It's time for a (romantic) walk down memory lane with a HotelChatter flashback!
Last week, we were embarrassed by certain hotels who had released eye-rolling, groan-inducing (not the good kind) 50 Shades of Grey-themed packages. To be clear, we weren't embarrassed because we're prudish people, but rather, the grab (again, not the good kind) for guests was obvious, uninspired, unsexy and just silly.
But a longtime reader reminded us that hotels were not always pushing serious sexytime in their packages or in their minibars. (Henry Blodget, this sexy history lesson is for you!)
Remember how daring it was when the Bryant Park Hotel in NYC partnered up with The Pleasure Chest in mid-2007? Guests could order their toys from The Pleasure Chest directly through the hotel by dialing zero on the room phone. Later, a discreet grey box would arrive in their room with the item or items the guests purchased. (Coincidentally, the Bryant Park Hotel first opened its doors on Valentine's Day in 2001.)
Hotels aren't very creative when it comes to Valentine's Day unless there's a kinky movie tie-in, but even then, the offerings end up being more embarrassing than romantic. So when we see romance packages that we like, it's a rare thing. And of course, we're going to tell you all about it.
InterContinental Los Angeles has put together an over-the-top hotel package that includes something we actually really like--a private outdoor screening of a movie of your choice. Check out the set-up! The hotel could almost offer this as an a la carte offering, for those not flush enough to book the whole romantic package.
Speaking of the whole package, it's priced at $14,000, also includes two-night accommodations in the Royal Suite with views of the Hollywood Hills, a chilled bottle of Veuve Clicquot la Grade Dame 1998 and chocolate-dipped strawberries; a private five-course dinner for two in the Grand Salon Ballroom, adorned with candles, flowers and dim red lighting from overhead LEDs, a private piano performance during dessert, a spa treatment for two in a couples’ villa at Spa InterContinental, and a round-trip chauffer service in a Rolls Royce, provided by Black & White car rental, up the PCH to Malibu Wines, where couples will enjoy a day of sipping and relaxing and leave with a bottle from their selection of award-winning labels.
But hurry, the package needs to be booked today for stays this weekend. Call 310-284-6500 for more information.

We curse the persons who decided to release the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie on Valentine's Day Weekend. Because that means not only is our inbox overflowing with the usual schmaltzy hotel romance packages, we are now getting deluged with FSOG-themed hotel packages, promising some sort of "kinky" aspect to the hotel stay.
Despite our initial desire to quickly delete the packages (sorry, but we still haven't recovered from the hotel packages tied in with the book back in 2012), we've since had a change of libido and thought it would be fun for you to see these packages for your own entertainment.
Just a note: we've kept the hotels "blindfolded" so to speak so that they won't feel embarrassed about their spanking. (Of course, you can always Google the package to find out which hotel it is.)
And just so you know, the only acceptable hotels to role-play Christian Grey and Ana Steele is the Heathman Hotel in Portland, which was actually mentioned in the book. (Can't make it to the hotel? Um, maybe buy a pillow then?) along with the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver whose wood paneled Lieutenant Governor's suite is featured in the movie. (Rates of the suite start at $1,199 a night. No toys included.)
Because who doesn't love a man who irons?
There was one thing that really stood out for us when we stayed at Moxy Milan last week. A free-flow work-eat-drink-socialize space? Nope. A surfeit of millennials selfie-ing their way around said work-eat-drink-socialize space? Nah – although it made a lovely change not to be the only one obsessively photographing every single yoghurt in the to-go fridge.
No, it was the men. Sexy, semi-naked men. Tattooed, ripped, even dressed – man flesh at every turn. Behold!
A shirtless man on the room key:
A shirtless tattooed man in the ironing room (no, those abs aren’t making you see double, he was on the inside and outside wall – and the outside one was more graphic #boxers):
Planning a dirty weekend in London? We've already declared the rooms at the Sanctum Soho to be among the Sexiest hotel Rooms Alive! but, look out, the hotel's BXG Suite aka room 404, is possibly now the sexiest of the sexy after teaming up with luxury erotic specialists, Box Of Grey.
The suite is decorated with "voyeuristic" images of models Jenny Goodall and Tessa Kuragi by photographer Ray Burmiston and, if you pay £350 extra (on top of Junior Suite rates that start at $620) , comes with a "Bijoux Sanctum" flight case filled with restraints, a BXG leather mask, grey tie, Lelo Whip, feather, latex Bondage Bow and bullet vibrator.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith (of the boutique hotel guide, not the Brangelina movie) recently celebrated their ten-year anniversary by handing out their Smith Awards at a packed out event on London’s Brick Lane. Among the various categories was “Sexiest Hotel Room”, an award that was taken home by one of the first high-style, design-led hotels of the city: Blakes London, specifically for its Corfu Suite.
Watching the count down from 10 to runner up had us wondering whether we agreed with the result. Was this the sexiest hotel room? What would be our pick, and why? And what would you, dear reader, think?

SuperClubs has removed the clothing-optional, adults-only Hedonism II Jamaican resort from its dossier of all-inclusive properties. This comes after it unloaded unprofitable sister resort Hedonism III in 2011 and in earlier 2012 sold Breezes Trelawny to a Canadian tour company called Sunwing. Breezes Montego Bay was also let go in 2009.
The company recently announced that the sale of the Negril hotel has finally been completed to an investment group named Marshmallow Ltd., headed by financier Harry Lange, and made up of partners Jon Gross of UnWind Travel (aka Fluffernutters), some of SuperClubs' own chairman's family members, and Kevin Levee, the hotel's current general manager.
The sale will not change Hedonism’s name, however, a $10 million room renovation is planned, which will certainly be welcome for the 30-year old hotel.
More importantly, what will remain the same will be the resort’s day-to-day operations, which include saucy, devil-may-care fun that its patrons, often repeat guests, relish.

The world cringed in horror this weekend as Nadya Suleman made the weird jump from eccentric, attention-seeking mother of fourteen children to porn star. TMZ reported that Octomom showed up to do her first video shoot at a mansion in San Fernando Valley, and actually did a pretty good job. Great.
Now that she's elevated herself into the lucrative (we hope) world of doin' it in front of the camera, a plain old hotel stay has the potential for so much more. So without further ado, here are a few places that might better suit her...purposes.
Photo booths are always a fun way to lighten the mood in any hotel lobby or bar, and in Suleman's case, could be a great money-saver if she ever needs to "rehearse" for her next shoot. Photos taken at The Shore Hotel's digital photo booth can only be emailed or shared via Twitter and Facebook—so whatever the self-loving Octomom may get up to in there, we at least know she won't be wasting paper.

If you happened to be in Miami Beach a couple of weekends ago, you might have seen what you thought was a mirage: a beach volleyball tournament played by the most beautiful, bronzed people on earth. And if you missed out on this walking daydream--the Ludus Athletics Model Beach Volleyball Tournament--you get another chance to watch the pretty people jump and spike this weekend.
That is if you can hitch a ride over to Bimini in the Bahamas. That's where the finalist teams--of models (it bears repeating)--will stage a rematch of the SoBe Tournament, to break in the Sakara Beach Club.
A luxury beach resort launching a new beach club--the European kind with sexy day beds, live DJs and tons of delicious things to eat and drink--is cause for celebration, no? Well, Bimini Bay Resort and Marina certainly thinks so--which is why they're flying in a slew of models to celebrate the launch of their new Sakara Beach Club.
A "Salon Room"
In 2009, burlesque performer and all-around awesome celeb Dita Von Teese tweeted a Paris hotel recommendation to her followers. At that time, she named the art deco Hotel Lutetia, but in 2012, her loyalties lie elsewhere.
Earlier today, Dita answered the hotel recommendation question again for a fan:
The Hotel Raphael is now not only Dita-approved, but moved to the top of our list after only a few minutes' time spent browsing their website. Those rooms! That furniture! The terrace in the Arc de Triomphe suite! Le sigh.
Glamor like this won't come cheaply, however; rooms start at 315 Euro per night, or 465 Euro if you want the lowest level of suite. That said, these rooms would make the perfect setting for a honeymoon, photo shoot, bachelorette night...etc. Thanks again, Dita!

In "news" that will surprise practically no one, Miami topped a recent poll as the country's Vainest City.
To prove that the honor is not just a bunch of hot air, the Sagamore hotel is out to show that it, for one, is sexy and it knows it. Yes, that's the name of their new package: Sexy & We Know It.
But the whole vain Miami thing got us thinking: what other hotels around town might have helped earn the city this label? We're thinking The Setai and W South Beach, for sure, as well as the newly-revamped-and-shouting-it-from-the-rooftops, Shelborne South Beach.
Just try to pass a newsstand this month without double-taking at the scantily clad model Kate Upton, gracing the annual Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Issue. For 2012, the gaggle of photographers, stylists and models headed down under to Australia's Great Barrier Reef and Palm Cove, but of course did a stint in the capital, Sydney.
Before heading out to the azure blue of the world famous reef, the girls hunkered down at the Shangri-La Sydney, where we're guessing they probably had their makeup and wardrobe tests while savoring the ridiculous views the hotel has of both the opera house and the Harbour Bridge.
And then it was off to Cairns, and to another hotelthe Shangri-La at The Marina. The girls may have checked out many months ago, but anyone can score a night at the same hotel; we found rates of around 145 AUD ($155) for the end of February.
