Australia's Mantra Group was credited with launching the world's first Pokemon Go friendly hotels shortly after the augmented reality game was launched last month. However, in the days and weeks since the game was rolled out and became an instant phenomenon, several other hotels have begun to embrace Pokemon Go.
Here are four of the most unique cases.
Historic Hotel Full of PokeStops
California's iconic Hotel del Coronado is known for its shops, bars and restaurants.
But more importantly for Pokemon Go players, the historic hotel is home to more than half of a dozen PokeStops. So whether you're just passing through Coronado or staying a few nights, be sure to hit all seven before you move on.
I've caught 7 new Pokémon so far and I'm now level 12. Seems like the @delcoronado is a great place to play Pokémon Go.— Laura Neuzeth (@LauraNeuzeth) July 25, 2016
Catch 'Em All in Orlando
Now through December 25, 2016, Pokemon fans visiting the Theme Park Capital of the World can take advantage of the Orlando World Center Marriott's "Catch 'Em All Escape" package.
Starting at $214 per night, guests can use the promo code "HO9" to secure a pair of Pikachu-inspired Pineapple cocktails from the hotel's Falls Pool Bar & Grill, free PokeParking and a $25 daily resort credit.
What's more, the hotel features 10 PokeStops and the lobby conveniently serves as a PokeGym.

"From our Lego Man statue and Orlando Dragonfly sculpture to the grand water fountain in the entrance, our resort is popping with several 'PokeStops,'" said the property's director of sales and marketing Gary Dybul in a statement. "But the ultimate sight to see is players 'battling' and training while simultaneously checking into the property, as our lobby doubles as a Pokemon gym."
Poke Around Baltimore
Charm City's Hampton Inn & Suites Baltimore Inner Harbor has rolled out the "Poke Around Baltimore" package amid this summer's biggest craze.
Highlights of the package include a walking map of the city as well as a trainer grab bag with treats that players can use to lure Pokemon as they make their way through Baltimore. Guests will also receive personal tips from the hotel's trainers.
The special package is available now through the end of the year.
Pokemon Power Hours in the Bay Area
Hotel Nikko San Francisco is yet another hotel embracing the explosion of Pokemon Go. The hotel's Kanpai Lounge is now a PokeStop that hosts Pokemon Power Hours from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays.
Here, players can catch their favorite creatures while they sip on a Pokemon-themed beverage like the Pokemon Punch.
