I Feel Like I Am Already Sleeping In An Igloo

I came across this really cool website the other day which is essentially a list of unusual hotels from around the world.  Given the frigidity of the outside temperatures here in NW Ohio lately, I could hardly bear to check out the ice and igloo resorts on the site.  But I especially liked the Dog Bark Park Inn in Idaho which is a hotel shaped like a large Beagle.   The Crane Hotel in the Netherlands looked really cool – your room is off the ground and contained in a huge working crane!  How about the Canopy Tower Ecolodge and Nature Observatory near Panama City?  You sleep in a converted radar dome in the middle of a rain forest with views of the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal.  And then there’s the Marmara Antalya in Turkey, a revolving hotel offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.  For some reason, I’ve always been fascinated by the Mediterranean; it was always my favorite region to study as an elementary school student.  Is it fate or coincidence that my husband and kids have Greek ancestry?  I also absolutely LOVE Mediterranean food.  So even if it’s not the most interesting of the unusual hotels, I would love to stay at the revolving hotel in Turkey that overlooks the Mediterranean.  Check out the rest of the hotels for yourself, which are your favorites?  Would you like to spend the night in a treehouse or underwater?  How do you feel about paying to spend the night in prison – voluntarily?!?
