Since the advent of the design hotel, some have labored to elevate the idea to an art form. This is especially true of German artist Lars Stroschen, the owner and manager of the 30-room Propeller Island City Lodge. He pours all his creative energies into the hotel, and each room is wildly unique, ranging from the surreal Upside-Down Room, where the handmade furnishings hang from the ceiling and guests sleep and sit in comfortable boxes hidden away under the floorboards, to the kaleidoscopelike Mirror Room, with mirrors covering every surface of the diamond-shaped space. Other rooms, like the Clouds Room and the Orange Room, are comparatively calming and minimalist. You have to pick your accommodations carefully: Perhaps life's stresses call only for the Padded Room and not yet the one where the bed's in a coffin. For most, it's a place to gawk at but not to actually stay, with more visual thrills than frills: For instance, a single attendant works reception from 8 a.m. to noon only.
