Wouldn't this be super fun...?

...I mean... at least for the first 3-4 minutes before the claustophobia kicks in and you start hyperventilating and clawing frantically to escape.

Wow that's so awesome!

But I'm not sure I could really sleep there, I'd be worried about the whole dang thing getting swamped. There's no such thing as "perfectly safe"...I mean, no one expected the Titanic to sink.

What's the room service called, mermaid?

I'm sorry. Daryl Hannah gets first refusal. (And last refusal, too, including all the begging required.)

That is so cool. If it was about 10 feet under water and had an escape tube to the surface, I'd do a day or two. I've gone on one through one of the longest aquarium tunnels before and wondered what would happen if it busted.

My sister stayed overnight in the real one. Wish I could find the pix.

Hopefully BP doesn't drill anywhere near there. This looks like a fantastic hotel! I'd stay there if cash was no object.

I opened this thread only to post that. I wouldn't be able to breathe in there either. I am not sure it would help much even if you are awake and all comes down.

You should have you reach the hotel by putting in you in an old inoperable car and rolling you off the pier, where a cable eventually drags the car into an underwater garage. That would make people appreciate the hotel room even more.

Let's hope the guy that maintains the ventilation systems doesn't get lazy before the earthquake.

Think they need a window washer?

Think about it, would it even be half as fun if there were no risk of dying? I seem to remember going up to the top of the CN tower (or some Canadian tower) and jumping on those windows they have despite knowing it was a stupid idea.

I remember seeing a clip many years ago where a person tries to demonstrate strength of glass windows but it breaks and he dies.. only if I could remember if that was from movie, show, or where,...

What a great hotel. I would love to stay there.

That was a lawyer in Toronto.

(1996, Toronto) Police said a lawyer demonstrating the safety of windows in a downtown Toronto skyscraper crashed through a pane of glass with his shoulder and plunged twenty-four floors to his death. A police spokesman said Garry, thirty-nine, fell into the courtyard of the Toronto Dominion Bank Tower as he was explaining the strength of the building's windows to visiting law students. Garry had previously conducted the demonstration of window strength without mishap, according to police reports. The managing partner of the law firm that employed the deceased told the Toronto Sun newspaper that Garry was "one of the best and brightest" members of the two-hundred-man association.
