little less than two weeks left to take advantage for these pink specials.
See five ways to go pink this month after the jump.
Hard Rock Hotels are going pink again this month to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Heck, the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood in Florida hotel is going all out with pink drinks, a pink pool and pink shirts for staff. Dubbed Pinktober, the monthlong celebration will raise money for the cause.
You can do your part by sleeping in one of the pink-sheeted Hard Rock rooms; 25 percent of the room rate will be donated to breast cancer research and awareness charities.

Everyone gets psyched for October to celebrate Halloween, but there's another cause to rally around this month. Don't get us wrong, we love getting dressed up and hitting the parties, but breast cancer awareness is something that needs our attention. A lot of hotels feel the same way and are marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a slew of specials and activities to raise funds for the cause.
Find out how hotels are commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month after the jump.
You know how it is on your beach vacay. Spend a bit too long in the sun and you go a charming shade of pink. By the looks of things in Hollywood, Florida, the same can happen to hotels. This is how the WalkAbout Beach Resort looks now. But not so long ago it sported a different Lily Pulitzer-esque beach shade—and not everyone is happy with the change.
In fact, according to the Miami Herald, "City officials hated it, neighbors hated it, locals hated it."
What's this? Yet another new hotel in Miami? While we've been gearing up for the opening of the JW Marriott Maquis downtown, and Soho Beach House in South Beach, another boutique hotel has quietly opened its doors further north, just across the water from the Bal Harbour Shops.
Meet Daddy O, a sister (brother?) property to a hotel with the same name in Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Yes, another member of the "Jersey Shore" has landed in Miami but unlike Snooki, The Situation and JWOWW, this hotel plans on staying a while.

Magenta hues at the W Times Square
We've written about green hotel packages, but pink? The "Share Your Heart" promotion from New York's family of W Hotels proves that philanthropy and pleasure-seeking aren't mutually exclusive, and they've set out to give back to guests who want to do the same.
October, as you may well know, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Perhaps you've already pitched in by collecting and sending in pink yogurt tops or attended a fundraising event, but you can also contribute by booking the "Share Your Heart" package at an NYC W location. Being uber femme-themed, it's perfect for girlfriends looking for a brief New York getaway in the fantasy-Manhattan vein of Sex and the City. We also see that the W San Francisco and W Hoboken have joined in on the charitable efforts, and we're tickled you-know-what color by their generosity.

Everybody likes happy hour, but what we love even more than drinking discounts is drinking for a cause. Luckily, we can now feel philanthropic as we sip and swig thanks to the Viceroy Santa Monica’s new Cocktails for a Cause happy hour at Whist.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every Tuesday from 6:00-9:00pm throughout the month of October, when drinkers, uh, we mean guests, order a specialty “Strawberry Vice” cocktail, 100% of the proceeds will go to the Beautiful Day Foundation.
The Strawberry Vice will cost you $10, and we got our hands on the top secret recipe: half an ounce of homemade strawberry jam, 1.5 ounces of Remy Martin VS, and 1.5 ounces of champagne put into a shaker with ice, stirred and served I a champagne flute. The pink cocktail should match your pink breast cancer awareness ribbon perfectly. We’ll cheers to that.
