Where To Stash Grandma

The Carlyle hotel debuts “Sophie and the City” packages

We’ll admit it’s unlikely that anyone would actually put up their parents (or in-laws) at the Carlyle. But let’s just say that you’re feeling supremely guilty for exiling them to a hotel. And let’s just also say that your daughter is obsessed with The Super Adventures of Sophie and The City. Well, then, the Carlyle’s new Sophie-inspired packages might be for you. “The Sophie Experience” (from $540 per night) includes signed copies of both Sophie books; a themed Magnolia Bakery cupcake (yummy); a boudoir pillow designed by Matouk with Sophie’s cameo logo (dreamy); and an iPad mini loaner with a virtual tour of Sophie’s favorite spots around town (you can use it during your stay). The package can be amped up to “The Super Sophie Experience,” (from $835 per night) where kids will also score Oscar de la Renta’s  special edition Sophie dress and a Lulu Frost Super Adventures of Sophie and the City cameo necklace and charm suite.
