Business travelers who subscribe to Netflix will soon be able to use the streaming entertainment service through the Internet-connected TVs in guest rooms at Marriott Hotels.
By using the Netflix app on the TV screen, guests can access their own Netflix accounts or subscribe to the service, the hotel company said in an announcement this week.
The new Netflix offering is currently available at the New York Marriott East Side, San Jose Marriott, Princeton Marriott, Newport (R.I.) Marriott, Dallas/Ft. Worth Marriott Solana and the Bethesda (Md.) Marriott Suites.
It will soon be available at the Marriott Marquis Washington D.C., San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Dayton Marriott, San Juan Marriott Resort and the Anaheim Marriott, the company said.
Netflix should be available at 100 Marriott Hotels by the end of this year, and at all of its 300 U.S. properties by the end of 2016.
“While the introduction of Netflix is currently focused on the Marriott Hotels brand, the service is also available in over two dozen U.S. hotels representing other Marriott International brands. The company will expand Netflix to its other brands in the future,” a spokesman said.
