Marriott Hotels is partnering with TED, the organization devoted to spreading worthwhile ideas, so that guests staying at any of its hotels can get inspired.
The partnership means that anyone staying at a Marriott will soon find himself or herself surrounded by TED content, from quotes and blogs to recordings of famous TED talks.
“We know that travelers today look for more in a hotel and we are bringing to life new innovations that help elevate guests’ stay to memorable experiences,” said Matthew Carroll, Vice President and Global Brand Manager of Marriott Hotels. “TED content does not only entertain, but educates and engages on topics that are relevant to our guests.”
As well as direct access to curated TED content via in-room entertainment or the hotel’s wi-fi, Marriot will be hosting live TED events in Seattle, London, Dubai, Bangkok and Santiago, starting this fall.
