If you have a Pandora, Netflix, or Hulu accounts, you will be able to watch them on your Marriott guest room TVs.

"The hotelier is conducting a pilot program at eight hotels in the United States. Guests will be able to log into an individual account and stream content directly to the television in the room."

1) Is this currently (May 2017) STILL a Marriott policy?
2) Can you provide a link to, or the source documentation for, this policy?

I ask because I've lived in an extended stay Marriott property for 3+ years, and have never been able to get my Roku (or any of the services you mention above) connected to stream through my unit's TV. A techie friend and 2 hotel employees have tried - total time by all has to be over 6 hours - and it doesn't seem possible. If it should be possible, I need to know how to pursue this issue.

@Dulcinea16 this thread is now over 27 Months old and the "Original Poster" is long gone and no one is responding anymore. When posting you may want to look at when the last post was or when the OP posted last, if it's more than 2 Weeks then the OP is long gone and not coming back. If you are having a current issue we can assist you with please start a new thread so we can help.

PS welcome to the forum!

Steve's info says it's a pilot program at 8 hotels. You might not have stayed at one of the eight.

It was a pilot program, but I missed this post first time around. We are travelling right now, it's raining, so we decided to have a little in-room picnic for dinner. How I would love to watch something good instead of the drivel that TV rolls out at this time of the evening.

I would think that some sophisticated tech goodies would have to be implemented for a guest to watch their stuff on a guest room TV. Glad this post came up again ... anyone have any intel on the pilot project?
