For the most part, elevators tend to be rather functional and efficient machines. The reliable box playing sounds that vaguely resemble music. They get you to where you need to go. However, there are some places around the world that think an elevator can be more than just a boring box. Here are a few elevators located at a few hotels around the planet that have truly taken elevator design to a whole new level:
This elevator is located in Philadelphia at the Hotel Palomar. Its windows overlook Philly’s Rittenhouse Square and all of the rooms at the hotel are furnished with a 1960’s theme.
This beautiful and ornate elevator is something you are unlikely to see anywhere. That’s because it is the original elevator built at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego back in 1888.
The elevator is at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. The ancient Egyptian themed hotel, and elevator, is complete with hieroglyphics and the elevator is tilted at a 39 degree angle so that riders have a rather unusual areal view of the lobby.
The Mona Lisa mooning guests? This crazy elevator is located in the Morgan Hotel in Dublin.
The Marriot in NYC will transport you into the next century with this futuristic elevator that presents a breathtaking view of everything around it.
