You might have heard about babymoon hotel packages and there’s even a few hotels which offer packages to help couples get pregnant. But a hotel package to give birth?
The Marmara Manhattan Hotel in New York is offering an extended stay package for pregnant aliens who want their babies to pop out all wrapped up in the star-spangled banner.
The 14th Amendment makes all children born on American soil bonafide American citizens, and it’s no big secret either.
But a hotel offering a birth package that includes a 2-month vacation in New York is probably something novel.
The 60-day Birth Package begins with an airport pickup and transfer from JFK Airport. Also includes special gift sets for the mother and the newborn, along with a crib and consultation and help services after birth.
Monthly rates for the package range from $5,100 for a studio suite to $15,000 for a 3-bedroom suite. Does not include medical charges. The total cost of a 2-month stay at the hotel plus the medical bills is likely to be in excess of $45,000.
The Marmara Manhattan is part of a Turkish hotel chain, so the Birth Package is aimed at rich Turkish families who might want their children to become Americans.
On the hotel’s website, it says “The Marmara Manhattan, the number one choice of Turkish families visiting New York, for either leisure or long stays, before and after giving birth, has prepared an exclusive package for new mothers that wish to give birth in the USA in the year 2010. This 60 day long stay package provides mothers with all the comfort and assistance they need before and after giving birth.”
