the Sheraton Universal here, in conjunction with Universal Studios
Hollywood, designed the Shrek Honeymoon Suite, which is "totally
'Shrekked-out' from floor to ceiling and from bed to bath,"
according to a spokeswoman for the property.
One of the Sheraton Universal's executive suites was transformed
into the "ogre-the-top" Shrek Honeymoon Suite, complete with
separate living room and breakfast areas and a king-size bed.
The canopy bed, outfitted with green sheets, is adorned in moss
and vines, while the bathroom features green monogrammed towels,
green soap and environmentally friendly mud-bath packets.
Meanwhile, the breakfast table and living room furniture are
made of twigs -- with green cushions, of course, -- and renderings

The Shrek Honeymoon Suite is priced at $399 per night, double.
Commission is 10%.
One-day passes to Universal Studios Hollywood, where the couple
