We can hardly believe that May is practically over but we're quite happy about that because it means we have a three-day weekend coming up! Yup Memorial Day is upon us and while HotelChatter is taking a break from hotel-hunting, we know that some of you may have some last-minute travel lust. If so, check out these Five Hotels for a Last-Minute Memorial Day Getaway.
1. Andaz Hotel San Diego: Pool Party Sundays begin this Sunday at 2pm and will run through September. Local guest DJs will spin tunes, and complimentary massages and mani/pedis will be offered by local boutique Spa Velia.
Rates this weekend start at $249 for an Andaz queen. Looking to just stay one night? Pick Sunday when rooms drop to $199.
This picture of Miranda is sexier than the Guoman's new SATC package.
It surprises us that despite all the SATC packages going down around the place, we havenít had more London hotels offering their own deals. There was the Dorchesterís package, of course, but until now very little else.
So well done to Guoman hotels for having a go. The only problem is, the package isnít very, um, sexy. Although it is straight to the point. So although itís called The Guoman Shopping Experience, weíll be referring to it as The Miranda.
Book The Miranda and youíll get £50 in Selfridges vouchers. There. Thatís it. No free cocktails, no stupid style consultations, no interconnecting rooms for you and your girlies. Just moolah.
O.M.G. Just 20 more sleeps before Sex and the City 2 comes out! As the poor people who live in Greenwich Village near the Magnolia Bakery know, each new batch of anything SATC-related sends more busloads of over-excited 20-somethings dreaming of Manolos to their doorsteps. But this time, with the movie set in Abu Dhabi, perhaps New Yorkers will get a break. With any luck, all those Carrie Bradshaw acolytes will head over to Moroccoówhere SATC 2 was actually shotóand line up for some cous cous instead.
So, La Mamounia, brace yourself. The Sex and the City fans are coming!
Oh, Stanford Blatch You are too cute.
Years ago when Sex and the City first debuted on HBO, the Manolo-filled closets and Cosmo-soaked nights of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte lured women to the Big Apple in the hopes that they too could be that fabulous. Some succeeded and others went to work in retail, and now the Sex and the City lifestyle is marketed mainly at tourists.
If you're one of these travelers headed for NYC soonperhaps just in time for the Sex and the City 2 movie premierethen there is a man who can make you wildest SATC dreams come true as part of your hotel stay. His name is Jarl Haugedal and he wants to be your personal Stanford Blatch, aka your best gay friend with whom you can shop, dine and drink your way around NYC.

As Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda prepare to hit the big screen again with the debut of Sex and the City 2 on May 28th, the themed hotel packages are rolling in, and we've haven't seen any more true to the Sex and the City spirit than this new one from New York's Gansevoort Hotel. (We'll give The Brits an "A" for effort.)
Valid for stays from April 30th Ė September 7th at $545 for a Deluxe room or $785 for a Suite, the hotel's Sex and the City 2 package wants you to "strap on the Louboutins, throw the Chanel handbag over the shoulder" and have a good time in the city with the girlsor by yourself with a new friend *wink*. Here's what you'll get:
Not that the Dorchester would sell sex, of course Ė in fact, itís not even mentioning the word. But it just so happens that its Girls Weekend package is available around the same time that a certain flick is being released (from May 1 to April 30 2011), and it just so happens that itís designed for four ladies with a love of cocktails and corsages.

You can see right there on the poster that the movie isnít out until May (the 28th), but that hasnít stopped NYC hotels getting their Sex and the City packages ready for all the Carrie wannabes. And since a full SATC experience will put a dent in your Fendi purse, we decided to bring you the details now so you can start saving.
First up, thereís the Waldorf Astoriaís Sex and the City Movie Package, available from May 1ĖAugust 30.
After "sleeping around" at several of New York's hotels for the filming of Sex and the City 2, Carrie Bradshaw and co. have moved on to Morocco. Cindy Adams reports that the cast and crew are filming at the Amajena Hotel in Marrakech.
The Amanjena is, as the name suggests, a part of Aman Resorts, a luxury hotel collection with truly exotic locations. And it's so exotic that there aren't even standard room accommodations here. Just "Pavilions and Mansions" which start at $1,050 a night (and that's before taxes.)
So we're guessing that this hotel might just be a filming location and not a place where the cast and crew are shacking up for a few weeks. After all, would SATC rather spend money on hotel rooms or the wardrobe for the gals? Sigh, it is a question we have to ask ourselves many, many, many times.
No word on how a trip to Marrakech fits into the storyline but we just hope that Charlotte doesn't have any, um, "difficulties" eating the local food here.
As if Chuck Bass buying the place wasn't enough glitz and glamour for The Empire Hotel, the Sex and The City crew were filming in the hotel lobby (pictured above) all day Monday and a spy sent us some scoop on what was going on.
Someone saw a movie poster of Smithís new film. It looks like an epic war film shot in the desert where heís carrying a small boy to safety.
There were about 200 extras and Samantha was wearing a short, silver body hugging number with a cream wrap. SJP was in a floor length, black dress with a egg-shell colored wrap.
Ok, so it's not that much but it looks like Smith is in some big action movie and the gals attend the movie premiere party at the hotel. Also, we heard Chris Noth aka Mr. Big was on set too. And there is now word that Penelope Cruz will be in this scene as well.
We have to say these are all major improvements at the hotel from the Kardashians.
Yes, Sex and The City fervor has swept up New York City once again and much like the first SATC movie, we've learned hotels will play a part in the show. While The Bryant Park Hotel got love from the four ladies the last go-around, The Plaza, which re-opened in February 2008 after a lengthy renovations process, will make an appearance this time. And we're happy to say the legendary hotel's cameo will take us back to the Plaza's glory days.
We reckon the hotel market's nearly reached saturation point with Sex and the City packages, but this one at least distinguishes itself by not being in New York. Some might say this makes it kind of irrelevant to SATC, but we don't mind since they're call it the Sex in Sin City escape package.
This deal is being put on by the The Signature at MGM Grand and of course, it's a package designed for four girlfriends to take together.
By now, we all know Manhattan hotels have been giddily banking on the popularity of the new Sex and the City movie, rolling out everything from SATC-themed packages (for Midwestern ladies looking to replicate the girls' lifestyles for a weekend) to "No Sex in the City" promos (for those of us who are sick of all the hype and, you know, our boyfriends).
But we think Hotel Giraffe has every reason to create a SATC-themed package: the hotel's penthouse was used as the set for Big's apartment in the movie (who knew?)
Hotel Giraffe's new "Diva's Only Weekend Experience" is the perfect getaway for girlfriends looking to "channel Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda" or maybe for single women who just want to grab a friend and escape to the city to -- if we may quote Fergie -- "stop chasing them boys and shop some more."
