When you book a hotel room, getting a cheeky upgrade or free late check-out is usually enough to make your day. It’s always nice when a hotel values you. We know a bloke who asked his hotel for two framed photos of Sandra Bullock and six blue M&Ms… and got them.
One hotel in Los Angeles is going about 5000 steps further, though. Book the special ‘Live Aston Martin’ suite package at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and you’ll get not just a very lovely hotel room(s), but some time driving an Aston Martin through LA.
If you’re wealthy and you know it clap your hands! Guests who order the package, which is being offered until the end of March, will get a choice of either a DB11 or a Vanquish S to biff around in for a while.
To remember the experience by, they can also visit an Aston Martin pop-up store just off the hotel lobby, which sells everything from keyrings and baseball caps to numbingly expensive leather luggage and accessories.
Well, if nothing else, a quick spin in an Aston Martin sure as hell beats flicking through hotel TV packages or (shudder) resorting to golf.
