Hotel guests will be able to stream Netflix via a new TV platform powered by a set-top box.
Six Marriott properties will launch the service first, including New York Marriott East Side, San Jose (Calif.) Marriott, Princeton (N.J.) Marriott, Newport (R.I.) Marriott, Dallas/Fort Worth Marriott Solana and Bethesda (Md.) Marriott Suites, with another six scheduled to offer it later this summer, including San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Dayton (Ohio) Marriott, San Juan (P.R.) Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, Anaheim (Calif.) Marriott and Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C.
Marriott said it will roll out the Netflix service to a total of 100 properties by the end of this year and another 300 by the end of 2016.
