Star Trek-Themed Hotel Room In Brazil? We’ll See You There
There are many ways for people embedded in geek culture to feel comfortable sleeping at night. Some people like to doze off while Doctor Who streams in the background. Some (teenage) people like to fill their walls with glow-in-the-dark posters and stars. Some folks choose to wear a bandanna around their eyes like a Ninja Turtle while sleeping in a bed shaped like Optimus Prime on top of Johnny Mnemonic bedsheets. But enough about me.
Would you be willing to drop $670 dollars to sleep in a hotel room meant to make you feel as if you’re a part of Star Trek? If that sounds like a wise financial decision to you, then get your A.S.S. Enterprise over to Brooklin, a neighborhood of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where the Sheraton Hotel is currently hosting an exclusive suite designed to make fans of Star Trek feel right at home away from home. And make it quick. The Paramount Pictures-requested suite, designed by architect Pedro Luis Scalise, is only around for a month or so, depending on the level of demand.
It isn’t exactly a spacious room like you might imagine, but that just means that every inch of it is decked out. Over 7,000 crystals were glued to the metallized-wallpaper-covered walls in different representations of star systems. LED lights are scattered behind everything in the room, and can be changed by remote control. To quote the translated article, “In a twist, they can be blue, yellow, orange, green, red, purple, or intermediate shades creating a climate psychedelic.” Far out and prosper, man. The room even smells like a mixture of Italian bergamot, Egyptian geranium, anise, and other scents. Check out a few shots of the room below.
Note that this is all priced for one person. It goes up a mere $45 for another person, which makes me suspect they’re aiming for loners. The price tag comes with tickets to J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness, breakfast, and access to special areas of the hotel. You can also purchase a pair of boots for $1,500 or an Enterprise ring studded in sapphire and diamonds. That’ll set you back a bit more money though. Check them out below, and let us know how your stay goes if you make it out there.
