The recently opened Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs, a luxury 163-room resort located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, has equipped all rooms with complimentary Nexus and Google Chromecast. tablets The Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs is offering guests free tablets to stream movies and television shows without them incurring any additional hotel fees.
“We’re excited to be one of the first hotels to offer this modern technology to guests,” said Andy Carpiac, majority owner of the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs. “With today’s streaming options, paying $15.99 to watch a movie in your room seems antiquated and unfair. A more consumer-friendly approach makes sense and the Google system we provide for free is one of the best and most user-friendly options available. We think guests are going to really appreciate the innovative new approach.”
The new systems include a bedside tablet that syncs to the room’s 42-inch flat screen television. By logging in to subscription based services such as Netflix, guests can stream viewing content to their room’s TV for free. The new entertainment systems are already installed in the majority of pool view rooms and suites, with complete roll-out anticipated by the end July.
“The City of Palm Springs is thrilled that the Hard Rock Hotel is utilizing this technology to offer visitors this consumer-friendly way to watch content in their hotel rooms,” said Mayor Steve Pougnet. “I commend Andy and his team for bringing this forward thinking entertainment option to the Hard Rock Hotel and to Palm Springs and I would not be surprised if other hotel chains followed suit because it just makes good business sense and it’s great for our visitors.”
