We don't know about you, but the post-holiday void has left us in need of a little diversion, so we're just going to play along with all this Hotel Week business—however much it feels like a bootleg version of New York's more established Restaurant Week. Here to bolster a select batch of NYC hotels through the dreaded January slow season, the nine-day promotion starts today.
And to help you get excited, here are a few tips on ways to get the best bang for your buck.
#1. By saving money on the room, you can relax (read: spend) a little more at the hotel restaurant. For example, Lexington Brass, the glazed brick-lined brasserie on the ground floor of Hyatt 48Lex, has made a point of luring guests with delicious comfort food items like buttermilk fried chicken, deviled eggs with caviar, and, of course, our favorite, the jelly-filled doughnut pancakes.

No surprise here: professional egomaniac Kim Kardashian, who recently expressed a desire to open her own hotel in Dubai (and was swiftly shot down by the WSJ), is absolutely smitten with a particular keycard in Vegas. Why? Because it has her face on it.
Back in August, when The Mirage announced the opening of Kardashian Khaos, some gave it the thumbs up, and just as many outright disowned the hotel. Kinda like when that petition was circulated to cancel all Kardashian programming on the E! network. But unlike TV, which can always be shut off, a hotel takeover is slightly more cataclysmic. And when it gets to the point that you can't even enter your room without seeing their faces, that's surely grounds for hotel boycotting.
For a twitpic of the key card, see below!
Brace yourselves, the day's hotel news just got a lot more depressing. WSJ is reporting on a statement made by Kim Kardashian about opening her own branded hotel in the United Arab Emirates. In her words: "everything I think will be successful here."
Hmm, a self-obsessed reality TV star with delusions of starting her own hotel? Haven't we heard this one before? Also, Kim you might want to stop copying the Hilton sisters at some point.
Kim is currently touring the country solo, and was apparently so swept away by all the beautiful women there that she took to Twitter to make her feelings known. So, she's got millions of dollars, has already visited a few of the world's glitziest hotels, and has a thing for beautiful women? Judging from what we know of other well-known lady-loving hoteliers, Kim certainly seems to fit all the criteria. All we ask is that she lays off the houndstooth. That's not so much to ask, is it?

In the ever-expanding universe of Twitter, there is one particular trend @HotelChatter happens to quite enjoy: candid hotel room photos. These Twitpics range from stunning views to anti-views to celebrity tomfoolery and everything in between. And we can't get enough of 'em! Starting this week, we will begin featuring one "Twitpic of the Week" to commemorate our favorite hotel-themed snapshot. Got a favorite of your own? Want to show off your sweet suite? Send it in!
Life can be tough when you're the world's most famous reality TV star. So when @KimKardashian just needed a nice, prolonged armchair lounging sesh, who was gonna stop her? And if her handsome houndstooth dress happened to perfectly match the fabric on the chair, who was gonna complain about that either?
It seems like just last year Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney were moving into the penthouse suite at the Smyth Tribeca for their new reality show, "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." Wait, it was just last year that they were doing that. Now, they are back in the Big Apple again but the hotel rooms have changed (not to mention Kim's marital status.)
Instead of staying at Smyth, the girls have moved onto the Gansevoort Park and the party spot hotel on Park Avenue is only too happy to welcome Kim and her new husband to their penthouse suite. Page Six reports:
Kim Kardashian will be in monogrammed marriage heaven once she and new hubby Kris Humphries settle into their home at the Gansevoort Hotel on Park Avenue South. Sources tell us the pair, soon moving into a $7,000-a-night penthouse, will be reminded of their lavish nuptials--and their matching initials-- with K&K monogrammed towels, sheets, pillow cases and even Champagne bottles.

When we told you last week that Kim Kardashian's big-ass wedding had the Four Seasons Biltmore all booked up, we had no idea that the newly married couple would be spending their first night as husband and wife there as well. Yet
E! Online released photos sly photographers caught the couple exiting the hotel on Sunday morning.
Now in looking at the guest rooms and suites available at the hotel, we can safely assume that the couple, who now wear million dollar wedding bands, was not shacked up in a regular old guest room. But with eight one-bedroom suites and one Ty Warner cottage (also a one-bedroom) to choose from, we wonder which one was good enough for Kim and Kris. Um ok, that's an easy one.
Kim Kardashian is all set to marry NBA star Kris Humphries in a super spectacular wedding in Montecito, Calif. (just outside of Santa Barbara) that will probably put all celeb weddings to shame (to the tune of $20 million!)
And but of course, no celeb wedding is complete without a hotel stay. As it turns out, The Kardashians will be keeping up with all their guests by putting them up at the Four Seasons Biltmore while the family itself is spending the weekend at the nearby San Ysidro Ranch where private cottages go for $5,500 a night, according to Star Magazine.
While it's not quite clear where exactly the nuptials are happening--it's looking like San Ysidro Ranch might be the place--both hotels are completely booked up for the weekend.
Hmmm. Looks like Santa Barbara may have gone all out for the wrong royal couple this summer. Still, if you're interested in staying at the hotel favored by other reality stars, The Four Seasons has rooms next week starting at $595 a night.

As we all learned last fall, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian took over the Smyth Tribeca while filming their new E! show "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" and last night the very first episode of the show premiered. Naturally, we were stoked to see the inside of the hotel suite, notsomuch Kim and Kourt.
The girls "checked in" to the hotel and were sent up to the 8th floor penthouse suite where a pretty awesome two bedroom suite with a living room, dining area, full kitchen and an 800-sq.ft. outdoor terrace awaited them. The girls promptly ran outside on the terrace where Kourtney shouted, "The Kardashians are here!" Then Kim giggled and said, "We should throw something." Oh boy.
It turns out you don't have to go to Vegas, Dubai or Macau to experience some high roller fun--you can just go to Connecticut!
That's because the Foxwoods Resort and Casino has completed a brand new High Rollers Luxury Lanes and Lounge with 20 bowling lanes (six of 'em for VIPs), billiards tables, a two-level lounge with a piano and 50-seat marble bar, two full-service bars and more than 60 HDTVs. Already this place, which actually opened back in October, is fulfilling our New Year's Resolutions list for 2011 (see #4.)
In an article from Hospitality Design, we learn that the inspiration for the bowling lanes was actually "evoking the glamour of Las Vegas in the '20s and '30s." Interestingly enough, Vegas casinos weren't actually around in the 20s and the 30s.

Whenever there's another Kardashian TV show spin-off, you can be assured that another hotel will get caught in the Kardashian girls web of drama. This time it's the Smyth Hotel in TriBeCa.
Kourtney and her baby daddy will shack up here while Kourt and sister Kim will launch their Dash boutique somewhere in the city. (Khloe will presumably be orking on making a baby with hubby Lamar Odom back in LA.) NY Post reports:
They'll be using a penthouse at the Smyth Hotel for three months while they expand the family business and find Kim a man. A source said Scott Disick and baby Mason will live in the penthouse with Kourtney for the shoot, with the intention of relocating the family to New York permanently.
There's no word on when the family will move in (it could be happening right now!Toro Bar will be such a good idea, although we're personally excited about the space.
When ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush announced yesterday that he was handing in his Heisman trophy, Kim Kardashian was far, far, far away from the football drama at the Soho Hotel in London, the perennial fave for today's celebs (Jeremy "Too Much Sushi" Piven has been known to stay there as well.)
Jet lag is hitting me hard
We feel your pain Kimmy. We were up through 7am one night in London thanks to jetlag. Thankfully, it wasn't during our stay at the Tune Hotel but rather at the Hampshire Hotel in Leicester Square. But more on that later.
Bill O'Reilly may not approve of "The Graduate"-themed photoshoot that Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian shot for Elle magazine's September issue but we're finding ourselves filled with a little bit of lust...hotel lust that is.
The shoot was done in the Bahamas at The Cove at Atlantis, the luxury property on the mega-resort. (Remember when Biebs was there for a concert a few months ago?) And judging from a few of the shots, it looks like Kim and Justin shot around one of the beach cabanas which are part of Cain at the Cove.
