This suite is inspired by Elf and its kitchen is stocked with Buddy’s signature dish—spaghetti with maple syrup!

Son of a nutcracker.

Elf  is quite possibly one of the greatest Christmas films of all time. If you haven’t seen it, I actually feel a bit sorry for you, because most would consider this 2003 Christmas flick a staple of a millennial childhood. I say Christmas film, I could watch this film in the middle of July and I’d feel absolutely no shame.

It’s the perfect blend of all the things I love most about Christmas: decorations, laughter, presents, New York and eating sh*t. It also recognises tallness as a genuine day-to-day struggle for some, and at six foot four, that means a lot.

It’s the f*cking Godfather of Christmas movies, in summary.

I need to find a husband first, but when I do, and we get engaged, this is where I’m going to be holding my bachelor party. That sounded a bit desperate and sad, didn’t it? To clarify, I’d rather stay here for the night than find a husband right now.

Club Wyndham describe themselves as “the world’s largest vacation and ownership exchange company”. I don’t really know what that means exactly, but to be honest, all I really care about is that they have decided to deck out one of their New York suites to pay homage to the Christmas film, Elf. Heroes.

Here’s the tea; Club Wyndham rooms are usually only available to members, but according to Insider, bosses have decided to open this room up to the public for the Christmas season (2nd December – 20th December), charging around £309 a night. If you think that’s a tad on the pricy side, wait until you hear what’s included…

What’s inside Elf-inspired suite at Club Wyndham Midtown 45?

Well for starters, the bed looks like a giant present, the ceiling is dripping in hundreds of paper snowflakes (Buddy’s fave) and the kitchen is stocked with the four main elf food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. Yes, that means you can even make Buddy’s favourite meal during your stay: spaghetti with maple syrup.

On top of all that, the suite is stocked with a life-size toy soldier, a giant candy cane, a massive Christmas tree and a sackful of presents, according to Insider. All in all, it’s safe to assume that Buddy would approve.

Buddy the Elf

Even the bloody front door is decked out Buddy-style; it’s painted green to look like Buddy’s iconic elf outfit. And written at the very top of the door is the opening line of the movie:

“Oh, hello. You must be here about the story.”

Noah Brodsky, chief brand officer for Wyndham Destinations says:

“Every detail of this ‘Elf’-inspired suite was designed to put families in awe from the moment they walk in.”

The room also comes with complimentary admission for four people to the Empire State Building and Rockerfellar, two of Manhattan’s biggest tourist attractions – and two of Buddy’s personal faves.

Right, I need to go and find myself a husband now so I can crack on planning this bachelor party.
