Lord of the Rings-Inspired Hotel


Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota is a place perfect for any fan of Middle Earth. Nicknamed the Hobbit treehouse, this elevated rental property is owned by Gordon Mack, a man who was inspired by the beloved Lord of the Rings films. Perched 16 feet above the ground, the structure has rounded doors and windows, with an interior space that’ll make Tolkien devotees swoon, by including details like: Elvish-language signs; a mask worn by Sauron; and a gauntlet with the gold ring. There are even Hobbit-feet slippers that are specially tailored for all age groups.

To stay in this whimsical locale, you must book the country house that it’s attached to. It’s called the Chateau De Soleil, and the four-bedroom building can accommodate up to 16 people at a time. This makes it ideal for a large family, and the treehouse complements the getaway as a fun and special place for kids to stay.

The hotel is located one hour outside of Beijing, on the shores of Yanqi Lake as the name suggests, the architecture references the shape of the sun emerging above the horizon, while in profile, the structure is shaped like a scallop – a form that represents fortune in chinese culture. The design rises to a height of 97 meters, with the top of the building reflecting the sky’s ever-changing colors. The middle portion of the façade mirrors the surrounding mountain range, while the base of the hotel reflects the water’s surface. Opening in november 2014, construction took 24 months to complete, and despite the design’s all-glass exterior, the building should be able to withstand a level 8 earthquake.

Starwood Hotels Keyless Check-In


Starwood-Keyless-Key-600x393

The new feature, called a keyless key, would enable its Starwood Preferred Guest members to go straight to their rooms and open the door via their smartphone, rather than having to go through the process of checking in. It will be trialed at the Aloft Harlem New York and Aloft Silicon Valley California hotels and builds on Starwood’s existing Smart Check In service. With the Keyless Key all that a guest will need is an Android smartphone running version 4.3 or newer or an iPhone 4S or newer. The locking mechanism works via Bluetooth so as long as the app is running, the door will automatically unlock or lock. If the trial is successful, Starwood plans to roll the feature out to all of its W and Aloft hotels, globally by the end of 2015.
