A San Francisco Hotel is Offering a Google Glass Explorer Package

The Stanford Court Hotel in the Nob Hill district of San Francisco is offering a Google Glass Explorer Package. The Google Glass Explorer package includes a one night stay where guests will be given a tutorial on how to use the gadget. The tutorial will include tips on how to avoid being a “glasshole” among other things. Guests will also be able to compete with each other to see who can take the best of pictures of San Francisco and upload them to their social networks using Google Glass.


The Google Glass package at the hotel starts at $199 a night. People who decide to get the Google Glass package will get an overnight stay in a deluxe room, one Google Glass device to use, complimentary breakfast for two, and two nightly beverages. It’s a decent deal if you are curious about Google Glass, but don’t want to shove out $1500. Really though, it’s not overly surprising for this hotel to offer this.

If you don’t remember, this is the same hotel who offered free drinks to Explorers who already owned Google Glass in March. They decided to do the free drinks thing after an incident with an Explorer happened in a bar. A debate was sparked that week about Google Glass and bars, and they wanted to show that Explorers wearing their Google Glass at a bar isn’t a big deal.

Also, other hotels are offering a similar package. The ACME Hotel in Chicago offers Google Glass rentals to guests. The ACME Hotel does it a bit different though, with you only being able to rent it out for three hours.

Definitely a great package and a great time to start offering it. Google Glass is in open beta now so a LOT of people are probably considering getting it. This package will allow people, who are near or will be near the hotel, to try it out before buying it. The only thing I’m curious about is if they give you a random set, or if they have various colors that you can choose from.
