These days there are more types of hotels to choose from than pastries in an Italian pastry shop.

Categories include: Hip (popular with celebrities); underwater, themed boutique, romantic, casino, compact, eco-friendly (IndustryTap, Jul. 2013), child-friendly, high-tech, self-sustaining desert, beach-side, pop-up, social media obsessed, secluded sanctuary, luxury floating, survival pod, shipping container, rustic caveman, frozen, abstract industrial, experimental, fantasy, to name a few.

On a planet with over 7 billion people and a growing middle class there seems to be room for hotels that cater to almost any whim imaginable. While most of the following are futuristic designs, some rely on converting old or even ancient venues into modern luxury resorts.
