How totally, totally cool

Was surfing the web this morning looking for historical photos of the Oshkosh Fly-in, and came across a hotel called the Alexis Park Inn. It's at 1165 S. Riverside Drive in Iowa City, Iowa 52246. And you can fly-in to it.

They have 26 suites, 18 of them furnished in the style of the time period of the aviator or plane involved. And if you click on the individual photos on the page in the link above, and scroll down, you can see photos of each room and all the decorations/furnishings, etc.

And it is totally, totally cool, from the Wright Brothers suite (1900s, Early Days of Flight), the Red Baron suite (1910s, World War I Theme) all the way up to the Apollo suite (1960s, Race to the Moon Space Program Theme).

It makes me wish I had a reason to go to Iowa City, as I would love to stay in the Red Baron suite. Heck, I'd love to visit there 18 times and stay in a different suite each time.

Those suites are sweet!
