In a lodging industry first, Marriott International is piloting a new specially built Wii hotel game system from Nintendo in select guest rooms and lounges, offering guests a choice of 20 games, including the popular Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, and Wii Sports as well as Nintendo fitness game, Wii Fit.

The Wii experience is just beginning for Marriott and Renaissance guests, who can now choose from 20 games, including the popular Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, and Wii Sports as well as the Wii Fit fitness game. In a lodging industry first, Marriott International, Inc. is piloting a new specially built Wii hotel game system from Nintendo in select guest rooms and lounges.

Wii systems are available 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)

Wii has been a hit with every age group. The intuitive, motion-sensitive controls of the Wii Remote controller make the games easy to play, whether alone or in groups, making it an excellent fit for hotels and their guests. With Wii Fit, guests can even burn calories while having fun, all in the comfort of their hotel rooms.

The new Wii hotel game system allows hotel guests to select from a library of games without inserting game discs. With the intuitive games menu, guests can just point the Wii Remote at a game and begin playing immediately. Popular 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. To book a Wii guest room package at these six hotels, subject to availability, please go to www.marriott.com, select your preferred hotel, then click on the “Deals at this Hotel” link or insert promotional code XY0 (zero). There is a small premium for a room with a Wii hotel game system over the standard guest room rate.
