’50 Shades’ Hotel Offers Mr Grey Package

50 Shades Of GreyNo one could say the Heathman Hotel in Portland is run by people who are blind to opportunity.

Not only has the runaway success of Fifty Shades of Grey, the graphically sexual novel that has sold more than a million copies, led to a boom in sex toys and erotic literature.

The hotel, featured in the popular erotic novel “50 Shades of Grey,” is now offering special packages for fans of the book. The so-called “mommy porn trilogy” is based primarily in Seattle, but certain scenes are set at the Heathman in Portland.

The Heathman Hotel isn’t selling the more controversial aspects of the book — there’s no “red room of pain,” for example, but it is offering helicopter rides and wine.

Heathman Hotel’s general manager, Chris Erickson, said fans are taking photos in the lobby. The hotel now also has packages based on scenes in the book.

“One is our Charlie Tango package,” Erickson said. ”If you’ve read the book, it’s the Charlie Tango helicopter is what Christian names his helicopter, and it’s $2,700 for a flight and a dinner for six right here at the hotel.”

There’s also a $40 package that includes a bottle of pouille fume wine, a vintage shared by the main characters in the first novel, and a keepsake grey tie.

Let’s see if Escala, the Seattle-based luxury condo building where our “50 Shades” hero lives, can compete with that.
