Atari Announced Video Game-Themed Atari Hotels; Construction Starts Mid-2020 in Phoenix, Arizona

Atari has announced some of the craziest news for today, as they plan to make Atari Hotels in the USA!

Yes, you read that right, Atari is jumping into the hospitality industry by bringing awesome video game-themed Hotels to the USA starting this year. The first site that will begin construction on the upcoming Atari Hotels will be Phoenix, Arizona in mid-2020.

The company is planning to bring these video game-themed hotels to other locations as well such as Las Vegas, Chicago, and plenty more. These hotels will be the ultimate gaming immersive hotel experience users can get. These hotels will use state of the art VR and AR technology and they will also be the host to multiple eSport events in the future. This is a super cool idea for Atari and the gaming community.

Hotel development and design is being led by Shelly Murphy’s GSD Group and Napoleon Smith III, producer of the wildly successful Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise reboot. True North Studio, a leading Phoenix, AZ-based real estate developer — currently working alongside GSD Group with Steve Wozniak’s Woz Innovation Foundation — will develop the first Atari- branded hotel. 

“Atari Hotels will be the first of their kind in the U.S., offering gamers of all ages the ultimate in immersive entertainment and in every aspect of gaming. We’re excited to be working on this project with such great partners and to bring a big win to Arizona,” added Shelly Murphy.

“We are thrilled to partner with GSD Group and True North Studio to build the first-ever Atari branded hotels across the United States. Together we’ll build a space that will be much more than just a place to stay,” said Fred Chesnais, CEO of Atari. “Atari is an iconic global brand that resonates with people of all ages, countries, cultures and ethnic backgrounds and we cannot wait for our fans and their families to enjoy this new hotel concept.” 


The first of the Atari Hotels is planned to break ground in 2020 in Phoenix, AZ with initial additional hotels planned in Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Jose.
