VR Vacation at Marriott

Marriott Wants You to Take a VR Vacation in its Hotel Rooms

Timothy J. Seppala | September 10, 2015

You've just checked into your hotel after an all-day marathon of running across airports to avoid missing connections; eaten a ton of crappy, overpriced airport food because you missed a connection; are dead tired and just want to go to sleep. But maybe after your travel nap you want to see something new without putting pants on and leaving your room. Well, if you've checked into certain Marriott Hotel locations you can summon a Samsung Gear VR for 24 hours of your stay and do just that with a new pilot program. It's called VRoom Service (get it?) and is a joint deal between the Korean tech juggernaut and the hotelier. The draw here is what the pair are calling "VR Postcards" which is a fancy way of describing video experiences wherein people talk about their feelings regarding travel, according to Fortune.
