Is this upper class or... what?
Previous | Next by ben 30 October, 2012 - 4:41 AM

So for my job I used to have to travel, I believe most of you know this... through most of 2008 I was "shipping up to Boston" (hey hey hey) to work on a project. I was staying, then, at the Seaport hotel, which is part of the "Preferred Hotels" group. Since I was such a frequent guest, they started emailing me about other, nice deals they come out with from time to time... such as a week in a castle outside of Dublin, to play golf, or 3 nights in Acapulco with complimentary spa treatment... or this one I just got which just made me wonder "who does this??"... like... who actually decides to to the following, and why am i not friends with them?

"Make an occasion of your holiday shopping when you combine it with a stay at Chancery Court Hotel, London. Located within walking distance of the boutique shops of Covent Garden and the lure of the West End, the hotel is perfectly located to take the stress out of a day at the shops.
A bottle of Veuve Cliquot Champagne will be delivered to your room so that you can toast your purchases. And if you still have the stamina for the shops, a full breakfast in Pearl restaurant will be the perfect way to start your day the next morning.
The Festive Shopping Break includes:

  • One night stay in a brand new Deluxe room
  • Breakfast for two, served in Pearl Restaurant
  • Complimentary bottle of Veuve Cliquot Champagne upon arrival
Rates from £260 / US$415 per night (inclusive of VAT)"

People frequently day trip to NYC to do this

"day trip to NYC" is in a slightly different economic category from "flying to London for a couple of days" though, i'd say...
