The Big Sleep Hotel

Owner: John Malkovich

Location: Eastbourne/Cardiff/Cheltenham, UK

Summer price range: $91 (standard) - $400 (group) per night

The Big Sleep mini-chain delivers budget-friendly lodging in a package of minimalist pastel décor. John Malkovich became involved (as one of six partners) with the first of his three hotels in Cardiff around the same time he had that movie named after him, 2000’s Being John Malkovich. "I think the thing about investments is that they’re always dangerous," he told The Independent at the time. "I do not see the point of doing something like this unless I am interested."
