The west coast of Australia might be really far away, but it sure does know how to cater to the celebrities who make the trek to the other side of the world for a visit. Now, a posh inner-suburb of Perth will once again be a playground for the stars after a restaurant hangout will turn into an equally posh hotel.

West Perth's vintage building which dates back to 1908 was previously known to locals and visiting celebrities as Julio's Italian restaurant before it closed last year. Just this week, development has been approved to re-open the building as a hot new lobby bar and restaurant for a new luxury 12-story hotel going up behind it, eventually connecting to the 106-year old building.

After attracting the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Pink, Michael Bublé and U2, the restaurant will again be able to host the famous, even offering them plush digs upstairs if they want to stay the night.

But hey, that was fifty years ago, and who's to say Americans still can't be thrilled by a cool motel concept? The first of these, named the Lone Star Court, will open in Austin in 2013, and, appropriately, will feature live music, a fire pit, and a dipping pool.

Here's the deal with in-room amenities. Hotel rooms should be fun. They should be exciting places to stay that offer things you don't normally find in your boring old bedroom.

So if a responsible, decision-making adult wants to indulge in a 1930s-themed room, complete with cocktail shakers, naughty girl playing cards, Lucky Lights candy cigarettes, pre-programmed iPods, and a copy of The Great Gatsby, then they are absolutely entitled to do so. Just as long as they learn to share their toys with their friends.
