Sex and the City 2 Cosmo-licious Hotel Deals
On May 27, Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbes, and Samantha Jones strap on their stilettos, pour a Cosmo (or four), and hit the big screen once again, in Sex and the City 2. This time around, the four friends are vacating the City That Never Sleeps for a weeklong excursion to Abu Dhabi. So what better way to celebrate the film's opening than to do as those jetsetting fashionistas do, and take a trip yourself? I tracked down five SATC-themed packages being offered by hotels around the world, so all that's left for you to do is decide which one is best for you!
Hotel Gansevoort, NYC
You'll get the true SATC experience living it up in the city where just about everything takes place. Enjoy early check-in (2 p.m.), then lounge around poolside sipping on Cosmos for two. Get your shopping on and take advantage of special discounts at select shops, and then hit the town with two VIP passes good for a number of hip NYC clubs. When you leave, don't forget to pack your SATC book and DVD (also included)! Rates start at $545/night. Available until September 6.
Hôtel Plaza Athénée, Paris
This classic, uber-luxurious hotel (about to celebrate its 100-year anniversary) is right up Carrie's alley. Remember the final episode of SATC? Yeah, there were a number of scenes filmed here. (Not to mention, even when out of character, SJP has been known to stay here!) Check into your Prestige or Presidential Suite, where a complimentary cake will be delivered upon arrival. Then head to the hotel bar for Cosmos for two, and start the next day off with the hotel's continental breakfast. You'll also receive a red, hotel-branded umbrella. Rates start at $4,830/night.
St. James Club, London
Get "Sex and the City Chic" with this package, offered by a hotel appropriately situated near the luxe Mayfair neighborhood, where the girls would most definitely get their shopping on. You'll receive two Cosmos, a two-course meal for two at the hotel's Bar & Bistro restaurant, and full English breakfast in the morning. Rates start at $480/night. Available until June 19.
Hyatt Regency Bellevue, WA
Sitting opposite Seattle, on the east side of the Lake Washington, the "Girls Night Out—Carrie and the Gang" package two welcome Cosmos, two tickets to a SATC screening (don't book before the movie opens or you'll lose this feature!), full breakfast buffet for two at the hotel's Twisted Cork, and valet parking for one car. Oh, and since you'll be living the highlife like Carrie, you can sleep late; you'll be allowed to wait until 2 p.m. to checkout! Rates start at $209/night. Available until June 20.
Hilton Chicago/Indians Lakes Resort, Bloomingdale, IL
You don't have to be in the center of a sprawling metropolis to be treated like a city princess. The "Sex and the Suburbs 2" package offers 3 Skyy Vodka cocktails per person, a screening of the new film at 10 p.m. (transportation provided), and entrance to the reception party—chock full of goodies!—afterwards. Rates start at $198. Available May 28.
