In somewhat surprising news, Atari hotels have been announced. The gaming-themed hotels will be opening across 8 cities in the USA. Atari have licensed a specialist company to create the hotels, which will feature plenty of entertainment for any retro-fan. So next time you’re in America, you could sleep surrounded by Atari products, just in case you don’t already do that.
Atari had this to say regarding the hotels:
The Atari hotels will feature common areas following the latest trends in hospitality, with a focus on the video game universe and the Atari brand. They will include a state of the art eSport studio, an Atari gaming playground, meeting and event rooms, co-working spaces, restaurants, bars, a bakery, a movie theatre and a gym. They are targeted at family or business travelers, providing a luxurious, relaxed and one-of-a-kind experience.
I’m not sure what a hotel needs an esport studio for, but hey, I’m intrigued to check one of these out if I’m in the USA. The first hotel will be in Phoenix Arizona, and is due to launch this year.
