    The 19-story, 380-room Shimao InterContinental Hotel is being built in an abandoned quarry in Shanghai, China. The project will cost at least $555 million with nightly rooms expected to start at $320. Surrounding the hotel will be a 428,000 square-metre theme park, complete with room for bungee jumping and rock climbing overlooking the descending 16 floors

    You mean an underwater room like the last time I stayed at a Holiday Inn and the toilet above flooded my room?
     
  4. Hey, that's just like having a rain shower in your room, so don't complain

    Thanks Aloha, that's a very interesting design and I certainly don't connect the I-C brand with a theme park. I wasn't able to find much about the theme park other than this reference:

  7. I'm in China staying at an IC and met their Asian sales manager who is very excited about this new property and the whole environment that will surround it. IC now has over 200 properties in China and growing fast.
