HOME AND AWAY

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel & Indulgence -

IT is rare for a ho­tel to in­clude spi­ders and cob­webs on its in­ven­tory of at­trac­tions. But if you check into suite 1702 at Sof­i­tel Syd­ney Went­worth, be pre­pared for a spooky sleep­over. The gue­stroom has been themed to tie in with The Ad­dams Fam­ily mu­si­cal at the Capi­tol The­atre and the Sof­i­tel de­sign­ers have had fun with skulls and creepy-crawlies, blood-red cush­ions and black bed-linen, models of hands that mimic the dis­em­bod­ied Thing from the pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion se­ries and a ghostly out­line of Mor­ti­cia that looms from a mir­ror. Be care­ful not to sit in the elec­tric chair or brush against a stuffed bird. From $419.60 a per­son a night (valid to April 30) with tick­ets to the mu­si­cal (be sure to have a Pina Ghoulada at in­ter­val), sou­venir pro­gram, cof­fee-ta­ble book about The Ad­dams Fam­ily and its cre­ator, Charles Ad­dams, buf­fet break­fast, and Club Sof­i­tel ac­cess and priv­i­leges. Also in­cluded is an Ad­dams Fam­ily High Tea for two in the ho­tel’s chic Soiree bar (which can be booked, with­out ac­com­mo­da­tion, for $178.35 a per­son with show ticket) — think Mor­ti­cia mar­ti­nis with float­ing blueberry-stuffed ly­chees that look like eye­balls, sy­ringes filled with blood-like coulis to squirt on dark-dark scones, and confections shaped like sev­ered fin­gers.
