Hyatt Hotels and XM Satellite Radio announce a multi-year agreement to provide free XM Satellite Radio service in guestrooms at Hyatt hotels nationwide. Starting this fall, XM and Hyatt will work to deploy service to more than 50,000 Hyatt guest rooms in the continental U.S.
"Hyatt is excited to be at the forefront of in-room entertainment technology," says Matt Adams, vice president of operations for Hyatt Hotels Corporation. "Our customers will have cutting-edge in-room radio technology and more than a hundred music and entertainment channels at their finger tips."
Hyatt is the first hotel chain to offer satellite radio at U.S. properties. Guests will be able to listen to more than 150 digital radio channels of commercial-free music, sports, news, talk and entertainment on custom-designed XM tabletop radios located in each guestroom.
An XM channel guide and promotional information will be available with the radios. Special XM hardware offers for Hyatt's Gold Passport members, the company's frequent guest program, are also included.
