New York City is the best place for Pokemon Go players looking for top-notch “Poketels," or hotels closest to the most PokeStops and PokeGyms, according to research from Hotels.com.

Hotels.com found the hotels with the most Pokestops and Pokegyms within or nearby the hotel, and nine of 10 were in New York. The top was the Towers at Lotte New York Palace, which has 11 Pokestops and/or Pokegyms within 500 feet of the hotel, and 231 more within 1.25 miles.

San Francisco was the only other city with a hotel breaching the top 10, with the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco claiming spot No. 9 with eight stops/gyms within 500 feet, and 103 more within 1.25 miles.

The other New York hotels making the list, in order, were Apartment 804, St. Regis New York, Broome NYC, Peninsula New York, Baccarat Hotel and Residences New York, Renaissance New York Midtown, Library Hotel and NoMad Hotel.

Hotels.com also did a survey of more than 500 millennial travelers in the U.S. The survey found 79% are playing Pokemon Go, and 48% would consider visiting a new location because of the game.
