A forward-thinking hotel in the heart of Silicon Valley, Hotel Zetta San Francisco is elevating in-room guest experiences.

Managed by Viceroy Hotels and Resorts, Hotel Zetta is working to introduce ultra-modern amenities and provide guests with unparalleled experiences. Every guestroom offers Volara-powered Alexa technology and suites boast Atari Pong tables.

The hotel is also scaling up technology features outside the guestrooms. The main lobby is home to a virtual reality booth with a number of games. The hotel also offers Oculus Go headsets and Nintendo Switches to guests for complimentary use.

“Hotel Zetta continues to be at the forefront of delivering the latest technological offerings and experiences to our savvy travelers who expect a high caliber of service every time they visit,” said Mark Beevor, general manager, Hotel Zetta. “Being in the heart of an innovation hub like San Francisco, we’re proud to now offer Volara-powered Alexa, as well as a robust selection of tech-centric amenities that can’t be found elsewhere in the city.”

The technical integration is deeply rooted in the hotel’s operation: Guests can now use voice commands to order hotel services directly.

The Atari Pong tables effectively emulate the Pong heyday of the late 1970s with a number of new features like personalized soundtracks, an LED clock display and USB charging.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
