Westin guests can now enjoy Nintendo’s Wii interactive, remote-contolled game console thanks to a partnership between the hotel and the video-game company.
Available at fitness centres in 10 Westin hotels, the specially designed console offers games such as Wii Sports (featuring tennis, golf, baseball, bowling and boxing), Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree, Wii Play and others.
In addition, Westin’s test hotels have introduced the just-launched Wii Fit, which, via the Wii Balance Board, allows guest to perform more than 40 yoga, aerobics, strength-training and balance activities.
The Wii experience is available at such Westin properties as Harbor Castle, in Toronto; Galleria, in Houston, Tex.; Diplomat, in Hollywood, Ca.; and St. Francis, in San Francisco.
