One transport concept wants people to travel in style—in a luxury suite.
The Hyperloop Hotel combines the comfort of a luxury hotel room with the efficiency of the pneumatic tube style transportation.
By combining transportation and accommodation, guests don’t have to purchase a plane ticket and book a hotel. Instead, for $1,200, guests can relax in their room as the modular suites ferry them to their destination without ever having to step foot outside.
Each pod would be made from a recycled shipping container, but decked out as a luxury hotel suite. It would include the usual amenities like a bed, bathroom, and a TV. The pods would also feature an office and a living room, Designboom reports.
Designed Brendan Siebrecht, the proposal was selected as the Student winner in the Radical Innovation competition. He planned for the system to connect thirteen cities across the United States including Seattle, San Fransisco, Austin, Chicago, Nashville, and New York City.
The Hyperloop Hotel would allow people to visit multiple cities in one day with travel plans arranged on a customized app.
