Playing Pokémon Go on the road? A website can help with rooms

For travelers seeking to score some out-of-town Pokémon with the popular Pokémon Go game, the search engine Alltherooms.com has added a PokéView filter. Though the Pokémon critters tend to move around, using the filter during a room search shows the number of Pokémon within a radius of about 500 feet at the time of the search, specifying the type and number of Pokémon in that range. The website, which aims to function like the Google of accommodations searches, compiling all rooms available in a location from Couchsurfing and Airbnb accommodations to hotels and houseboats, also notes the proximity of stationary Poke “gyms” and “Poké stops,” places where players may spend more time.
While Pokémon players have annoyed some Poké stop neighbors, a number of hotels have embraced their transient game-playing visitors. The historicHotel Del Coronado near San Diego is home to seven Poké stops, thePeninsula Tokyo has two Poké stops including one at its 24th-floor restaurant and the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco has a Poké stop in its Kanpai Lounge, offering a Pokémon happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. daily with $5 cocktails.
