NYC Hotels Offering Mama Something Different on Mother’s Day

This Sunday, May 10, is Mother’s Day, and while we don’t trumpet every holiday-inflected hotel deal, three caught our eye. It’s not all hearts and flowers.


Mommie Dearest Inspired by the wire-coat-hanger cult classic, Drag Mamas with Super-Joan hair are on hand all day Sunday at W New York Downtown, performing motherly duties. Mama will bring you a drink in the Living Room bar (Mama’s Martini Madness — vodka, orange and pineapple juice, Chambord topped with some bubbly — comes with a kiss from Mama). Or tuck you in. Or deliver breakfast to your room. Reserve in advance (Mama apparently lacks spontaneity or, more likely, needs to keep to a schedule). She’ll also save you money: book a room for May 9, and get 40 percent off an additional night.



Mama Rocks Randolph’s Bar and Lounge at the Warwick screens vintage movies with a New York connection on Sunday nights through May 17. To keep things in focus, food and drink imitate the art — or whatever is on screen. Up this Sunday: A Hard Day’s Night toasting the Beatles, regulars at the Warwick who gave their first on-air interview in the Warwick Room. Accompanying English pub favorites like a Ploughman’s Lunch and Fish ’n Chips are British Bulldog Beer and, on a more elegant note, Side Cars.


Mother and Child Having a child is a one-way ticket to motherhood, so for mothers willing to share the glory, consider the Princess Package at the Trump International Hotel & Tower overlooking Central Park. Inspired by the birth of Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Britain’s newest royal, the package offers a $100 gift certificate at F.A.O. Schwartz, a rhinestone-studded tiara, coloring book and crayons, in-room milk and cookies from Jean-Georges, four tickets to a choice of the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park Zoo and the Children’s Museum — and a park-view suite to guarantee breathing room for Mom. Available through September 7.

    I have a love/hate thing going with Mother’s Day, I mean I love my Mom of course, but I can’t stand the materialism about it, it’s almost become like Valentine’s Day. These places at least seem to be having fun with it instead of piling on the cheesiness, and for that I am grateful.
