Denver hotel offers pop-up inflatable room
A Denver hotel is offering a package that includes a one-night stay in a pop-up inflatable, room that can be lifted 22 feet in the air, thanks to a scissor lift on top of the van on which it sits.
The cost: $50,000. There is a weight limit. No smoking is allowed.
Architectural artist Alex Schweder created the 5-foot-by-7-foot room atop a van for the Biennial of the Americas arts, culture and idea festival in Denver. It has a chemical toilet, shower, sink, inflatable bed and living room. Schweder spent two nights in it, at two downtown Denver parking lots.
Now the Curtis hotel is giving the curious a chance to stay in the aluminum and inflated vinyl creation, called "the hotel rehearsal."
