Astronauts aboard Starlab -- which is the replacement for the International Space Station -- will get to hang out hundreds of miles above the surface of the Earth ... in astronaut suites designed by Hilton Hotels. The luxury hotel chain will be designing rooms, suites and lounge areas of the new space station, which is scheduled to be launched into low-Earth orbit by 2027. These living areas are expected to be more luxurious than ever before -- and, of course, the views from the rooms will be priceless.

Sure you'd have a nice view but I wonder if other problems, issues and inconveniences would be same for travelers up there as we experience down here. For example:

  5. Complimentary breakfast but there are no bagels left and they ran out of waffle batter.
  6. Poor Wi-Fi
  7. Room key doesn't work
  8. Sure, there's a room but where do you park?
