The new hotels "offer guests a wholly unique hospitality experience inspired by, and built with, classic and modern video game culture in mind."

Guests at the hotels can expect to enjoy the latest in video games, immersive entertainment and retro-style gaming arcades. The hotels will also feature nightclubs and themed restaurants and bars.
