Harry Potter hotel rooms are more proof HP isn't going anywhere
Accio awesome vacation! That's us summoning a trip to this hotel in London, where the Georgian House Hotel features special Harry Potter-themed rooms.
The hotel has done its best to bring guests a Harry Potter experience with these rooms, designed to look and feel like the famous dormitories of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
"Someone would like to come to the Georgian House to have this experience if they were really into Harry Potter [inaudible.] ... Stay the night in one of our wizard chambers and that should be really very exciting and magical for children," a hotel employee explained.
The hotel staff even lights candles and gets music playing for guests before they enter those rooms to up the atmosphere.
There are two wizarding-themed rooms: the "Wizard Chambers." There are four-poster beds, just like the wizard students had. You'll see cauldrons, trunks, spellbooks and potion bottles.
The rooms can come as a package deal with a tour of landmarks in London from the films, plus a trip to the Warner Bros. Studio for its "The Making of Harry Potter Tour."
Serena von der Heyde, a partner in the hotel, told The Independent she wanted to make younger guests feel welcome at the 163-year-old property. "I have been overwhelmed by the number of young couples coming to stay in them, perhaps drawn by the nostalgia of their youth with the Harry Potter series."
According to The Telegraph the rooms cost about $400 a night for two adults without any package deals.
Von der Heyde said she was also inspired when she learned how popular Harry Potter-themed tours are in London. Potter has proved profitable worldwide, even in an era when the movies are over and done.
NPR reported in June that since Universal Orlando first opened its Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 2010, "Park profits have more than doubled and attendance has increased more than 30 percent."
In July, the park opened Diagon Alley, a second part of the attraction that reportedly cost hundreds of millions of dollars. A big gamble, but one likely to pay off.
J.K. Rowling and Hollywood have proven to us that Harry Potter's story is far from over.
Just last week, media and fans flipped over news she'd be releasing a new story set in the wizarding world for Halloween.
The same went for earlier this month, when we learned spinoff "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" would be made into a trilogy of films.
The first one's not out until fall 2016. So until then, book a room at the Georgian -- and bring your wand.
