No Adult Movies In Marriott Hotels - Inappropriate Without Room Safeguards

No Adult Movies In Marriott Hotels - No safeguards? No more adult movies allowed in Marriott Hotels, a move that will go on for several years. It's a corporate decision as the company brings in new entertainment technology.

The decision to go adult movie free comes after years of discussing whether the availability of lucrative adult films in guest rooms is appropriate and whether safeguards exist to prevent children from seeing it.

Marriott, though, links the move to a pending shift to new in-room entertainment technology for its new hotels. Traditional video systems — which included access to adult content displayed in the menu selection — will be replaced by Internet-based video-on-demand systems. Hotels have seen revenue from providing pay-per-view movies in rooms shrink, as business travelers increasingly check in to hotels with their own sources of entertainment, such as Netflix DVDs, a laptop, an iPod Touch or a Slingbox.

Marriott Hotels & Resorts is the corporate flagship brand of full service hotels and resorts. The company, based in Washington D.C., is repeatedly included on the Forbes Best Companies to Work for list. In addition, it was voted the 4th best company to work for in the UK by The Times in 2009.
