Some hotels offer amenities like complimentary breakfast and free wifi in order to get guests into their rooms. Others take advantage of location, or perhaps feature a five-star restaurant. Still others take advantage of diehard fans of the cinema. Movie themed hotels are everywhere. They provide a guest the opportunity to feel like one of their favorite film characters, or sleep in quarters designed to look like a famous movie set. Here are the coolest themed hotel rooms that movie nerds will love.

Sleep Where Luke Skywalker Sleptfans from around the world flock to what is known as The Star Wars Hotel. The Hotel Sidi Driss was used in 1976 as the filming location for the home of young Luke Skywalker and his aunt and uncle on their home planet of Tatooine. The location was used again for 2002's Attack of the Clones. The hotel itself looks like it could come from a galaxy far, far, away with its rocky, cave-like exteriors. This is another non-luxury dwelling; the rooms really do resemble caves, do not have windows, and cots are used for beds.Would you stay here?

Film: TRON: Legacy
Two British sci-fi mega-fans had a vision to build a hotel room suite made entirely of ice and snow that looked like a scene out of the movie TRON: Legacy. The Legacy of the River room at the Ice Hotel in Sweden features the film's futuristic one of a kind style.The hotel itself is made of 21,500 tons of snow and 900 tons of ice. The room's creators, Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas-Jones, described their vision in an interview with Wired, "The use of lighting and the material finishes in this nightclub scene are very close to ideas we have been discussing for use in the real world, as well as being close to what we could achieve with ice and snow and a little imagination."Would you stay here?
