So we got a little turned on this morning with our list of 10 Tricked Out Hotel House Cars but the reality is, we're not going to be able to afford a $1,000,000 stay at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi just so we can have exclusive access to a Maybach. Yet we've found a more affordable way to indulge in our gearhead fantasies--spending the night at the V8 Hotel in Germany's Meilenwerk Stuttgart, an international hub for car dealers.
The hotel opened last September on the old Böblingen airport field and it's entire inspiration is the automobile. There are 34 rooms inside the hotel and while the single rooms are rather bleak, the 10 themed rooms will satisfy most every auto fantasy you've ever had. Here are some of the stand-out themed rooms:
Autokino; The bed looks like a big red Cadillac and the room is designed to look like a night out at the drive-in movie theater from the 70s. All you need is a schmoopie in bed with you and you can be instantly transported to Lovers Lane.
The second film installment of New Moon is over and gone with it are the hotel packages created around Team Jacob, Team Edward and Team Bella (as if anyone would be on her team!)
So now we must wait--wait for the arrival of the movie on DVD and for the release of the third movie in the Twilight saga, Eclipse, which hits theaters on June 30.
And where would you stay? The Pacific Inn Motel which has six Twilight themed hotel rooms.

Hmm...you definitely can't say it's "too soon" for a Titanic-themed hotel to open in Belfast but we're not so sure if we're loving the idea of a hotel that's built around a tragedy. But thanatourists will love this place.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, a five-star 90-room hotel with a swimming pool, a gymnasium and a Titanic theme has been announced for the old Harland and Wolff Headquarters building at Queen's Island in Belfast, near where the doomed ship was constructed.
The hotel, if plans are approved, will be part of a larger revitalization project called the Titanic Signature Project, which seeks to restore the Thompson Dock and the slipways where the Titanic and her sister ship, The Olympic, were built. This Titanic Quarter, as the area is called, will also have apartments, an entertainment district and an amusement park, Titanic-themed of course.
Don't lie. If we told you that there was a Barbie Suite in Las Vegas you would be kind of interested. Because you know it would be over-the-top. And pink. And sorta crazy in a cute bachelorette party-ish way. Or perhaps someone would have enough sense to use it as the set for the nobody-can-believe-this-is-a-real-show reality mess The Cougar.
Nonetheless, our little sibs at VegasChatter tipped us off to this bad boy (er, bad girl?) this morning: The Palms has unveiled their Barbie Suite (as you can see, it's, uh, sorta pink), done up completely by designer Jonathan Adler:
Featuring custom details that celebrate Barbie's pink panache, such as skirted, corseted, lace-up "dress" chairs, a sunburst mirror made from 65 Barbie® dolls and custom wall coverings in Barbie’s signature patterns, this suite lets guests live it up in true Barbie style!
In addition the custom Barbie décor, guests can also enjoy relaxing in an extra-large Jacuzzi tub, get cozy in front of a two-way fire place and take in amazing views of the Las Vegas strip.
The place can hold up to 50 people perfect for a Bachelorette shindig or enough room for, oh, we don't know: a cast and crew for a trashy reality show of some sort.
Also, we know the Palms is not the most kid-friendly spot in Las Vegas (hello, Playboy and the playa-boys that come with all that stuff), but this is also a fairly kid-friendly suite.
But wallet-friendly it is not: it'll run you about $3,000 a night. Check it out. You know you want to.

While the Hard Days Night Hotel was the first Beatles-themed hotel on the scene in Liverpool, it might not open in time to be the first Beatles-themed hotel taking guests.
That's because an 18-room Beatles hotel is planned to open soon. The owner is Sarah de Fermor who already owns the Lennon's Bar in town. The hotel will be named after one of the Beatles' song--Eleanor Rigby and is expected to open in two months. Meanwhile the Hard Days Night is set for a January opening.
