Union Station in Denver was thought by many to have seen its final days, until it was announced the unused train station will be transformed into a trendy new hotel.
The station was originally built in 1894 and frequented by 80 trains a day at its peak during the 1920s and 30s.
Plans for the hotel include 112 guest rooms which will be attached to the station’s main terminal, [which] will become home to a series of four restaurants, as well as a huge beer hall.

Those of you who’ve been reading Unconsumption for a while might recall our 2010 post about Milan’s Maison Moschino — the boutique hotel the Italian fashion house Moschino opened in 2010 in a retrofitted 1840 railway station — where some guest rooms are furnished with ball gowns as headboards. 
Turns out, the hotel offers additional Unconsumption-y design inspiration in the form of lamps made from dresses. (photo via DiarioDesign)
Related: For a review of the hotel, described “as a place for playful photo shoots,” among other things, check out this January 2011 writeup from The New York Times.

Over on TreeHugger, friend of Unconsumption Jerry James Stone writes about the Capsule Hotel, moored in The Hague:

Garbage Architect Denis Oudendijk has gone and done the impossible by making off-shore oil rig waste actually cool. He’s turned discarded escape pods into rustic, floating hotel rooms.

Bauhaus School Recycled as Hotel
"The school—located in Dessau (formerly East) German and closed down by the Nazis in 1933 because it was "decadent" art—has been redeveloped into a kind of boutique youth hostel. The building is minimalist with splashes of colour—orange walls and yellow ceilings, that are aesthetic and functional. Part of the building has been allocated to the dormitory, with one night stays permitted."
