    Ever been disappointed that your average hotel isn't video game-y enough for you? Well, it looks like Atari is primed to fill that specific niche, with the announcement of Atari video game hotels. GSD Group has teamed up with Atari to attain the rights to constructing hotels based on the brand across the United States. The first one is set to be built in Phoenix, Arizona, with seven more to follow in other American cities, such as Austin, Seattle, San Franciso, Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, and San Jose. The press release claims that these hotels "will be the first of their kind", and will offer "immersive entertainment and in every aspect of gaming" which include VR and AR, and venues tailored to accommodate for esports events. The first Atari hotel will begin construction in mid-2020.

    Weird way for arcades to come back (they'll definitely have the space for a few atari cabinets) but should be cool to see anime and gaming conventions in a gaming inspired hotel.
    Bet they'll be stupid expensive though.
    Hopefullynthat new atari console wont ruin the brand name too much.

    Of all the things to bet on the Atari name being slapped onto next I would not have gone with hotels saving that they are part of a resort.

    The Atari console was good for it's time but nowadays the memory is heavily tainted due to all the crappy games.

    Let's hope it's not endorsed by trump $500 per hour and you may get to finish one level of pong.
