Capital Reservations' theme song!

If you've ever listened to the music playing in the background of our office, you'll know we listen to Triple J (Renee would be proud). In between the hundreds of phone calls this week, Adam brought to my attention the song below and after hearing it for myself, I'm now naming it our theme song!

Why "Jump in to the fog" by The Wombats? The opening line is:
"What a great achievement it was to get a hotel room this late"
Which is pretty much what we do all day every day!

How to watch the big game

With the Super Bowl just a couple of days away now, I came across this article about the ultimate hotel package if you can't make it to the game itself.

$42,650 Super Bowl Hotel Suite - AOL Travel News

Super Bowl fever can take many forms, but for those with a taste for luxury, watching the big game in a suite priced at $42,650 at the Mandarin Oriental New York might just be the ticket.

The over-the-top package includes a night in the Presidential suite, a three-course catered meal for 15 during the game and a very rare bottle of 50-year-old Scotch.

The hotel's Director of Communications Tammy Peters confirmed to AOL Travel News that as of Wednesday the Presidential suite was still available.

'We've done it [a special Super Bowl package] a few years in a row,' says Peters. 'Sometimes it sells and sometimes it doesn't.'

Whether you are rooting for the Pittsburg Steelers or the Green Bay Packers, you'll be watching on a 65-inch plasma screen television with eight surround speakers and noshing on mini Kobe beef burgers and Ahi tuna tacos.

The bulk of the cost of the room comes from the Glenfiddich 50 Year Old. The hotel has one of only five bottles available in North America.

Just how much is it worth? One recently sold at auction for $38,000.
