Home Away From Home: The Guggenheim Museum

In the past, my Home Away From Home posts have highlighted designer boutique hotels, crave worthy modern resorts, and the like. But, New York's Guggenheim Museum has gone and played a round of Boggle with the meaning of the word hotel. As part of an exhibition called theanyspacewhatever, the landmark museum will host guests in its "Revolving Hotel Room," a work of art created by Belgian artist Carsten Höller. To hear more about the "hotel,"


The installation will be open this Saturday through Jan. 6, and can be viewed during the day by museum goers, at night becoming a fully-functioning hotel room complete with luxury amenities and sleeping, dressing, and working areas. To explain the word "revolving," the hotel room sits on three motorized glass discs mounted onto a fourth disc that revolve slowly together. The hotel stay is limited to one night, with a maximum of two people per room. Rates range from $299 to $550 per night, but unfortunately the rooms have already sold out. So, unless you've got some serious clout in the Manhattan museum scene, or can make a heavy bid to one of the lucky ones, you'll just have to visit the installation in the daytime.

The Guggenheim is pretty cool. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is meant to be viewed by taking the elevator up and then walking down. It is a giant helix with people walking easily downhill from the top to the bottom without a single stair. Cool museum. You have to like modern art of course... some of it was a waste of wallspace in the Guggenheim like the crap that Pollock produced.
