If you're bored with staying in the same old generic hotel rooms, why not opt for something a little more out there?

Recent research from Booking.com has found that more than one and three travellers (37 per cent) planned to stay in a more unique location, like a castle or a treehouse.

Travellers are also increasingly seeking "experiences", while on holiday (59 per cent).
In response to this research, the travel booking site has launched a new "Book the US List", which features the quirkiest properties across the United States – stays that go far beyond the traditional hotel experience.

Booking.com has also created three one-of-a-kind experience stays at world famous, iconic properties, only available to book on March 8.

These include a one-of-a-kind overnight experience in New York's Empire State Building, complete with dinner on the 86th floor open-air observation deck and sunrise yoga overlooking the Manhattan skyline.


Fans of Nick Jonas will make all their friends jealous if they nab a night's stay on the pop star's tour bus. The Ultimate Nick Jonas Tour Bus experience includes some of Nick's favorite things, films he's starred in…and for a little while Nick Jonas himself.

Or if basketball is more your thing, you could spend the night in a Booking.com suite inside AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami – the home of the Miami Heat. Along with calling Miami's ultimate sports landmark home and getting to watch a live NBA basketball game from the comfort of their couch with an uninterrupted court view, the stay includes a VIP tour and other surprises and delights.

In addition to these limited once-in-a-lifetime stays, the 'Book the US' List includes crazy, cool properties across each US state for every budget and type of trip travellers could imagine. With options ranging from national landmarks to caves, houseboats, train cars, tiny homes, castles, treehouses and more, everywhere from major cities to remote countryside, mountains and coasts.

These include a lighthouse in Massachusetts, a cave in New Mexico and a vintage trailer in Oregon.
