Have you heard of those super trendy "pod hotels" that have been popping up all over the world? Pod hotels became famous after appearing in Tokyo, Japan years ago. Now it seems that every major country has gravitated towards this efficient hotel design and Canada is next!
Canada is officially opening its first-ever pod hotel and it's going to be amazing. Pod hotels are designed to fit tons of guests in a hostel type environment. Since you're limited to a tiny "pod-like" hotel room aka your bed, the prices of your accommodations are super affordable! It's the perfect hotel if you're traveling, love to meet new people or if you're just in town to ski or snowboard for a few nights!
Each bunk is designed to comfortably fit 1-2 guests and there are commonly large areas that are open to all travelers, such as a kitchen or a living room area.
Each pod will have a super soft double mattress, mirrors, hooks and hangers for your clothing, built in fans for air circulation, storage units and of course, personal charging systems for your cameras, cell phones etc.
Not to mention, they're going to have funky bathrooms, communal areas and a huge storage room for bikes, snowboards and skis! Oh, and they even have a rooftop patio - how amazing is that?!
Canada's first pod hotel is going to be located in Whistler, BC! Yes, this amazing new hotel is going to be located in the snowboarding and skiing mecca of British Columbia - but don't forget about the summer! Whistler may be known for their powdery snow but Whistler is a huge attraction for the hot summer months.
The brand new pod hotel will be located right in the middle of Whistler Village! This would be the perfect place to stay for a few nights when you bike the trails of Whistler Mountain and party all night at the bars in the Village. We couldn't think of a better place for travelers to come and lay their head than Whistler Village.
The Pangea Pod Hotel is located at 4333 Sunrise Alley. For more information on pricing, suite styles etc. visit their website. Pangea Pod Hotel is set to open in summer 2018 so keep your eyes peeled for their official opening date!
