Since its release in 2003, the Will Ferrell comedy “Elf” has become a perennial holiday favorite for many, telling the tale of Buddy the Elf and his visit to New York City in search of his father. But now, people have the chance to live the “Elf” lifestyle during their stays at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Mich., CNN reports.
The hotel is offering an “Elf”-decorated suite for the holiday season. According to its spokesperson, Sarah Osbourn, people needed a way to celebrate safely after the rigors of 2020. “We thought it would be a really cool idea, especially with people not feeling safe this year, to offer a holiday experience in a suite for them, so they can still feel safe, still get into the holiday spirit and have something to do,” she told CNN.
The hotel offers an immersive experience to guests, which includes food inspired by the four main food groups of Buddy himself: candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup. When guests arrive, CNN reports, they will receive maple toasty tarts, chocolate-covered marshmallow snowballs and elf munch, which is a Chex mix with chocolate, marshmallows and candy canes.
The suite also features references to the movie itself, including a sign above the bed that reads “Santa I know him,” paper snowflakes and a Buddy-themed tree. In addition, Royal Park Hotel has formed a partnership with Maker’s Mark, and the room features a tree decorated with Maker’s Mark paraphernalia.
