Made in Manhattan Kate in Manhattan Middleton in Manhattan! If you’ve read any serious newspaper today, you’ll know that Kate and Wills, occasionally known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, touched down in New York yesterday for a two-night stay - the first time either of them have been to the Big Apple. A historic occasion, then. Which lucky hotel did they pick to bestow their charms and future booking increase on?

The Carlyle.

The royals – or this couple, anyway – have history with the Carlyle. Princess Diana stayed there twice – first in 1995, and then in 1997, just two months before she died. This time around, a 200-strong crowd was waiting for five-months-pregnant Kate and William.

The Royal Baby Has No Name But Already There's a Hotel Cocktail in His Honor

Where: 1c Portland Place, London, United Kingdom
July 23, 2013 at 4:08 PM | by | ()

The Royal Baby, aka son of the Prince William and Kate Middleton (or more properly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), arrived yesterday at 4:24pm weighing eight pounds and six ounces and reportedly sporting more hair than Wills.

Yet before he even made his debut outside the hospital today, The Langham London had unveiled their celebratory cocktail for the boy at their Artesian bar.

Called "The Royal Toast", the drink is a champagne cocktail created by International Bartender of The Year Alex Kratena that combines Tapatio tequila, cedar wood syrup, lemon juice and Peychaud’s bitters with Ruinart blanc de blancs. The drink is then served in a coupe wrapped in a scented blue crepe paper. It costs £16.50 and will be served only until August 22nd. Meanwhile, rates upstairs at the hotels start around $365 a night.

Cute, or Creepy? Grosvenor House Builds A Nursery For Kate Middleton's Baby

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.

This Might Be The Most Exciting Thing to Happen to Santa Barbara Hotels Ever

July 6, 2011 at 11:42 AM | by | ()

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.

Where To Watch That Wedding In London (If You Must)

April 28, 2011 at 10:17 AM | by | ()

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.

You're either really into The Royal Wedding or totally not, so for those who are, we've got some exciting hotel gossip today.

There's been much talk over where Kate Middleton will hold her hen party, where she'll stay before the wedding and what hotel the couple will pick for their honeymoon. Finally—finally—we can confirm an answer for the first two questions: London's super-British 5-star property The Goring. CNN is reporting that not only will Kate spend tomorrow night—her last night as a single woman—in one of the just-renovated top-floor suites (which boats silk-lined walls and a baby grand piano), but that Kate's parents will also be holing up here.

Kate Middleton's Tiara and Engagement Ring Now Available To Eat

April 27, 2011 at 1:12 PM | by | ()

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!

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.

More From the Royal Wedding Ripoffs Department

April 8, 2011 at 2:17 PM | by | ()

While hotels around the world go package mad for the Royal Wedding, Londoners are also trying to cash in on the nuptials by advertising their spare rooms, sofa beds and houses on sites such as gumtree, Airbnb and rent my house.

Even estate agents are listing rentals for that week whilst home owners jet off abroad on their holidays.

But if you’re thinking these alternatives will be cheaper than a hotel, think again. Some of them are charging a hefty price with one double room in a flatshare listed for £2,400 per week! For a room with shared bathroom? Royal Rip Off!
