Hyperloop Hotel, a project imagined by an architecture student, is to enable people to travel across the U.S. without leaving their room, thanks to a high-speed network of hyperloop stations equipped as luxury rooms.
"Guests would be able to travel to any hotel destination within the network and even visit multiple destinations in a single day," Brandan Siebrecht, the founder of the project, explains. He considers settling 13 Hyperloop Hotels in major U.S. cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City or Boston.
With an estimated cost of $130 million, this project requires the setting up of a whole Hyperloop infrastructure; hence, it will probably not be working before at least 10 years. The propulsion system has undergone an initial test in the Nevada desert that was realized by the startup Hyperloop One in May 2016, targeting commercialization by 2020-2021.
