Markets in Everything: Orbiting Space Hotel

DAILY MAIL -- "Tiring of the annual two-week break in a Med hot spot? Fed up with overcrowded resorts with no room to move? Then how about a real get-away-from-it-all holiday with plenty of space – in space? Russia yesterday announced plans for a hotel in orbit 217 miles up which would house seven guests in four cabins and have huge windows for views of the Earth turning below." 

Cost? $165,000 for a five-day stay, plus about $825,000 for transportation via rocket.  Due to open in 2016.

This is very cool, although personally I am not to keen about spending time in even a terrestrial hotel run by Russia. Or flying in Russian built planes. Just sayin.
