There are many hotels that we've seen in movies and TV shows that are actually real. For example, the movie The Shining was inspired by a haunted hotel room that Stephen King stayed in with his wife. We see cool hotels in the movies and we don’t even consider the fact that they are real businesses. Depending on the hotel, they have the ability to transport us to a fantasy world or a creepy place.
On the other hand, some people have opened up hotels because they were inspired by a movie or TV show. The best part about a hotel room is that it sets the mood. For these hotels on our list, they transport us to the set of some of our favorite movies or TV shows. We love them because they remind us of our favorite TV shows or movies. Some of these hotels are so much fun, they allow their guests to feel like the characters. Now, that’s pretty exciting. They offer packages that allow you to have a movie experience like nothing you have ever felt before. Check out these 25 hotels inspired by your favorite movie or TV show.

For all those Trekkies out there, we have a Star-Trek-themed room. Unfortunately, the Sheraton only did the room as part of a promotion for Star Trek Into Darkness and the room was only available for a month in 2013.
