DENVER (July 31, 2013)—The Curtis Hotel in Denver 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 with the help of a scissor lift on top of the van on which it sits.
At $50,000, the stay will be pricey, there’s a weight limit, and smoking isn’t 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 hotel is giving the curious a chance to stay in the aluminum and inflated vinyl creation, called "the hotel rehearsal."
