The fifth star of 'Sex': New York City

•The historic Algonquin Hotel offers a "Girls and the City" promotion with two nights' lodging, tickets for On Location's Sex and the City tour, plus two seats at the Broadway show Legally Blonde and an appointment with a personal shopper. The package can be customized. Rates typically start at $699 a person, plus tax. Information: 866-406-5341;

•A $200 gift card at the Henri Bendel department store — a Carrie Bradshaw fave — is included in the Mandarin Oriental, New York's "Sex and the City Celebration Package." Guests also get a chauffeured tour of Sex and the City hotspots. At Henri Bendel, a gift from jet-set lingerie designer Cosabella awaits (it premiered a "Sex and the City" collection). Later, gals can dish and people-watch at the luxurious Mandarin over cocktails such as the Carrie Cosmo, Mr. Big Apple Martini, Miranda's Manhattan and the Samantha Flirtini. The one-night package also includes a trivia game that tests fans on TV-series minutia. Rates start at a soaring $2,000 for two in a Hudson River-view room. Tax is extra. Information: 866-801-8880 or 212-805-8800.

•More within reach of working-girl wallets is the "Sex and the City" package from Affinia Hotels' four Manhattan outposts, including accommodations, a split of Champagne, cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery and the On Location tour. Rates start at $389 for two, plus tax, in a studio suite. Information: 866-233-4642;

•You don't have to be super-rich to snare the "Sex and the City" weekend package from The Westin New York at Times Square. Starting at $434 per room a night, plus tax, it offers fans two tickets to the movie, Cosmos and a concierge-provided list of Sex hot spots. Information: 888-627-7149;

Fans who crave the first peek at the film can jet to London, where — angering some New Yorkers — it's due to premiere next week, two weeks before the U.S. opening (due to scheduling issues, New Line Cinema has said).

•The Berkeley in Knightsbridge is stirring up a weekend "Sex & The City" package, with the omnipresent Cosmos, plus in-room manicures, viewing of DVDs of the TV series, plus cookies shaped like Jimmy Choo spike-heel boots and other fashionista accessories. Rates start at 415 pounds (about $810) for two, including tax. Information: 011-44-207-950-5490 ;
