Stay Up All Night With Super Mario At London's New GAME Pad
For all you avid gamers out there, London's just unleashed a tricked-out hotel suite that we think will be to your liking. It's called the GAME Pad and it's located inside a Staybridge Suites in Stratford, overlooking Olympic Park.
The Pad is the result of a partnership between Staybridge Suites and GAME, a UK-based video games retailer, who's clearly going above and beyond their call of duty by turning every gamer's fantasy into a reality. Inside, the room contains not just a Nintendo Wii U, not just a Playstation 3, and not just an Xbox 360—but all three, each with their own separate 40" plasma TVs (plus another two screens just for watching regular TV). Add to that a full kitchen with microwavable snacks, bean bag chairs, lava lamps, and, of course, a bed, and you've basically eliminated any reason to ever have to go outside again.
A blog called GadgetsBoy gives an awesome 360º tour of the suite, with commentary, so you get to see all the furniture, the bathroom, the multiple TVs, the snacks, and which games come with the room (yes, Super Mario is one of them).
We particularly liked how the vlogger spends a full thirty seconds gazing down on Olympic Park. We're just guessing, but folks who check in here probably won't be paying attention to the view.
The GAME Pad package costs £199/night and includes one night's stay, access to all the gaming consoles and games, a fully-stocked fridge, and free buffet breakfast.
