Underwater Hotel Death Match: Poseidon Versus Hydropolis
We love this statistical breakdown of the proposed underwater hotels--Hydropolis and Poseidon--compiled by Waterlog. Using information gathered from hyped-up press releases, news reports, and brochures, Waterlog assembles a side by side comparison of each hotel. So far it looks like Hydropolis is winning with its earlier opening date, more number of rooms, missile-detecting radar and a cheaper room rate. (Although having in-room fish feeders would have been nice.)
But in the end, this is all the ultimate in hotel hype. Or as Waterlog puts the chances of these hotels opening:
Neither one is my bet. Most of these Jules Verne fantasies get no further than a URL.
Amen. The same can almost be said of Jason Pomeranc's hotels.
