This is taking innovation to its best. Taking something old and historic that was used as a naval base against attacks over 150 years ago, and turning it into luxurious hotels. This is one of the best ways to catch people interest and persuade them to stay and see what this kind of concept looks and feels like. It makes most other ordinary hotels seem rather boring and no reason to visit unless its for a business etc. Unfortunately, with the costs it needed to achieve this, the price to stay at these hotels may possibly be rather pricey.
