We’ve all stayed at a hotel with a Nintendo 64 in the room, even seeing them at hotels within the past few weeks. One hotel chain is finally getting with the times, as Marriott International will soon debut a pilot program that puts customized Nintendo Wii consoles in-room, as well as including access to 20 Wii games, including Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, Wii Sports and Wii Fit.
Marriott International is placing new specially built Wii consoles in select guest rooms and lounges at six Marriott and Renaissance properties: New York Marriott Marquis, Renaissance New York Hotel Times Square, Boston Marriott Cambridge, Bethesda (Md.) Marriott Suites, Annapolis (Md.) Marriott Waterfront, JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, Phoenix (Lounge only).
The new Wii hotel game system allows guests to select from a library of games without inserting game discs. Using the Wii Remote and a new games menu, guests can just point the Wii Remote at a game and begin playing immediately. New Wii games will be added to the menu as they become available.
The Wii guest room packages include unlimited Wii access for the entire stay. There is a small premium for a room with a Wii hotel game system over the standard guest room rate.
To book a Wii guest room package at these six hotels, go to Mariott’s Web site, select your preferred hotel, then click on the “Deals at this Hotel” link or insert promotional code XY0 (zero).
