The Growing Trend of Pod Hotels
But what about those travelers who want to save money in the center of town and are willing to sacrifice a bit of space in order to do so?
According to the Los Angeles Times, there is a growing trend of "diminutive digs" that take advantage of the need for clean, functional accommodations that sacrifice space for affordability. London, for example, is blessed with three EasyHotel locations ($51 per night) as well as the slightly more expensive, Base2Stay ($165).
I've spent my share of time in small hotel rooms, but I'm sure a night in a "pod" is an entirely different experience. I'd either acclimate very quickly, or go stark raving mad from cabin fever and ax-murder someone.
Either way, I'm willing to give it a try.
