Theme hotels have fallen off significantly since the rise of the interstate. Whereas once our nation’s highways were dotted with any number of clever themed establishments for passing a night away from home, now we’re typically treated to hotel chains with less personality than a Number 2 pencil. Fortunately, ze Germans are on it. If you happen to find yourself traveling in or around Stuttgart, you might want to stop in at the Meilenwerk, a.k.a. the V8 Hotel – lodging that offers up special accommodations for the auto obsessed among us. With 34 rooms total, a handful of suites are gussied up with special themes that include some pretty wild décor.
Always wanted to spend the night snoozing away in a Cadillac? No problem. Does driving a Mercedes-Benz through a car wash make you want to take a nap? This hotel has you covered. You can even opt to sleep in a Morris-Minor garage if your heart so desires. Room rates vary with season, but the top-of-the-line Zeppelin Suite will set you back around $489 per night.
