The Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, which opened nearly a year ago, is making seriously good use of the historic United Artists Theater that's adjacent to the property. In September, Coldplay hosted a special concert for their latest album release and now, a special preview of Paul Thomas Anderson's surf noir based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.
The movie/book is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private investigator/pothead named Doc through a series of strange criminal adventures. So it's only fitting that the movie will screen at the Ace DTLA with Anderson and actors Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom in attendance.
Even better, guests who are staying at the hotel that night will get a free ticket to the screening and custom vinyl records of the film score by Johnny Greenwood. Rooms are still open on December 1 for around $240 a night but if you use the promo code Doc, you'll get a medium room for just $200.
Expect to see more of "Inherent Vice" at the Ace in LA and also in New York and London as gallery exhibitions expanding on the "Inherent Vice" themes will open.

The best things in life, of course, are always free. Free breakfast? Thanking you. Free WiFi? As it should be. Free fitness classes? That might actually persuade us to sign up for them.
Spa-with-rooms The Oaks At Ojai (in Ojai, CA, of course) has just announced 20 themed weeks and weekends for the next six months, with up to four classes on said theme per day. The best thing? Like the standard Oaks classes, these will be free. Why go to a place like this to relax?
Now that they've seemingly made their impression upon locals across America, we've seen all sorts of attempts by ride share services Uber and Lyft to break into the tourism market the past few months, turning their attention to hotel guests. The Hyatt app now includes the Uber app within it, and Lyft gave guests of the Vagabond a code to use for $25 off their first ride. The latest spotting comes from the Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki, where cards offering a free $30 ride greets guests upon check in.
The catch is that you have to be a new user to redeem the deal - obviously the goal is to get new people to sign up, though it'd be nice if they threw a bone to those of us who are already members, since taxis are everywhere in Waikiki, and it is sometimes easier to just step outside and have staff whistle a cab than go through the process of requesting a private ride.

Were you one of the lucky ones to
wait in a line forever pick up an iPhone 6 last week? Congrats! You've now got a bendable phone in your pocket. Er, we mean, you can totally get bonus hotel rewards from The Grand Hyatt New York.
The hotel is offering iPhone 6 users complimentary Hyatt Gold Passport points, although there are a few catches. First, you have to actually stay at the Grand Hyatt New York with your new phone. Then, upon check-out, show the front desk that you posted a photo of your hotel stay somewhere on social media from your iPhone 6. You have to have tagged the hotel in the photo in some way too.
If all looks well, then 600 complimentary Hyatt Gold Passport points will be dropped into your account. If you don't have an account, the hotel will help you set one up. That's pretty cool, you know, if you were already planning on staying at the hotel.
The offer is available through October 16, 2014. Rates at the hotel start at $299 a night next weekend.

Bicoastal travelers, you're in luck. Nancy J. Friedman Public Relations, the company who founded Hotel Week NYC , is bringing the discounts to the West Coast with the inaugural Hotel Week LA, happening from November 29-December 14.
Fourteen hotels (most of which are not NJFPR clients) will be offering discounted rates during the designated hotel week, such as the Andaz West Hollywood, The Redbury in Hollywood (pictured above), Mr. C Beverly Hills, The LINE Hotel and The London West Hollywood. Rates are typically around $200 a night, so long as you mention Hotel Week or use the special Hotel Week promo code.
Go here to check out the full list of hotels participating. You can make your reservations for November now and less than a month later on January 3, Hotel Week NYC will resume.
If we can't afford both a pied a terre in NYC and a beachfront house in Malibu, then this might be the next best thing.

The problem with Paris isn’t the famously rude service. It isn’t the highly priced, indigestible food. It isn’t even the lines of tourists snaking round the corner at every vaguely visitable site. No, the problem with Paris is that you pretty much have to remortgage your house for every night you stay there.
That’s why we were so delighted with the arrival of citizenM – it may be at Charles de Gaulle airport, but on ne peut sniffer pas at starting rates of €67.15 ($90).
But now a group of five Parisian hotels has gone one better, with a temporary project called Payez Ce Que Vous Voulez – yes, really, pay what you want. Even if that’s €1 ($1.34). Think of it as a pop-up affordable Paris project.
The hotels are a clutch of three and four star properties in the Opéra district (pretty central, if not particularly beautiful), and according to their project website, you’re invited to evaluate their “welcome, quality of service, room comfort and decoration” and then pay up accordingly on departure.

You're a good man, Clark.
Dear Dad, we're sorry that you've suffered through years of opening pointless gifts on Father's Day like the bland ties, the boxes of golf balls you didn't need, the fad workout equipment you did need but didn't know how to operate and for that goofy Batman water bottle with "DAD" written on the back in permanent marker (Actual gift I gave my dad. I was 9.)
This year, there's no excuse for ho-hum gifts to give your father this Sunday, thanks to these hotels and their totally not lame offerings.
For The COOL DAD: The Hotel Palomar in San Francisco has put together a "Tie One On & Throw One Back" package that gives men a one night stay at the hotel, a beer-fueled private shopping appointment at the cool casual Bonobos Guide Shop; 20 percent off Bonobos purchases; either a beard trim or a straight razor shave at People's Barber Shop; and a "Get Me a Juice Box" Lunch Box at the hotel's rooftop bar, serving two cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, a thermos filled with a Hot Toddy and a little bar snack. Rates start at $259 a night but the package must be booked two weeks in advance. Go online at www.hotelpalomar-sf.com and use code TIEON or call 866-373-4941.
For The RUM LOVIN' DAD: The Mandarin Oriental New York is offering a special Father's Day rum tasting flight of the Facundo Rum Collection in their Asiate restaurant, the Lobby Lounge and the MObar. Each selection of the Eximo, Exquisito and Paraiso aged sipping rums can also be paired with a cheese plate. Simply sipping on the rums is $65 per person while doing the cheese pairing is $85 per person. Make your reservations by calling 212-805-8800. The tasting ends on Sunday.

It’s one of the Coachella Valley’s most unique retreats, and now you can get the midcentury classic Hotel Lautner all to yourself – for Fourth of July no less.
The John Lautner-designed hotel (though actually it’s more of a self-catering option with four self-contained rooms, each with a kitchenette and private terrace) will be closing for the hot months of July and August, but before it shuts its doors, it’s offering a special Fourth of July weekend package: buy out the entire compound, which gets you all four rooms, the saline plunge pool, fire pit and BBQ.
The package costs $1900 for the Friday to Sunday, or $2850 for Friday to Monday, including tax. Considering each room usually costs $225 plus tax – midweek, low season – that’s not too shabby.
Rosewood Hotels and Resorts command a pretty penny but this summer, there's a way to enjoy the lovely and luxurious collection for (slightly) less.
Below is a list of the 15 Rosewood hotels and resorts and their special "More Rosewood" summer offers, all of which include a complimentary night (after booking sever consecutive nights, of course.) And yes, the gorgeous new Rosewood London, the classic Carlyle Hotel in NYC and the recently renovated Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in New Mexico, are included. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
Now, that Memorial Day has passed, summer is (un)officially here and Swissotels are enticing guests with a new summer offer--20 percent off best available rates.
All Swissotels are participating in the deal from Sydney to Amsterdam, Phuket and Chicago with additional benefits thrown in like a complimentary room upgrade and a late check-out (if available.) Swissotels is also offering delivery charges for room service to be waived for guests who book online (as if we'd do it any other way!)
There are some terms and conditions to follow but nothing major. First, you need to book at least seven days in advance. The savings can't be combined with any offer except "Book Smart, Stay Smarter" which has pretty much the same perks. But other than those few things, the deal is good from May 31-September 30, 2014.
