Curious about Google Glass but didn’t want to pony up $1,500? A San Francisco hotel is going to let travelers give it a try as part of a package.

Stanford Court is offering a Google Glass Explorer Package that lets guests try out Google Glass. For $199 a night, for stays from May 12 through the end of the year. 

The package includes one set of Google Glass with a stay in deluxe king or queen room, breakfast in the hotel’s cafe and two nightcaps in the Aurea Lounge.

Google Glass is essentially a computer that is worn like eyeglasses. A tiny computer screen is positioned above and to the side of your field of vision.  Glass works with smartphone-type apps and has a built-in camera to help you capture moments without having to take a camera.  You can tap its touchpad or say: “Glass, take a photo” as you explore San Francisco.


Guests can earn a complimentary appetizer by snapping three photos of San Francisco icons with Google Glass and posting them on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag: #stanfordcourtsf.

Although the hotel has 393 rooms, the deal is limited to two packages per day because the hotel has only two sets of the glasses.  (More may be available by mid-June.) 

Guests will receive a tutorial at check-in and may use the device throughout their stay.

The deal requires 24-hours notice for cancellations.
