Travel Trend Has Emerged With Bizarre Hotels (VIDEO)

Hotels have been stepping up their game lately, going beyond the mini fridge and morning danish when offering guest perks.

Pirate tuck-ins and Snuggie sutras are examples of weird hotel amenities that are actually available. And, in locations dotting the globe, some hotel guests are able to enjoy the sweet rewards of in-house beekeeping.

It's not just the services that are getting spruced up, hotel locations are increasingly off the beaten path as well. The body of a retired plane, a paper factory, and a former monastery are all places travelers can get a little shut-eye. Don't forget hotels housed in former prisons.

So, are bizarre hotels the wave of the future? See what the BBC has to say below.
