LodgeNet Entertainment Corp. said Monday that its "TV GameRoom" video-game service is now available in hotel rooms it serves.

TV GameRoom offers a variety of familiar games that are optimized for television and can be played using LodgeNet’s remote control. Guests pay for a block of time, during which they can play as many games as they wish.

"With TV GameRoom and our Nintendo game service, we have the flexibility to offer in-room game packages aligned with each hotel's specific guest demographics and operational patterns," LodgeNet senior vice president of programming and content management Steven D. Truckenmiller said in a prepared statement.

LodgeNet provides service to nearly 1 million rooms in more than 5,800 hotel properties worldwide.
