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.
