Fairmont Hotel Vancouver : Material Girl
Well, I didn't know that Madonna was going to be in Vancouver on October 30. Is she coming to Seattle? Hold on, I'll check. Nope, Canada scores, the state of Washington loses. Madonna's Sticky & Sweet Tour is bypassing the Emerald City, and if you don't have tickets for the BC Place concert, you're SOL. It's sold out.
But you can still be a Material Girl (or Guy). The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has a special package in honor of the pop star's visit called the Material Girl Madonna Package. You'll start the evening with Madonna's favorite Pomegranate Martini (for two) in 900 West Lounge (how do they know that?), enjoy accommodations in one of the hotel's elegant Fairmont Rooms, and complimentary parking.
Don't have tickets? You can still book the package, you don't have to show your tickets. Buy her CD at Virgin Records at Burrard and Robson just down the street. The package is valid October 20-November 2; rates start at $249 CDN per night, plus taxes.
