Hyatt to offer in-room streaming entertainment worldwide

Keeping up with trends and technologies is something that many hotels choose to do. Travelers want these features, and having them available means more travelers choosing their hotel brand. To appease more customers with grand appeal, Hyatt hotels are now offering a new feature for their customers. This is in-room streaming entertainment service that gives travelers the option to stream movies, tv shows, music, and more at the push of a button. Currently available at 14 Hyatt hotels but with plans to expand worldwide, guests can log into streaming services such at Netflix with their own account and continue watching where they left off at home.

I have two pieces of advice regarding this service:

  • Don’t forget to log out when you leave.
  • If you are travelling outside of your home country (where your streaming subscription is based), you may not be able to find some programs, as availability differs by market.
