Some things are just not funny and shouldn’t be joked about, like a hotel room inspired by Haagen-Dazs flavors.
Thank you, San Francisco‘s Hotel Triton, for turning an otherwise boring July into something decadent. Since July is National Ice Cream Month, the Kimpton boutique hotel in Union Square has created the Haagen-Dazs® Sweet Suite – a custom-designed room that offers hotel guests a unique escape, featuring a custom designed ice cream cabinet filled with both classic Haagen-Dazs flavors and new releases such as the new Haagen-Dazs Five flavors. Ummm, OK!
The design of the room is equally as delicious. Vanilla and caramel colors serve as the base coats for a room decorated with “flavored” candles in chocolate, vanilla and dulce de leche. The room, designed by Stephanie Filbrandt of Marsh & Clark Design, features a headboard shaped like the Haagen-Dazs cartouche, and a waffle-textured bed throw and bath robe to keep guests cozy.
Appropriately called the “Sweet Spot,” the ice cream cabinet is stocked with bowls, scoops and spoons and, best of all, guests can enjoy as many complimentary cartons as they desire. FREE ICE CREAM!
The best part? You can indulge without feeling guilty. A portion of each “Sweet Suite” guest’s tab is donated to the Haagen-Dazs brand’s charity of choice, Delancey Street Foundation. Plus, if you choose to purchase one of the custom Haagen-Dazs bathrobes or ice cream scented candles, all proceeds will also go to the benefiting charity.
A quick rate check on the site generated prices starting at $379/night for this sweet escape. I think that more than makes up for the calories consumed from the bottomless cartons of ice cream one might consume in the suite.
