Concierge service is rewarding, but common; let’s face it, Best Western has concierges. Butler service, on the other hand — the round-the-clock ask-and-it’s-done white-glove kind, that’s still something special. The Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat & Spa in Los Cabos, Baja California has just added butlers to its list of amenities, and they’re free… well, whenever you book an ocean view suite.
Your attendant clocks in the moment you arrive and tends to the minutiae of any resort stay like dinner reservations, spa appointment, and dry cleaning. Yet the role of steward entails more than that: he will unpack your luggage, run your bubble bath, coordinate in-suite dining, plan an entire day trip and make sure your bed is turned down and your shoes are shined when you return. If there are enough of you for a cocktail party, he can arrange that as well. And anything else in between, so we’re told.
Although Pueblo Bonito says “no request is too large or too small,” there is one thing you can’t ask your butler to do: take care of your children — the Los Cabos property has been designed exclusively for adults. With your own butler, though, it will give you chance to be kids. Arthur would be proud…

Circa 55 - Beverly Hilton
To say the parties surrounding last night’s Golden Globes were “back and better than ever” after last year’s writer’s strike would be a bit of an overstatement, but the parties were, in fact, back — recession be damned — and they proved to be exciting and noteworthy despite the potential for Drew Barrymore’s questionable hairstyle decisions to overshadow all the festive fun.
The Associated Press reports that post-ceremony shindigs at the Beverly Hilton were still going down despite the weirdness surrounding the one-year hiatus and the state of the economy, but this year the parties were “fewer than before and not quite so extravagant.”
The AP says:
Unlike previous years, The Weinstein Co., E! and Paramount Pictures did not host after-parties at the hotel. Showtime held an offsite party at the nearby Peninsula Hotel, and Fox Searchlight hosted a party at the restaurant Craft.
NBC Universal’s annual party on the Hilton’s rooftop was a mostly industry affair, with guests dancing to a DJ spinning tunes by Prince and Britney Spears. Vases of white roses and lilies, and silver containers full of white feathers, decorated the area. Massive black chandeliers hung from the ceiling.
The reporter who was covering the parties busted into the “intimate” party for AMC’s Mad Men and interviewed a whiskey-loving Jon Hamm, who “seemed a little unsteady on his feet.” At that minimally-decorated bash, guests ate mashed potatoes out of martini glasses, grooved to retro music and kept the booze flowing freely.
The hotel’s Circa 55 restaurant was, apparently, the most happenin’ of all hotspots: the HBO party was hosted there (as is tradition). Eva Mendes, Drew Barrymore, Lauren Hutton, Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney and Anna Paquin made appearances at the bash, and we feel it is important to note that the poor Mercury-poisoned Jeremy Piven was snacking on chocolates and wasn’t washing them down with booze. He passed on champagne and wine to drink water instead. Via: Jenna – Hotel Chatter
