It’s that time of year when family and friends gather together to gobble down a turkey dinner, yet there you are—far away from the happy gathering. But if you find yourself in Hong Kong, London or Rome these hotels will help make you forget that you’re abroad with their traditional Thanksgiving dinners, minus Aunt Minnie of course.
The Langham Hong Kong’s Main St. Deli has a traditional Thanksgiving menu with all the trimmings. For HK$318 ($41) per person, the three-course Thanksgiving menu features comfort food that is sure to fill your tummy with yummy goodness including Maine crab cakes; butternut squash bisque; roasted US Tom turkey with apple, sage and cornbread stuffing; sautéed brussel sprouts; buttered baby carrots; honeyed sweet potatoes; whipped potatoes; pan gravy and cranberry sauce. And that’s not all, folks. Completing the meal is a choice of pumpkin cheesecake or maple glazed pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream.
With the Linger Longer For Less offer, rates start at HK$2,210 ($285).
More gobbledy-goodness after the jump!
Honestly, life in the Big Apple is stressful enough without having to worry about the shopping, cooking and cleaning up of Thanksgiving -- isn't it supposed to be a relaxing holiday? Give yourself a break by making a reservation at one of these five hotels, which are generously offering to stuff the turkey and carve the ham for you.
1. The Eventi Hotel
For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and the first night of Hanukkah are on the same night, giving rise to the rather excellent neologism: Thanksgivukkah! At Eventi's Humphrey restaurant, you won't be forced to choose between latkes and turkey, because they will be serving both.
The restaurant, where tables will be decorated with both a Menoraj and Cornucopia, is offering a menu of both traditional Thanksgiving and Hanukkah favorites – available at the restaurant and in-room. Turkey will be served with a side of latkes and applesauce; pumpkin pie with a side of gelt, and cranberry sauce will be molded in the shape of a Dreidel. If the whole Thanskgivukkah concept is blowing your mind a touch too much, never fear: the restaurant will happily honor requests for a more traditional dinner, too. Dishes are priced between $12 and $23.

What’s that? You said you’re sick of turkey? As Jay-Z would say “We don’t believe you, you need more people!” Or, in this case, you need more options. And we’ve got plenty—in good ole fashioned sandwich form.
We asked hotel restaurants to share their best post-Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwiches and they delivered (seriously, some deliver to your room). So, just in case you thought your feastin' was finished? We’re bringing you Turkey Tales Part 2: The Sandwich Remix.
The goal is two-fold, to get you out of the house as you've probably been cornered by relatives for four days and need a nice hotel restaurant escape. And two--those leftover bits of the turkey that you cooked need a home--and it's between a nice brioche, baby.

We hope you remembered back in the Spring when we told you the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade route would change this year and booked your hotel stay accordingly.
However, Hurricane Sandy and early snowfall in parts of the country has caused cancelled travel into the city, so some late birds (we won’t call you turkeys) may luck out and score last-minute hotel bookings and get a glimpse of those awesome floats in the flesh.
Let’s be clear though, many of these rooms may more now than normal, and some come with a minimum night’s stay (which won’t be so bad if you’re staying on for Black Friday shopping! anyway! Whee!). And if ANY of the hotels below show up on HotelTonight at noon? Grab 'em up, and schmooze like heck for a good room!
Just a few other things to know:
The turkey is dead! Long live the turkey sandwich!
Sure, Thanksgiving only lasts for a day; but that doesn't mean we can't keep stuffing our faces with turkey all weekend long! Appropriately, the food-loving Loews Hotels are planning a week-long turkey sandwich menu addition for all of their properties—starting right now!
Through Sunday evening, each hotel across the country will be serving up a local spin on the traditional leftover turkey meat sandwich. From turkey sushi rolls at Loews Lake Las Vegas to Loews Miami Beach's Cuban-style sandwich, the creations will be diverse and delicious.
In New York's Loews Regency, keep an eye out for the chef's trio of sliders, served on different artisan breads with gravy and stone-ground mustard-cranberry mayonnaise. Yum!
In Miami for Thanksgiving? Congrats! It's going to be 77 degrees on Thursday. And we assume if you're visiting--and staying in a hotel--you won't be looking for a frozen bird and a stove, but a decadent spread to enjoy before stumbling back to your room for a post-feast nap.
Here are our top five picks for Thanksgiving tables on the beach:
1. The Fontainebleau: Because, hey, Ricky Martin's there! Also, they have a bunch of restaurants to choose from, all doing a holiday meal. If you want a Chinese spin, opt for Hakkasan. Italian? Scarpetta.

For the second year in a row, the W Washington DC graciously offered to host the lucky turkey that had been spared his 400°F fate. The turkey traveled from Pennsylvania to Washington DC in order to get pardoned by the President himself, and while in town, got to spend the night at the hotel. Pet-friendly amenities and all.
A custom room was offered up to the turkey, including: added sawdust on the floor as well as a W-branded "munchie box" filled with soy, corn and cranberries. Wow, they really step it up for these birds! We can't remember the last time a hotel modified its regular room service menu options for us. Though we're pretty sure it involved some sort of extra fee.
Being low season here in London, many American travelers opt to take advantage of deals, however minor, on travel to this notoriously expensive city. However, Yanks who have chosen to make their rounds on double-decker buses this week sacrifice being on mother soil during Thanksgiving, a huge trade off that's sure to leave tourists pining for a taste of tryptophan and pumpkin pie. Tough luck in kebab and chippy town.

Considering the super-high standards of hotel restaurants in New York (Maze at The London NYC, Maialino at Gramercy Park, and The Ace's The Breslin all come to mind), no one could possibly fault you for ditching the entire fam and taking yourself to a nice dinner in midtown (or Wall Street, as the case may be).
Check out these delightful dining options. With expertly-crafted menus and warm, inviting dining rooms to match, we can think of at least a few things you'll be grateful for: among them, not having to do the dishes.
The London NYC: First up, Gordon Ramsay's Manhattan jewel on West 54th St. The 2-Michelin Star Gordon Ramsay at the London is doing it up with caramelized Long Island duck breast, served with sweet rutabaga, potato rosti and Szechwan consomme. While that menu is going for $185pp, a slightly more affordable option is at Maze, where $95pp gets you a four-course meal with slow-roasted turkey, confit leg a la creme, or roasted cannon of lamb.

If Thanksgiving is the one time of year when NYC's Herald Square can actually become relevant again (Macy's parade, hello?), then it was with good foresight that Marriott waited until this week to announce their new midtown Courtyard property. The worldwide hotel brand will plant a new Courtyard by Marriott Herald Square inside the former Atlantic Bank of New York Building, on the corner of 35th Street and Sixth Avenue.
This news also coincides (then again, in this business, coincidences don't really exist) with Macy's announcement last Tuesday that the flagship Herald Square store will be receiving a $400 million makeover.
