Hotel Blues No Longer: HD expansion coming to many hotel chains

12-16-08-chiciciconradhotStaying in a hotel room these days can be fun, if you get a nice flat panel HDTV to watch. Sadly though, many of these units are HD capable, but don’t have HD programming being piped into them, at which point having a HD flat panel loses its point. There may be some changes on the way, however, keeping blurry SD shows from being our only option.

USA Today explores the issue, reporting that execs from Marriott, Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza hotels (and Hilton as well) stating their plans to grow and add HD services over the next year or so, with many rollouts expected to be be completed by the end of the year, give or take.

It will certainly make any lonely nights spent on business at a motel a much more pleasurable experience to look forward to.
