Don't want to brave the competitive holiday shopping mayhem this season? The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel, is offering guests the "Santa's Shopper" package, saving you the hassle of trying to get your hands on the sold-out Let's Rock Elmo and the Leapfrog LeapPad for your loved ones. It's a win-win: a mini-vacation for parents, and a happy Christmas for children.
The "Santa's Shopper" package, starting at $780, includes accommodations at the 81-year-old hotel for one night, either the Let's Rock Elmo or Leapfrog LeapPad, two cocktails in Bemelmans Bar, breakfast for two in the Carlyle Restaurant, and complimentary gift wrapping. The package must be booked one week in advance, and it is offered through December 23 (based on availability).
