A 5-star hotel on wheels
Spain's 'Hotel Movil' can convert from a truck to a two-story, 11-bedroom boutique hotel.
Even some of the most jaded Cravers were admittedly impressed by the recently citedand its over-the-top appointments. But less than a week later, it's already been topped by an even more outrageous concept.
The Spanish-made "Hotel Movil" isn't just a mobile home: It's a mobile hotel. Or motel, as the case may be. In fact, OhGizmo says it can convert to pretty much anything you want--"a mobile hospital, a portable film studio and even a school"--because it must be built to custom specs anyway. Yet its primary use is envisioned as a two-story, 11-bedroom "traveling" hotel that even has an outdoor terrace and is equipped with private bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi networks and luxurious amenities that can qualify for a 5-star rating.
Talk about a "boutique" hotel. The $500,000 base price may be a bit off-putting, but a Hotel Movil can be rented for about $8,000 for a weekend. Remember, it's not too soon to start thinking about the next Super Bowl party.
