Aircraft Carrier Converted Into Hotel in China

Aircraft carriers are humongous ships, generally seen by people as a representation of the military might of their country. The status that they enjoy apparently makes them very well suited for commercial activities as well, including something like a luxury hotel. Kiev is a retired Soviet aircraft carrier that was sold to China in 1996, and was used as part of a military theme park since 2004. Now, the ship has been turned into a luxury hotel. The promoters sent a good $15.5 million in revamping the ship and giving it the luxury look, bypassing the traditional navy cabins the ship would have had.

The hotel has about five presidential suites, each equipped with lavish accessories and furniture and looking forward to guests with deep pockets who will inadvertently come for a chance to spend time on an aircraft carrier.
