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.
