Last year's Godiva suite.

This isn't necessarily a Valentine's Day package so we promise we're not breaking our self-imposed ban on V-Day stories, but this does involve the chocolate you should be buying your lady for the red and pink holiday.

Godiva, Jonathan Adler and The Bryant Park Hotel have teamed up to create an entirely chocolate sweet suite (ha) inside the Manhattan hotel. Literally, this is an entire suite made of things that are either painted to look like chocolate or are actually made of chocolate, and it has become a tradition for the hotel to kick off this promo around this time every year. There aren't many photos of this year's suite yet, but we can tell you that last year's was pretty stunning.

There was a big press event yesterday where actress Brooke Shields "revealed" the suite and gave the deets on the promotion surrounding it. Yes, this is part of a promo; the only way to score a night in this choco-room is to win it through Godiva's V-Day promotion. Keep your eyes peeled while you're shopping for sweets for your honey: there are little red heart symbols on boxes of chocolates worth $25 or more, and inside the box is an envelope with a game piece in it. A hundred First Prize winners will receive a year of Godiva chocolate for free (doesn't sound so bad), and the single Grand Prize winner and a guest will be flown to NYC to be the first and only guests to experience the BPH Godiva suite.

The weekend package includes a private chocolate tasting and "fine dining" for the winners, but we have a feeling they're more likely to gorge themselves while going all Hansel and Gretel on the walls and sculptures and stuff. We know what it's like to be in a room full of chocolate and, trust us, it's hard to know when to say when.
