RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And our last word in business today is Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

That's the message and the title of a combination art installation/holiday experience.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

The Curtis Hotel in Denver is offering the following accommodations: A 5-by-7-foot inflatable chamber - kind of like a kids' bouncy house - set on top of a lift, which is on top of a van. The price tag: $50,000.

MONTAGNE: Of course, David, the package is more than just a night in a strange room. Should you book this cozy plastic room, you'll be greeted by Sonny and Cher impersonators and receive lavish gifts, including crystal-encrusted binoculars and a Tiffany diamond pendant.

GREENE: And we can't forget the in-room amenities, including bellbottoms and 1960s scarves. Renee, it's tempting. I think I'm going to pass on this.

MONTAGNE: And you're not the only one. The hotel has yet to get any takers.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
