Texas' first shipping container hotel opens in beloved antique mecca Round Top

FlopHouze, a new "shipping container hotel" located just a few minutes from downtown Round Top, is offering another reason to make the hour-and-a-half trek from Houston.

Housed on the same property as the Round Top Ballroom and Recycling the Past, the six-unit FlopHouze is the first hotel in Texas to be made entirely out of shipping containers, according to a release.
