Hulu Motel: Streaming Service Opening Immersive Pop-Up Experience Inspired by Its Shows

by Leanne Stahulak

For a limited time, fans of several Hulu Originals can check in to the Hulu Motel and experience pieces of these TV shows in action.

According to Collider, the Hulu Motel is a new pop-up experience created for “obsessed” viewers who just can’t get enough TV. Or, more specifically, can’t get enough Hulu content and want to explore various references and easter eggs connected to their favorite shows.

Referenced shows at the Motel include The Handmaid’s Tale, Only Murders in the Building, Bob’s Burgers, Atlanta, The Great, The Kardashians, Mayans M.C., and Fire Island. There are doubtless more references waiting inside, but those are the shows that Hulu chose to promote in a new 30-second promo. You can check out the promo for yourself below.

Fans who want to “check in to their obsessions” will receive no judgment from the staff at the motel. It’s an open-world experience taking place over three separate days. You can explore four fully-immersive rooms dedicated to Hulu content. You cannot, unfortunately, stay overnight at the Motel.

The event will take place at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City, near Los Angeles. You’ll receive the exact location, though, once you reserve your tickets online. The event is completely free, but it is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Check-ins start on Thursday, June 23 from 7-10 p.m. You can also explore the Hulu Motel on Saturday, June 25, and Sunday, June 25 from 5-10 p.m.

In total, the experience should last 90 minutes, during which you can interact with tons of memorabilia from iconic Hulu shows. The Motel will encompass a variety of genres, from adult animation to action to comedy to horror. Since “everybody’s into something,” you’re bound to be intrigued by at least one of the rooms provided at the Motel.
