Make Like You’re Carrie or Big in London

As Sex and The City 2 opens in cinemas today and London on full ‘Carrie mania’ after the star-studded opening in Leicester Square last night, it seems an appropriate time to kick off the weekend with some New York-inspired cocktails.

For the next month, The Doyle Collection is inviting Sex and the City devotees to celebrate the release of the hotly anticipated film with a “Cosmos & Manolos” package, available at each of their boutique London hotels and including The Kensington Hotel, The Marylebone Hotel, and The Bloomsbury Hotel.

With rates starting from £290 for two people, the Cosmos & Manolos package inspires guests to embrace the fashionable city lifestyle of Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda.

Welcoming guests with a gift of cupcakes, pink Champagne, and The Carrie Diaries—the prequel novel by Candace Bushnell—guests can click around the city in their Manolos, Jimmy Choos, and Louboutins to the designer shops of Bond Street and Knightsbridge. After a day spent maxing out their credit cards, guests can refresh in the hotel bar over Cosmopolitans and canapés. In addition to overnight accommodations, the package also includes a full English breakfast in the morning. Admittedly, the first meal of the day in London, may be very different from how the famous four from Manhattan start their day, but what’s more important is having an intense gossip around the table.

The package, which is valid until June 30, is available at the three luxurious London hotels, each in exclusive districts of the capital.

The Kensington Hotel, located in fashionable South Kensington, is nearby to Knightsbridge’s designer shops as well as the wonderful open spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. The Marylebone Hotel, chic and sophisticated, is just a stone’s throw from trendy Marylebone village and the bustling shops of Oxford Street. With its imposing neo-Georgian listed building, The Bloomsbury Hotel is a beacon of calm in the heart of London, steps away from theatre-land with Covent Garden and Oxford Circus nearby.
