  • While planning my parents’ trip to Germany, my mom keeps joking that she’s going to bring back her own new custom-designed German set of wheels. Maybe staying here is a less-pricey solution? The V8 Hotel in Stuttgart’s Meilenwerk, Germany is a car-lover’s dream. The 34-room hotel is built inside what used to be the old Boblingen Airport (the control tower is now a three-level suite). Guests can spend the night in a ’70s Cadillac drive-in cinema, a Mercedez Benz carwash, or even a Morris Minor garage. Check out more pictures here. [Telegraph.co.uk]
  • Crowne Plaza hotels have recently begun installing grass floors into some of their conference rooms. They hope the new floors will inspire new, more creative ideas from business employees, in addition to making business meetings more enjoyable. [Independent.ie]
