This item appears to be several years old, but what a great (I'm assuming tongue-in-cheek) collection of strange hotel ideas. The way he writes it, it sounds like they're real--I'm dying to know if any of these strange hotel ideas actually have become realities. I know the Ice Hotel has now spread from Sweden to Canada and Alaska (and probably other places as well).
A quote from this site: "My God, if people will pay to get frostbite, what else can we push on 'em?"
So the writer goes on to talk about other strange hotel ideas that, according to a quick Google search, remain in the realm of fancy:
-L'Hotel Machet, the world's first Paper Mache Hotel, Paris
-The world's first hotel made entirely out of Tinker Toys, Wichita, Kan.
-Hotel-O, the world's first hotel made entirely out of Jell-O, Sydney, Australia
-'Disney's Pyramid On Ice!' outside of Cairo, Egypt
and my own personal favorite: The world's first invisible hotel in the middle of Central Park in New York City.
OK, what's the weirdest hotel idea you can come up with? And would you hold a meeting there?
