Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa
Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa
In a city with no shortage of great lodgings, Cape Town’s Grand Daddy Hotel offers guests something a little different: a night’s sleep in a vintage Airstream trailer parked on the roof of the hotel. The top-floor trailer park—which includes seven units, all with views of Table Mountain—was conceived by owner Jody Aufrichtig and local design studio Whatiftheworld. A different South African artist imagined the look of each trailer, and themes include the pink-hued “Love of Lace,” by Tracy Lynch, and Mark and Joe Stead’s “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” featuring a human-size bear suit in the closet. During your stay, take advantage of the adjacent rooftop bar and picnic seating, a more sociable option than trailer-side room service. —Diane Vadino
