A Temporary Syfy Hotel Popped Up in A Parking Lot Just for SXSW
With so many people converging on Austin, TX, the city probably could use as many hotel rooms as it can produce. The Syfy channel is here to help.
The network has created a pop-up hotel in an Austin parking lot to promote its upcoming show Defiance. According to info we received, the hotel provides modest rooms, but round-the-clock concierge, twice daily maid service, a communal lounge, an interactive bar (in case you were wanting more than just a cocktail), and the chance to play games and otherwise get the Defiance experience.
The show, which debuts on April 15, is about an Earth of the future (the year 2046), where aliens are now members of the population. Defiance used to be St. Louis, and after two newbies come to town, things start to happen. Cast member Jesse Rath is in the photo above.
Unless you plan on spending a lot of time in the room, I’ve never really understood the point of having a large or expensive hotel room. All you need is a clean bed, a shower, and a safe place to store your stuff right? Or are you into more luxe accommodations?
