Marriott Hotels adds NetFlix access to guest rooms

Marriott Hotels has partnered with NetFlix to offer on-demand access for guests who can use the NetFlix app to log into their accounts or subscribe to NetFlix from the hotel room. The program is currently available in six hotels, with six more hotels plan to go online soon. NetFlix programming applies specifically to the Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand.

NetFlix is currently available at these six Marriott Hotels:

  • New York Marriott East Side
  • San Jose Marriott
  • Princeton Marriott
  • Newport Marriott
  • Dallas/Fort Worth Marriott Solana
  • Bethesda Marriott Suites

NetFlix will be available next at these six Marriott Hotels:

  • Marriott Marquis Washington, DC
  • San Francisco Marriott Marquis
  • Atlanta Marriott Marquis
  • Dayton Marriott
  • San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino
  • Anaheim Marriott

Around 100 Marriott Hotels in the USA are expected to be online  with NetFlix programming by year-end 2015 and by the end of 2016 all Marriott Hotels in the USA, more than 300 properties, are expected to offer the service.

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.

Marriott Hotels designed and adapted its Netflix app for the hotel environment. Guests staying multiple days only have to login to their accounts once throughout their stay. When guests checkout all account information is automatically wiped clean from the televisions.
