VIDEO: Hotel Shaped Like A Potato Opening Soon In Idaho


Tourists in Idaho will soon be able to spend the night in a giant potato. The 28-foot-long steel-and-plaster potato was created in 2012 to promote Idaho potatoes, and criss-crossed America on the back of a truck for seven years. Now it's been converted to an Airbnb rental southeast of Boise. The CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission calls the potato hotel "a way of inviting people to experience Idaho in a unique way." The converted potato has electricity, running water, insulation, heating and air conditioning. It's also been furnished with a queen-sized bed and a chandelier made of antlers. The potato hotel will open in May for 200-dollars a night.
