Hilton hotels Will Design Astronaut Suites on Private Starlab Space Station

Hilton wants to ‘reimagine the human experience in space, making extended stays more comfortable.’

Hilton is ready to take its hospitality off-planet.

The hotel giant will move into a future Earth-orbiting space station called Starlab along with Nanoracks, Voyager Space and Lockheed Martin, who first announced the orbiting complex in 2021.

“Hilton will bring the company’s renowned hospitality expertise and experience to support the design and development of crew suites aboard Starlab, helping to reimagine the human experience in space, making extended stays more comfortable,” officials said in a joint statement(opens in new tab) Tuesday (Sept. 20).

Starlab is one of a set of private space stations that NASA hopes will replace the International Space Station in the coming decade.
