In an innovative move that merges luxury accommodation with the virtual world of gaming, View Melbourne has introduced the city's first hotel room designed specifically for gaming enthusiasts.

The 35-square-metre haven is not just a room; it's a high-tech gaming paradise that promises to deliver an immersive experience for anyone looking to indulge in their digital pastime in style.

The room is outfitted with a top-of-the-line PC corner, featuring an MSI MEG Trident X2 computer and dual 27-inch 170Hz Esports gaming monitors.

The setup is a dream for both casual and competitive gamers, complete with a full Elgato streaming setup for those who wish to share their gaming prowess with the world. The extensive game library is ever-growing, ensuring that guests have the latest titles at their fingertips.

Console gamers are not left out, with a cosy couch area and a 55-inch Samsung TV connected to a Nintendo Switch. It’s the perfect setup for multiplayer action or a solo adventure through some of Nintendo's most beloved franchises.

With access to a huge collection of games from NES to Nintendo 64, the room is a time machine that offers a nostalgic trip down memory lane alongside the latest gaming hits.

The gaming experience is complemented by a range of perks designed to keep players fueled and in the zone. Guests can enjoy bottomless popcorn made right in the room, a fridge stocked with an assortment of beverages, and a snack bar featuring gamer favourites. While the popcorn is complimentary, other treats and drinks are available for purchase.

The room's ambience is enhanced by customisable RGB lighting, creating an atmosphere that can be tailored to the mood of the moment. The space can accommodate up to five guests, making it an ideal spot for group gaming sessions or parties.

Sleeping arrangements are flexible, with a king bed that can be split into singles, a sofa bed, and the option for an additional portable bed. The room rate includes two guests, with a nominal additional charge for extra adults, while kids under 12 can stay for free using existing bedding.

For the streaming enthusiast or the business traveller, the high-speed internet and professional-grade streaming gear, including a ring light, ensure a seamless online presence. The PC corner also doubles as a workspace, proving that the room is not just for play but also caters to the practical needs of its guests.

View Melbourne is located at 562 St Kilda Road, a prime location for visitors looking to explore the city or locals seeking a unique staycation. Bookings for this one-of-a-kind gaming room are available through the View Melbourne website, offering a fresh and exciting accommodation option for the gaming community and beyond.
