    A Hotel’s ‘Chocolate Covered Weekend’If Rob and Robin’s gifts for chocoholics weren’t extravagant enough for you, the Exchange Hotel is offering a “Chocolate Covered Weekend” — and starting Saturday, December 16, the price drops from $1,200 to a mere thousand. What does a grand get you? According to the hotel Website, the deal includes a two-night stay in a suite (typically a winter rate of $289 per night); a three-hour tour of Christopher Norman Chocolates, Vosges Haut-Chocolat, Kee’s Chocolates, MarieBelle, and Jacques Torres; and Mexican chocolate mojitos or non-alcoholic Aztec iced chocolate in the on-site lounge. (The visit to the high-end chocolatiers is led by a guide from Zoom Chocolate Magazine.) General manager Rani Carr tells us that the package launched earlier this fall through a partnership with the Chocolate Show, but the word is just starting to spread. “It’s so new that we haven’t had anyone actually book it and confirm it,” she explains. — Lori Fradkin Calling All Chocoholics!
