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
