I splurged on staying in one of their Air Streamers. I was a lone traveler so the size was fine. It might be a tight squeeze for 2 people, in my opinion. I thought the stay was unique and the view was nice. The bed was so dreamy. Bathroom is small. And if you have a problem with noise this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Grand Daddy is a luxury four-star city hotel with an effervescent, creative soul. Generous, warm and welcoming; The Grand Daddy’s passion is for people.

Each of the 7 two-sleeper trailer suites have been conceptualized and designed by local artists and makes for an accommodation destination like no other. ... more   less
