During Hotels Week, we'll be showcasing some of the coolest, most unique and craziest amenities located in hotels in and around Seattle. So next time someone asks you for tips on where to stay in town, you'll sound like you know what you're talking about. Got a suggestion? Send it on over to the tipline.
Tourists come to Seattle for many reasons. They come to see landmarks like the Space Needle and walk Pike Place Market. They come to dine at Canlis or wait in line at Salumi. They ride ferries to Bainbridge Island and Ducks in Lake Union. One thing that might be a little tough to do in the middle of it all, however, is play a round of golf. There are plenty of courses around Seattle and in the suburbs, but who has time for all that when there's so much to do in town?
Enter Hotel 1000's Virtual Golf Room...
The golf room lets you play a round of golf at 50 of the world's best courses thanks to an infrared tracking system with two planes, each with over 680 sensors calculating the velocity, spin and trajectory of the ball. The system even provides real-time ball flight, interactive practice sessions and multiple hitting surfaces.
The Old Course at St Andrews. Pebble Beach. Pinehurst. Valderrama. Who knew you could come to Seattle to play them all? And if you're a little rusty, no problem. Private instruction with a golf professional can be arranged. And what would a round of golf be without some beverage and snack service? You'll get that as well.
