Yes, it's almost here -- Valentine's Day. And it's not necessarily about chocolates, Champagne and rose petal turn-downs, though plenty of hotels are offering those standard heart pleasers. What about a little Snuggie nookie? Or Twister passion? Fortunately, some hotels have thought about catering to those freaky Valentines.
San Francisco: Yvonne Lembi-Detert prides herself on never repeating a Valentine's Day package, or any package for that matter, at the urban hotel chain Personality Hotels that she heads. It was a Christmas gift to her daughter that made the chief executive seize on a shred of pop culture that would become the key to her 2011 hotel love package: a Snuggie.
"God, how ugly those things are," she said in a recent phone interview. But when she stumbled on the "Snuggie Sutra" book (not, I must point out, an official Snuggie tome), she knew she had the makings of an offbeat romantic offer.
The Snuggie Love package at Hotel Union Square, Hotel Diva and Kensington Park comes with a monkey-patterned double Snuggie, the book (which promises "erotic fun in your blanket with sleeves!"), four SKYY-flavored vodka mini-bottles and a late check-out time of 2 p.m. Oh and did I mention a room? That too.
