Markets in Everything: London Taxi Hotel

"Hail-a-Hotel"
In preparation for the summer Olympics, London is getting creative.

David Weekes, a full-time cab driver has transformed his cab into a hotel for one, available to rent for £50 (US$78.50) per night. The taxi comes with a "memory foam" mattress, pillow, duvet, a bedside lamp and a teddy bear.  It also offers a solar-powered refrigerator, a radio, an iPad, and camping chairs and a portable table on request.  But Weekes does have two rules: no smoking and no pets.

Creative if nothing else. I'm wondering where one goes in the morning with their luggage in tow when he drives off with your hotel room?

If you read the source article, you'll see that he offers to park by his house and let people use his bathroom.

London doesn't forbid sleeping in your car? A lot of US cities do.
