I was just reading about a new hotel a few hours away from us, built in Hunan Province, China. Construction began in December of 2011, and it was completed just 360 hours (15 days) later. It isn't much to look at, but it does have many innovative energy saving features, and a price tag of just $17 million USD. I'm impressed, China!
Named T30, the 17,000-square-meter hotel is due to open on January 18, and is expected to be a five-star establishment. The hotel will feature 316 standard rooms, 32 suites, eight ambassador suites and two presidential suites. Other facilities include a restaurant, bar, gym and swimming pool on the top floor, underground parking space for 73 vehicles and even a helicopter pad. The entire hotel costs a total of US$17 million to build.
