The real reason pod hotels aren’t popular

leave a comment »

Theory/Rant: Pod hotels have not caught on in the US because people here are uncomfortable with the idea of renting a shelf to stash their body for the night while it sleeps. They need a whole room, or suite of rooms, to give some impression that they, at least temporarily, own a little space where they are masters, and would rather dole out significantly more to give themselves this illusion than accept that what they really need is to sleep for the night and have use of facilities to clean themselves up from their bodily functions. Sleeping and the afore-mentioned hygiene activities are necessities of the organic machinery our selves inhabit, and confronting this reality would force a hard look at the harsh realities of what our lives really are. Avoiding such realizations at any cost by exercising control temporarily over some place is apparently the order of the day.
