Pop-up Hotel Creates Luxury Retreat Out Of Old Shipping Container
February 4, 2013

In the past three months alone we have featured shipping containers that have been used for homes, schools, saunas, and even organic farming. Between cost and their inherent modularity, is it really any wonder that the popularity of shipping containers has risen over the course of a few years?

The pop-up hotel offers adventurous travelers anything and everything they could expect from a 20-foot recycled sea container. It’s equipped with a box-spring bed, shower, air conditioning, and even an iPod docking station.

In this way, the pop-up hotel has the ability to transport guests to some of the most impressive locations the city has to offer.
