Travel Tip: Hotels Made from Planes, Trains & Ships

Share on: Share on Google+

I’m always a fan of going against the norm when traveling…and that includes where you stay. So next time, why not skip the traditional hotel?

You can even get more out of the travel experience by staying in a place that’s actually inspired by types of transportation.

Hotel Costa Verde in Costa Rica has a two-bedroom suite made from a vintage Boeing 727 from 1965.

And Jumbo Stay is a Boeing 747 that was converted into a hotel in Stockholm.

Thought the Chattanooga Choo Choo was just a Glenn Miller song? Think again. It’s also a historic hotel inside the terminal in Tennessee, where you can actually sleep in original Pullman cars.

If you’re like me and prefer to be on the water, there are plenty of options. You’ve probably heard of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, the legendary ship that’s now a hotel.

But there are also lesser-known options. Like The Covington Inn, a floating bed and breakfast on the Mississippi River in St. Paul.

And on the East Coast, there’s the Green Turtle floating on the Boston Harbor—it’s basically like renting your own yacht without all the hassle.
