- "Huge flying hotels drifted aimlessly across the continents with no destination in mind, just a place to get away from personal pressures."
- ―Hari Seldona
Flying hotels were equipped with inflatable air bladders and translucent sheets of flexible film. They would fly at random over the grassy surface of Alderaan, without a destination or a schedule. These transports were designed for strained tourists, who could stare out across the untouched landscape of Alderaan and forget their responsibilities for a time.
