Are you an old school gamer? Atari has revealed it is developing Atari-branded hotels in eight cities in the United States, according to azfamily.com/

The Atari-themed hotels "will feature common areas following the latest trends in hospitality, with a focus on the video game universe and the Atari brand," the news release added. Atari is known for games such as 'Asteroids', 'Centipede', 'Pong' among others. 

Developers plan to break ground this year on the first hotel, located in Phoenix close to the 'Woz U' university campus, which was created by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

In addition to Las Vegas, the other cities that are planned for the Atari-themed hotels include Austin, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; San Francisco, California; San Jose, California; Seattle, Washington.

Atari plans to create a unique vacation experience, combining lodging with a one-of-a-kind video game-themed destination. You can expect to see retro favourites as well as modern touches. The hotels will feature fully immersive experiences for every age and gaming ability, including the latest in VR and AR (Virtual and Augmented Reality). A typical hotel will reportedly include an eSports studio, an Atari gaming playground, meeting and event rooms, co-working spaces, restaurants, bars, a bakery, movie theatre and a gym.
