Time machines might not exist yet, but you better believe that this vacation rental is the closest thing you'll find to one. Hotels.com has partnered with Lisa Frank — yes, the technicolor genius behind all of our back-to-school goodies in the '90s — to launch a special pop-up room inside the Maxfield Lofts apartment building in Downtown L.A., and you could be one of the lucky guests to stay inside.
Dubbed the "Lisa Frank Flat," the accommodation is a neon-colored wonderland, filled with Lisa Frank's adorable cartoon characters, plenty of leopard and zebra print, and rainbows — lots of rainbows.
There's also a desk filled with '90s-era stationary and office supplies, a cabinet full of Lisa Frank stuffed animals, and a mini bar with retro confectionary treats à la Fun Dip and Gushers. "Blast from the past" has never described a space so perfectly.
The Lisa Frank Flat will be bookable starting Friday, October 11, for stays between October 11 and October 28, and each night will run you $199. That price also includes a few keepsakes, like the Lisa Frank robe and slippers in the bathroom. Get ready for a whole lot of nostalgia.
