Hotel Jerome’s awesome Thanksgiving deal

The Hotel Jerome is offering a fantastic deal, but its for Thanksgiving weekend only. So, if you’re sick of carving into the same dry turkey — yet again — watching the damned parade on television (or worse, in person … trust me), book a last-minute trip to Aspen, Colorado. The Hotel Jerome’s “120th Anniversary Celebration” package costs only $1,889 for two people from November 25 – 29, 2009. Why? That’s when the hotel opened: 1889. It’s also a savings of more than 50 percent.

The package includes four nights in a junior suite, two full-day lift tickets per person and two tickets to the hotel’s 120th anniversary party (where an 1889-themed costume!). And, you’ll get a full Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday night. Even though you won’t have the stress of the holiday to weigh you down, each person will also receive a 50-minute massage at the Aspen Club & Spa.

Yeah, or you could stay home and watch a couple of football games …
