Techies, rejoice: Staying in Silicon Valley just got even more geek-friendly. Palo Altos 4-star Garden Court Hotel is offering a deluxe experience for the visiting entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and inventors amongst you or for those who just want to pretend to be for a weekend.
For a mere $1,229 (chump change, after your start-up's IPO), book the Geek Chic Package and receive first-class treatment including a stay in a deluxe king room, access to the most high-tech products in the market, an aerial tour of the city, and really a massage for your tired text-messaging thumbs.
Enjoy a $50 credit for a power lunch at an upscale Italian restaurant, then use the hotels custom GPS route offering a day of geekdom saturation, including visits to HP, Google, Apple, and Facebook. Youll also receive a 45-minute aerial tour over Silicon Valley in a 246-foot-long Zeppelin, one of the largest commercial blimps in the world. To top off the tech-filled day, enjoy two complimentary tickets to the Computer History Museum, and receive two free museum t-shirts to fully elevate your geek swagger.
If you have any time left to actually spend in your room, you could use it to play on your in-room iPad 2 (so 2011) but you probably already have the new iPad anyway.
