MCLEAN, Va. — Hilton and Netflix have teamed up to allow guests staying in Hilton’s Connected Rooms to access their Netflix accounts by logging in with a remote control or the keyboard on the Hilton Honors app.
“We know our guests want to feel connected while travelling, just as they do at home, so we’re giving them seamless access to their favorite Netflix shows, films and specials while on the road,” says Noelle Eder, EVP and Chief Information and Digital Officer for Hilton.
Guests without a Netflix account will be able to sign up on the spot in their room and start watching immediately. The Connected-Room platform ensures a guest’s login information stays secure and clears automatically upon checkout, unless they choose to clear it sooner through the TV.
“This partnership extends our commitment to enabling our members to watch their favorite Netflix series, movies and specials wherever and whenever they want and we’re thrilled to be bringing our service to Hilton guests all over the world,” says Bill Holmes, head of Business Development for Netflix.
Hilton currently offers more than 1,800 Connected Rooms and plans to roll out the technology to hundreds more hotels across the U.S. in 2019, as well as the first non-U.S. locations.
