Everyone knows that one of the dirtiest things in the hotel room is the TV remote. The remote is used over and over again by each guest, but rarely ever cleaned. Well, there’s finally a great solution allowing you to use the TV in your room, without every having to touch the remote. LodgeNet interactive (who provides software for 95% of hotel room TVs), has released an app for iOS and Android called STAYConnect, which allows you to control your TV directly from your mobile device. We are talking power on/off, volume control, channel changing, in-room/on-demand movie purchases, room service, and more.
Next time you hit the road, bring along the travel app designed to make your hotel stay even better! With STAYConnect, you can turn your mobile device into a fully-functioning remote control for your hotel TV. STAYConnect works in over 630,000 hotel rooms across the U.S. including many popular brands such as Hilton, Embassy Suites, Doubletree, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites, Sheraton, W Hotels, Westin, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Courtyard, Fairmont, Omni, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Joie de Vivre, Kimpton, Loews, and many more.
