These days, amenities can make the difference between booking one hotel and kicking another to the curb. So, properties are upping their A-game. The latest trend? Wooing potential guests with two sure-fire hits: booze and technology. These hotels have got it right with these tasty and techy treats.
The Opus Vancouver goes a step beyond just offering in-room iPads. Guests are actually allowed to take those iPads anywhere off property, since the devices are equipped with GPS. Plus, customers will save money by avoiding international data charges if they forward their calls to the iPad and check emails there instead of on their smartphones. Genius!

We knew it was only a matter of time before we saw a hotel package capitalizing on the New York Times' #1 bestselling “Fifty Shades of Grey” novel. And lo’, a special just appeared in our inbox!
San Francisco’s female-owned Personality Hotels company whipped up (cough) a “Fifty Shades of Women” package designed to encourage ladies to take control of their lover.
First, you'll choose deluxe accommodations at their Hotel Diva, Hotel Union Square, or Kensington Park properties. Then, you’ll get an intimacy kit from Minna Life filled with a black satin scarf, an Ola vibrator, lube, limited edition designer condoms by Art of Lust(limited edition condoms? say whaaaat?),and, of course, the obligatory pompom feather (OK, does anyone really like feathers? Please, weigh in on this, y'all).
Personality Hotels is the master of creating crazy packages—after all, it was the brand that gave us snuggie sutra. But this time it's setting its sights on wooing a younger crowd, a much younger crowd.
The hotel chain is offering Kids with Personality, a new year-round program that gives children some complimentary check-in swag. For the summer, it will offer regal-themed goodies in honor of Prince William and Princess Kate, two people kiddies probably don't know.

The average gas price in the United States has spiked to $4, which is just 11 cents short of the record high, CNN reported, and a huge crimp in your travel budget. If the pump prices have given you sticker shock and are making you rethinking your summer travel plans (any good destinations within biking distance?), there are a number of hotels that want to sway your opinion. They are offering gas packages to get you on the road again.
Check out three hotels that offer gas relief (you know, the kind for your car).
To celebrate the impending royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the San Francisco hotel will give you British favors like Union Jack condoms. We're guessing these aren't the rubbers of choice for British royalty, but they sure sound, um, festive.

Last week we gave you the lowdown on Valentine's Day deals that we'd actually book. This week, it's time to show you the strange, outrageous and plain cray-cray packages that are out there.
If you really want to impress her with your sexual prowess this Valentine's Day, you have to break out the Snuggie Sutra. Yep, stay at one of the San Francisco-based Personality Hotels and you'll receive a manual on getting it on in a fleece blanket with sleeves.
If you're paying attention to the World Series, you probably know that the San Francisco Giants are kicking some butt against the Texas Rangers right now, leading the series two-zip. 'Course, if you're a Rangers fan you will want this series to go on a little longer. And even if you're a Giants fan, you may get excited about Game 6 thanks to this new offer from Personality Hotels.
The San Francisco hotel company (minus three) is offering one lucky winner two tickets to Game 6 on Wednesday, Nov. 3rd at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The winner will also get a a VIP stay at a Personality Hotel of their choice in Union Square (Hotel Diva, Hotel Union Square, Kensington Park) along with a bottle of sparkling wine (no champagne showers in the room allowed!)

The new-look Hotel Vertigo.
It’s been a few months since San Francisco's Personality Hotels got a brand new identity. So while we were up in the Bay Area last week, we decided to swing by Hotel Vertigo and Hotel Frank to see how they were faring under the Oregon-based Provenance Hotels boutique chain. (Which is also now managing the Hotel Metropolis.)
Our most pressing question, of course, was had the hotels retained any of their personality? Har har har.
When we checked in with Personality in late May, hotelier Yvonne Lembi-Detert told us that there was no new manager/operator for The Hotel Metropolis, Hotel Vertigo and Hotel Frank. But a month later, we have learned that Provenance Hotels, an Oregon-based company with four hotels in the Northwest and one in Nashville, have assumed management of the former Personality Hotels.
We love Provenance Hotels because they understand that a boutique hotel stay can be affordable and fun--a philosophy that's very similar to Personality Hotels. Remember the contest we did with Provenance's Hotel Preston? We also love Provenance for their Foursquare savvy.
All in all, this is good news for the orphaned Personality Hotels. We just hope that Provenance keeps the free WiFi (they said they would.)

The Hotel Frank, no longer A Personality Hotel.
The Hotel Metropolis, Hotel Vertigo and our fave, Hotel Frank were all in danger of foreclosure and would likely be auctioned off. At the last-minute, Personality hotelier, Yvonne Lembi-Detert filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to stall the auction. But her valiant efforts failed as the three hotels were sold-off early last week to the Centerline Capital Group, which holds the hotels' debt.
But these hotels may still have some Personality left.
For those of you who travel diva-style like the always dolled-up Lady Gaga, you probably expect glam service at your hotel that's worthy of a princess like you. Personality Hotels wants to cater to you with its JETset for the METset package.
Okay, so you won't get Gaga's famous Alexander McQueen 10-inch "Armadillo" stilettos as part of the deal. But you'll get your choice of San Francisco hotels: the Hotel Diva, Hotel Union Square or Kensington Park Hotel.
