Although the Heerim Architectures who designed this hotel in Azerbaijan claim that they drew their inspiration for the hotel’s unique architecture from the Moon (and accordingly named the building “Full Moon Hotel”), the hotel’s resemblance to the Death Star is rather striking. So striking, in fact, that Azerbaijan may find itself flooded with glassy eyed Star Wars fans if this hotel were to be truly put in production. Even without this claim to fame, the Full Moon Hotel would surely be flooded by tourists who want a gorgeous view of the Caspian Sea, which the Hotel conveniently overlooks.
