The Deep Space Nine Hotel

Anybody got an extra $4.4 mil to lend me? That's what it costs for three nights in this place.

They claim they're going to start hosting the first guests in 2012. People have a
already signed up and it while it looks so cool, it doesn't sound that comfortable.
During their stay, guests would see the sun rise 15 times a day and travel around the world every 80 minutes. They would wear Velcro suits so they can crawl around their pod rooms by sticking themselves to the walls like Spiderman.
However, the package does also include an eight-week training course on a tropical island. So there's that. And the little rocket ship shuttle remains docked to the hotel throughout the course of your stay, so "you don't feel abandoned."

Space tourism. You have to love it. I'm anticipating no one I know has the spare bucks for this, but maybe somebody has only $200K for a ride on Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic ride into suborbital space? That sounds like just as much fun to me.
