If holidaying or staycationing puts your sweet tooth in a treat yo'self sort of mood, we've found the ultimate city getaway to sate those cravings. Flinders Street hotel DoubleTree by Hilton has transformed its two-storey Loft Room into an eye-popping, neon-hued homage to all things sweet.

Created with the help of LED neon specialists Electric Confetti, the new Sugar High suite is as much a sugar rush for your eyes as it is for your tastebuds. Expect glittery wall tiles in various shades of musk stick and red frog, giant inflatable ice creams for sweet-toothed selfies, and a festival's worth of fun neon shapes splashed throughout — candy hearts with sweet messages, hundreds and thousands, and even a supersized Bubble O'Bill.

The room is also stocked with the real deal, including jars brimming with classic lollies. Guests on the Sugar High Package will enjoy an assorted mini jar of sugary treats each, with additional jars available to purchase if you really want to dive in. There's even a huge 950-gram container of gumballs that might catch your eye.

The hotel package also includes signature DoubleTree cookies on arrival, a pair of exclusive ice cream-print socks each and a daily buffet breakfast — if you're still hungry after all the sugar, that is. If you'd like to treat your sweet tooth — and camera roll — to a stay in the Sugar High Room, you've got until October 31, when it's set to morph back to its usual self.

DoubleTree Hilton's Sugar High Package is available until October 30, with rates from $470. Book via the website using the promo code PR04MC, or mention the room when making a phone reservation.
