Hyatt Hotels and XM Satellite Radio have inked a multi-year agreement to provide XM Satellite Radio service free-of-charge 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 the first hotel chain to offer complimentary satellite radio at properties across the continental U.S. Hyatt guests will be able to listen to XM’s 150-plus digital radio channels of commercial-free music and premier 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.
Included in the launch will be special XM hardware offers for Hyatt’s Gold Passport members, the company’s frequent guest program.
