Doesn’t anyone just use shipping containers for shipping anymore? Lately, we’ve seen the tough, stackable, easy-to-transport steel containers used for everything from a traveling restaurant to a mobile classroom to an off-grid house. Now, British company Snoozebox has come up with yet another clever use for them – a modular, scalable portable hotel system made up of multiple tiered containers, that can be set up anywhere within 48 hours.

Each climate-controlled Snoozebox room features a double bed, wet room, flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, two power outlets, a safe, and key card entry. Maid service and a continental breakfast are also provided. Currently, there are four rooms in each container, although a couple of other options should be available soon – the company plans on offering larger Luxury rooms that each occupy half a container, along with cheaper five-per-container Budget rooms.

The containers themselves are standard ISO (International Organization for Standardization) size, meaning that they can be stacked and shipped anywhere by road, rail, air or water. The system includes its own infrastructure, so no electricity, water or sewage access is necessary. It can also be leveled by its installation crew, so absolutely flat terrain isn’t a requirement.

A complete staff is provided, so clients don’t need to run the hotel themselves. The smallest configuration of the system offers 40 rooms, while over 400 are possible.

The company suggests that clients could include festival organizers, car race teams (or other large groups that are constantly on the road), or even existing hotels that want to extend their capacity during peak season.

A virtual “fly-through” of the system can be seen in the video below.

Real nice. Would go over big during Sturgis in August.

I agree with the other posts; it would be great for big events where one would or might need temporary housing. I think it would be great for the big Oshkosh fly-in event and other similar gatherings.

Great spot for the Democratic National Convention. They can demonstrate their sustainable genius and hopefully one day we can all live in one of these, praising Mother Gaia.

It will redefine "mobile home" for the stupid rich.

thats funny being that most of soldiers stay in these on deployments.

One thing I do not like right offhand---the mesh walkways. If you are on the lower level, and someone walks above, you may be showered with the scrapings from the bottom of their shoes.

Is there a shower? I didn't see the shower. I gotta have a shower.

iHouz.com it's been done before. The problem with sleeping in all that steel is you hear everything, so it's not for the light sleeper.
