Marriott Abandons FCC Petition for Hotel Wi-Fi Blocking

The Marriott Hotel Chain has officially thrown in the towel in its efforts to block guests from using anything but Marriott’s proprietary and expensive Wi-Fi systems. Marriott executives explained that their sole intent was to protect the privacy of its customers. That must explain why the wireless network charge was so overpriced. big grin

As we have said, we will not block Wi-Fi signals at any hotel we manage for any reason. And, as of January 15, we provide free Wi-Fi to all members of our Marriott Rewards program who book directly with us.
