Parts of the Monterey Bay Aquarium will be set up at a San Francisco hotel.

Fans of the Monterey Bay Aquarium can visit their favorite sea creatures in the lobby of a San Francisco hotel this summer.
   
The Hyatt Regency San Francisco at 5 Embarcadero Center has teamed up with the aquarium to create an underwater experience in the hotel's 42,000-square foot lobby, hotel officials said.

Oversized images on the walls, windows and elevator doors will bring to life some of the aquarium's ocean life.

Starting Friday, hotel visitors can also experience a virtual game that lets participants create a scuba avatar that can virtually swim with sea creatures.

The Virtual Aquarium Dive Adventure, which uses smart phone and mobile application technology, runs through Sunday.

The lobby displays will be in place through August.
