The CFDA Auctions Off Fancy Hotel Stays and Shopping Sprees to Benefit Japan

April 15, 2011 at 2:42 PM | by | ()

We don't have words enough to describe the awesomeness of Japan. If you've never been, you must go, but perhaps wait a bit until all of this recent tragedy of the earthquake, tsunami and radiation leaking is resolved. Until then, Japan could really use your help, and those in the fashion industry have devised a creative way of getting you to potentially lay out the big bucks all for the benefit of Japan; they're hosting a giant auction with very personal, very unique experiences on offer, including many top-notch hotel stays.

Let's see what there is on offer:

· The Ralph Lauren experience in Paris worth $30,000, currently bidding at $8,251. It includes business class flights for two on American Airlines to Paris, 2 nights in a deluxe room at Hotel Le Bristol, a dinner for two at Ralph's, a 1,000 Euro shopping experience at the Ralph Lauren store on St. Germain, and 2 tickets to visit "The Art of Automobile: Masterpieces of the Ralph Lauren Collection."

Go To The Hotel's Web

Cubicle Dreamin' is a feature in which we ask the hotel mavens to take some time out of their busy work day, surf the Internet, and tell us what hotel they wish they could beam themselves to right that very second--all on the slave driving companies dime, of course. Oh, like these people aren't surfing aimlessly anyway--at least now their purposeless clicking will be cobbled together into useful hotel stories--we hope. Have a destination hotel you are just dying to leave your cube for? Send the story our way.

In this episode, Hotel Maven Katie K visits Austria...in her mind. Enjoy.

The recent teases of springy weather have me in a Julie Andrews sort of mood. (I’ll tell you one thing: If my neighborhood had more — er, any — grassy hills, I would spend a lot less time blogging, and a lot more time running around singing about how, you know, alive it all is.) But rather than fantasizing about my frolics on faux hills, I’d rather let my mind drift straight to the source — specifically, the Hotel Schloss Fuschl in Austria.
