Cabin, projet innovant d'hôtel en mouvement

Cabin, a U.S. start-up which develops the project of a moving hotel, has just secured more than $3 million in seed financing.

Cabin has just received $3.3 million in seed financing for its innovative project: a moving hotel which enables its guests to travel from one location to another during a good night's sleep. Aboard this hotel on wheels, may be found one pod per guest, but also a shared lounge and bathroom.

Tom Currier, CEO and co-founder, Cabin, explains this initiative that is subsequent to other 'millennials-focused' concepts, as this public delights in spontaneous trips and lifestyle hostels: "by eliminating the travel time from traveling, Cabin is giving people the freedom to get where they need to be - without having to spend their precious time in transit."

"Lost time, stressful logistics, and extra costs often keep us from easily (and spontaneously) traveling between cities," the company's website sums up. "We wanted a new way to travel that conveniently connected us to other people and places."

So far, the only route available via Cabin's website links Los Angeles and San Francisco; however, other routes are under development and investor support, as illustrated in the seed financing campaign, should contribute to the concept's expansion.
