BRUNCHING IN BEVERLY HILLS: A good Christmas hotel package often comes with some sort of dining situation attached. No one needs to walk into a guest room and find a seafood tower or three-tier cake, but something a bit posh and a bit out of the ordinary is more than welcome at this time of year. Enter the posh and more than a bit out of the ordinary SLS Hotel, which has a Christmas package on over the Christmas weekend. Love those words, "Christmas weekend."
THE DEAL: The available dates are Friday, Dec. 24 through Sunday, Dec. 26. Stay a night at the La Cienega-located hotel and get brunch for two at Tres; nights start at $299. The hotel points out that its "magnificent decor" lends a lot to the seasonal spirit, and that we cannot deny. Don't you just want to wear a full-lapeled deep pink velvet suit when lounging at the SLS bar? That can't just be us. Get your code and more details here.
