Booking.com has partnered with Warner Bros Pictures to offer stays in pop-up Willy Wonka-themed hotel suites in New York and LA. Jenny Southan reports
Booking.com is celebrating the release of Warner Bros Pictures’ Wonka movie by offering guests with a sweet tooth the chance to book a stay in one of two “Wonka’s Sweet Suites” in New York and Los Angeles.
Available to book on a first-come, first-served basis, the Wonka suites are found at the Park Lane New York (in the hotels’s Conservatory suite) and the Viceroy Santa Monica (in the Palmetto King suite) in Los Angeles.
Inspired by the Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wonka’s Sweet Suites offer “all-you-can-eat” candy displays, limited-edition Wonka Magic Hat Gummies and life-sized chocolate confections. Other features in the suites include cotton candy clouds, a replica of the tree in Wonka’s candy shop, a “chocolate bar” bed topped with marshmallow-style white quilt, giant rainbow lollipops, vintage travel poster wallpaper and cushion-sized macaron.
In addition to the overnight stays, the experience will come with tickets to see Wonka in the cinema.
Wonka’s Sweet Suites will become bookable for two pairs of guests on December 13 at midday ET, for each stay taking place December 15-16, priced at only US$12.15. Each experience will come with overnight stays, itineraries and airport transfers through Booking.com.
Lucky bookers who are members of Booking.com’s loyalty program, Genius, can get even more out of their Wonka-inspired experience. When booked by a Genius Level 2 or Genius Level 3 member, Wonka’s Sweet Suites experience will be upgraded to include a free chocolate-infused breakfast.
