Still don't have a gift idea for dear old dad? Travel's the gift that keeps on giving: Instead of a tie that lies crumpled in a ball, give him something that gives him a break from the every day and memories for years to come.
If your dad's the type who traded in his Mustang for a station wagon to lug you and your soccer team around town, the Thompson Beverly Hills has the perfect package: The "Dad's Getaway" deal gives pops overnight accommodations, a luxury rental car and two gin martinis (one for him and one for you, or both for him).
Package prices start at $449 per night and go all the way up to $2,399 per night, depending on the room and car selected.
Dad's 'Audi' Getaway: $449/night • One night accommodation in a King Premium Room • Audi A5 Convertible Rental • Two complimentary gin martinis
Dad's 'Mercedes' Getaway: $649/night • One night accommodation in a Wilshire Suite • Mercedes S550 Rental • Two complimentary gin martinis
Dad's 'Porsche' Getaway: $999/night • One night accommodation in a Thompson Suite • Porsche Panamera PS Rental • Two complimentary gin martinis
Dad's 'Bentley' Getaway: $2,399/night • One night accommodation in a Penthouse Suite • Bentley Continental GTC Rental • Two complimentary gin martinis
The fine print: The package price excludes car insurance, and the car must be picked up at Los Angeles Airport (LAX). Fine, if dad happens to be flying into town, but not very convenient if he lives within driving distance. The package must be booked by June 30.
