The hotel room that comes to you–Anywhere

Ok, so….

Like any normal person, if you were planning a trip, you’d choose a location, book a place to stay (AirBnb, hotel room, hostel, B&B-whatever), and when you arrived, you’d move you and your belongings into that space for the allotted time.

Well, Scandic Hotels is taking that model and turning it on its head.

Literally.

Recently they announced what they are calling Scandic To Go. A mobile hotel room that comes to you. Mind you, you probably can’t book one of these last minute, like you could, say on Hotwire,  but the idea is kind of fascinating.

For around $400 per night (2500 SEK) you can have one of two mobile hotel rooms delivered to “any location in the Nordic region.” The room comes complete with hair dryer, Free WiFi, television, safe and a “ceiling, a floor and bedside lighting,” according to the press release. Oh and yes–it does have a bathroom.

My question is–really? Anywhere? Fjord? Glacier? Top of a mountain? How about a reindeer preserve? Seriously? That would be awesome.

That and the Senior Producer in me wonders about all those logistics…what’s it powered by? How does it get there? Truck? Train? Ferry? What about room service? And cleaning? (And for those of you following along–I did drop an email to the company to see about getting more answers to these questions. I’ll update if I hear back.)

HT to Urban Daddy for digging this one up.

The hotel that comes to you--anywhere.
