Top Hunger Games – Inspired Hotels
The second Hunger Games movie opens today in theaters across the U.S. – Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The much anticipated film starts off with Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) returning home after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games with Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). They must next leave their families behind and embark on a “Victor’s Tour” of the various districts.
We were one the first media companies in the world to broadcast the Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie trailer back in July, giving Hunger Games fans a sneak peak at the upcoming movie.
Booking.com has put together a list of hotels from around the world with Hunger Games – inspired accommodations. Which hotels do you feel Katniss Everdeen would be most comfortable staying in?
Museum Hotel – Cappadocia, Turkey
The world watched as Katniss and Peeta huddled in a cave to try and outlive their fellow tributes in the 74th Annual Hunger Games. With Peeta struggling for his life, it is here that we all “oohed” and “aahed” as they shared their first kiss. While dirt, mud and covering ourselves with leaves don’t necessarily sound like the most ideal weekend getaway, we would opt for a bit more elegance in this Turkey, Museum Hotel (photo above) for our cave habitation.
Treehotel– Harads, Sweden
We can all remember Katniss Everdeen’s nights spent tied to tree branches, hiding from her Hunger Games rivals. The Treehotel in Sweden, allows guests to experience a similar nights’ stay…minus the flying arrows and tracker jackers. The hotel offers a unique and gravity-defying stay amid the Harads’ forest. No doubt Katniss would have preferred hunkering down in one of these cozier accommodations during her time in the 74th annual Hunger Games arena.
Bubble Hotel – Mullihotell – Suur-Rootsi, Estonia
Built to resemble a clock, with every hour bringing another torturous event by the Gamemakers, the 75th Hunger Games arena had the Tributes trapped in a deathly dome. The Bubble Hotel – Mullihotell in Estonia provides those looking for a different type of accommodation a chance to experience that dome encasing. As a partially transparent bubble tent with a transparent roof, visitors will feel like Katniss and Peeta, without having to worry about hourly attacks by monkey mutations and jabberjays.
nhow Berlin – Berlin, Germany
The residents of Panem’s Capital are beaming with flamboyant clothing and even more decorated skin. With vibrant colored skin and tattoos, the people of the Capital will do anything to look the part – including implanting jewels into their bodies! While we aren’t advising that you go out and dye yourself purple, we do recommend the nhow Berlin hotel, which exudes the same liveliness as Panem’s highest-praised district.
Sleepbox Hotel – Moscow, Russia
To make final preparations for the game, Katniss and her beloved stylist, Cinna, gather in her Launch Room to say their goodbyes. It is here that Cinna applies the finishing touch to her arena uniform: The gold Mockingjay pin. These capsule rooms are perfect for any visitor looking to get the Launch Room feel, without actually being thrust into a death match. And no, we cannot promise a pin on every pillow.
Sheraton Diana Majestic Hotel– Milan, Italy
Located in the Appalachia, District 12’s main industry is coal mining. It was also the fault of a coal mining accident that Katniss and Prim lost their father, before the stories begin. In honor of the mining district, we scoured the globe for an all-black hotel space…and we found it. To get the full underground and coal experience, visitors can stay in this luxe hotel with the blackout rooms – it definitely beats getting yourself muddied in coal.
Longitude 131 – Ayers Rocks, Australia
While we truly can appreciate the courage, bravery and strength that each tribute has to enter the arena, our idea of camping is a little bit more glamorous. Instead of a night in a man-made terrain watching arrows fly high above your head, how about a more comfortable evening spent under the stars in a man-made five star tent. No offense to Katniss and the rest of the Hunger Games tributes, but “glamping” fits a little more with our style.
Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière – Paris, France
While we would all love to have the glitzy life like the infamous President Snow, some odds just aren’t in our favor. However, what we can promise is a Booking delightful stay in one of the world’s most glamorous properties. So kick back, relax, and eat as many berries as your heart desires.
