Toronto’s International Film Festival is upon us, and with that comes an influx of movie stars and luxury hotels pulling out all the stops for its guests. The Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto received quite a bit of hype since it’s the new kid on the block that opened last January, but the Hazelton Hotel took it to a completely new level with its $99,900 bed installation. The Vividus (yes, the bed has a name), is made with Arctic Circle forest-sourced pine, hand-laid springs, and a “carefully balanced blend of hand-teased horsehair, cotton, wool and flax.” Want to experience the most comfortable bed in the world for yourself? Make your reservations at the Hazelton Hotel here!

The Queen Elizabeth 2, an ocean liner previously operating as a cruise ship is in development to become Dubai’s first floating hotel. Although the design of the hotel will differ from its original plan, we certainly have high hopes that it will be nothing short of fabulous. The cruiser made its last trip from New York City to Dubai in 2008, and it has been docked in Port Rashid harbor since. The Telegraph reports that the original plan was to have the QE2 feature 1,000 lavish and luxurious rooms, but now the plan is to have 300 rooms which will maintain many of its original features. We certainly can’t wait to see this floating luxury hotel’s development as it progresses. If you get seasick or like a little more room for exploration, then check out the 61 luxury hotels that are fully grounded and stationary in Dubai!
