AI concierge service, light-speed elevators and temperature-controlled hotel robes? The sky's the limit when it comes to fantasizing about what space hotels might look like, and Hotels.com left nothing to the imagination when it comes to the conjuring up the ultimate intergalactic getaway.

Earlier this month, Hotels.com announced its goal of becoming the first OTA to offer Jetson’s stylefuture hotel bookings in space, and launched a new mock booking page with fanciful renderings depicting what the space hotel experience might entail.

"From a Space Suit Robe and Moon Boot Slipper Set to a Meteor Minibar stocked with astronomical snacks and a space deck pool with 360-degree views of the Milky Way, we’ve covered all the elements you could expect to see in this solar system and beyond," it says on the website. 

Hotels.com reimagined the hotel room robe and slipper set to be made out of "state-of-the-art temperature-controlled technology", while a robot delivers the Big Bang Burger and freeze-dried French fries as part of the intergalactic room service. The holographic morning wake-up call is customizable from a library of 800 earthling celebrities and available in over 10,000 languages — 3,500 of which are celestial.

"The universe is at your fingertips with the hotel amenities smart watch. Hail a UFO (Uber Flying Object), book an appointment at the Solstice Spa or explore our catalog of astronaut activities, all with just a few taps," the website reads.

The all-important hotel pool of the future – called O2 -- features a zero-gravity space deck pool opening up to vast cosmic views.

Space seekers will need to wait until there's an actual space hotel to experience any of these would-be features, but the future might be closer than we think. Companies like Virgin Galactic and SpaceX have achieved marvelous feats in breaking the so-called final frontier and making space tourism a reality.
