Westin Hotels to Become Wii Gamers' Paradise

Going on vacation and want to make sure you can exercise in your room with your Wii Fit? Or can't bear to leave your Super Mario Galaxy game behind? Nintendo has announced a partnership with Westin Hotels to make sure you don't have to.

Tennis, anyone? Nintendo and Westin Hotels & Resorts announce a partnership today that will allow guests to experience the Wii™ sensation with a special version of the console ideally suited for use in the hotel environment. Westin Hotels is the first hotel company to partner with Nintendo for its Wii console and will feature this specially designed console as part of the brand's WestinWORKOUT program at 10 hotels across the United States.  The special game console is pre-loaded with many popular games, including the groundbreaking Wii Sports™ game, and today debuts at WestinWORKOUT fitness centers at The Westin Times Square in New York City and The Westin Bellevue in Washington state.

Eight additional Westin properties will join the program in May: The Westin Hilton Head; The Westin Crown Center, Kansas City; The Westin Harbor Castle, Toronto; The Westin Diplomat, Hollywood; The Westin St. Francis, San Francisco; The Westin St. Louis; The Westin Galleria, Houston; and The Westin Savannah Harbor.  Westin plans to roll out additional Wii systems following guest feedback from the initial hotel pilot.


What, no Super Mario Galaxy? Well, you could always bring your own CD.

I remember seeing games consoles available in hotels before, but not as part of a "workout" programme.  It's far more physical than any other video game system (besides DDR), but I still think it's ridiculous to put it in a fitness center.  But hey, if it helps gets the video gaming population in shape then go for it.

Having stayed in a Westin hotel on business trips this makes perfect sense. The Wii fits in perfectly with the whole antiseptic white/off white color scheeme of all the rooms. :D
