Marriott to put high-def television in hotel rooms

Marriott figures there is enough of a demand for high-definition television to install sets in all of its U.S. and Canadian resorts.

The installation will be completed within three years, the company says. Marriott, JW Marriott and Renaissance hotels will be the first to get the newest technology

The 32-inch sets will have plug-in panels that allow guests to connect laptops, digital cameras, camcorders and video games. They will also have 25 watt speaker systems, with no headphones required, for better sound from MP3 players and iPods.

"The new HDTV and connectivity panel can multitask so business travelers can be more productive on the road," Bethesda, Md.-based Marriott International says in a statement. "For example, the screen can be split so guests can watch TV while checking e-mail or researching on the Internet. Or they can relieve stress playing a video game while listening to an iPod at the same time."

By the end of this year Marriott (NYSE: MAR) says it will have the new units installed in 25 percent, or 40,000, of its JW Marriott, Marriott and Renaissance guest rooms in the U.S. and Canada. Sets will be in the rest of the rooms in those brands by the end of 2009.

Among the company's other brands are the Courtyard, Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn and SpringHill Suites, among others. The company has 20 hotels in Wake, Durham and Orange counties.
