The “Elf” Suite at the Royal Park Hotel
Since 2020 has been such a tough year for everyone, the Royal Park Hotel thought that it would be a cool idea for people to get some extra holiday cheer by offering this Christmas experience. The room was designed to include many movie references from the Christmas comedy “Elf” which was released in 2003. Buddy the Elf, who is the main character, is played by Will Ferrell. A large sign that reads “Santa I know him,” is hanging right over the bed in the suite. There are tons of other decors, including over 5,000 feet of paper snowflake garland that was made by hand.
Aside from helping guests escape for the holidays, the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan also donates 10% of the proceeds from the “Elf” suite to Rochester’s The Big, Bright Light Show.
The Full ‘Elf’ Experience
Guests have the chance to dive into this complete holiday experience, which includes food that was inspired by Buddy the Elf, like his four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and maple syrup.
When the guests arrive at the “Elf” suit at the Royal Park Hotel, they’ll receive chocolate-covered marshmallow snowballs, maple toasty tarts, and elf munch which consists of Chex mix with chocolate, marshmallows, and candy canes.
The Royal Park Hotel partnered up with Maker’s Mark, so aside from the many Buddy-themed decorations, there is also a Christmas tree that is decorated with Maker’s Mark paraphernalia.
