5 Not Lame Gifts For Dads on Father's Day

June 12, 2014 at 2:35 PM | by | Comment (1)

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.

Hotel Lautner Wants You To Have It All For Fourth Of July

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 67710 San Antonio Street [map], Desert Hot Springs, CA, United States, 92240
June 6, 2014 at 9:02 AM | by | Comments (0)

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.

Swiss Bliss: Swissotels Offering 20 Percent Off Summer Stays

May 28, 2014 at 9:18 AM | by | Comment (1)

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.

Lyft Is Giving Free Rides to Vagabonds (Inn Guests, That Is)

May 22, 2014 at 4:33 PM | by | Comment (1)

Vagabond Inn isn't exactly the design-forward, amenity-loving hotel brand that millennials are (supposedly) going after these days but a few of the budget hotels in Southern California are getting hip to an app the young kids love.

Vagabond Inns have partnered with Lyft, the pink moustache-wearing ride-sharing service that lets you book and pay for a pick-up via your smartphone. Guests at VIs will get a complimentary first ride worth up to $25, provided they are a new user to Lyft. All guests have to do is call the front desk for the special offer code and put it into the app when booking their ride.

Meanwhile, rates at a Vagabond Inn probably won't be much more than that free Lyft plus breakfast and WiFi are included.

Hotel Week to Hit Boston on February 16th

January 15, 2014 at 11:27 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sad that New York Hotel Week is over? Don't be too sad! Hotel Week Boston is coming up!

From February 16 - 23, several Boston hotels are offering major discounts on their rooms, averaging about 25-30 percent off, making it a good deal for those willing to brave the cold in Beantown or for Bostonians who want to escape their own digs. Conveniently, the hotel week happens the same time as the school vacation week.

A list of the participating hotels can be found on Facebook including several of the city's top luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton (25 percent off bed and breakfast page for a deluxe suite); The Four Seasons (25 percent off their best available rate); The Liberty Hotel (30 percent off of the best available rate and overnight valet parking) and the W Boston (30 percent discount off of the best available rate and in-room wifi.) Another deal we like is at The Charles Hotel where rooms cost $199 a night and include ice skating passes at the hotel's rink, free parking and daily breakfast.

During hotel week, guests can also get in on some other deals around Boston, including a two-for-one offer from the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston and the Franklin Park Zoo, and 20% off tickets to Jose Mateo Ballet Company’s winter show, "Unbridled." Now, how do you like them apples?
