Hilton Panama has a new addition to the range of services it can offer its clients: a purpose-built gaming room in an existing suite that has been overhauled by gaming company Alienware.
A new hotel room in the Hilton Hotel in Panama city has been given a techie makeover by gaming company Alienware. Gamers can ensconce themselves in Room 2425 and game away to their hearts content. We find out more.
The ultimate gamer’s getaway in Panama
Perhaps you might not associate Panama with a huge gaming community, but a new hotel room in the Panamanian capital Panama City will give you cause to think again. Room 2425 in the Hilton Hotel Panama has been transformed into a technology paradise perfect for gamers looking to hole up in a hotel with all of the games and gadgets their heart desires. This monochrome set up has everything a gaming geek could wish for, including spectacular views of the beaches outside, although it is likely that guests to this room will pull the curtains and remain inside for the duration of their stay. The hotel room has been revamped by gaming company Alienware, who specialise in the production of gaming-focused laptops, desktops and virtual reality headsets. This award-winning company has a range of products for serious gamers, so it is perhaps no surprise that they were the ones to kit out the gaming getaway at the Hilton Panama.
Gamer’s Hilton hideout
Room 2425 is now no ordinary room. With a price tag of $349 a night, guests staying in the Alienware suite will get a whole array of techie delights for their hard earned cash. Alienware has kitted the room out with numerous gadgets, and even a NASA-designed racing chair if the gamer doesn’t plan on sleeping, although there are also two beds. The setup includes a 65-inch 4K OLED TV, an Alienware PC with a Core i7-7800 and a GTX 1080Ti, Xbox One Elite controllers, an Oculus Rift, an Alienware laptop with a 34-inch supermonitor and a crazy lighting system to make you feel like you’re in your own personal arcade. Alienware has branded the hotel room with their logo and alien insignia. Andres Korngold, Hilton Panama’s director of business development, said, “Ensuring an innovative and differentiating service has been our commitment since our opening in Panama and this initiative shows how important it is for us to contribute to improving more and more the options to stay in Panama, directly impacting on the tourist offer offered by the country for locals and foreigners.” This is just the latest of Hilton’s forays into the world of smart suites, and no doubt the hotel company will continue on this innovative steak, especially if they wish to compete with market giants Marriott, who also experiment with smart rooms and technology in their hotels.
