When news of a new Joie de Vivre video game-themed hotel hit the internet this spring geeks everywhere freaked out. Everyone began to wonder: What will it look like? How much will it cost? What games will it feature? We have the honor of working blocks away from San Francisco's newly renovated Hotel Tomo so we headed over for an up-close look at their eccentric accommodations.
While the two gaming suites have just opened for business, the hotel has been redecorated in an eye-catching Japanese Pop theme and features beautiful murals, iPod docking stations, flat screen TVs, free wireless and comfy "fat boy" gamer chairs in every room. If you're not ready to spring for the more pricey gamer suites, which cost around $500 for a night and can be rented for shorter events, regular rooms start at $109 and feature "On Command" video games and a fun, geeky atmosphere just steps from one of the cities hippest Karaoke spots.
The hotel is well on its way to becoming a geek haven. See for yourself after the break.
