Wave goodbye to the days of pay per view movies on tiny TVs and attempting to stream on tablet-sized screens through WiFi connections slower than your grandma’s dial up speeds. Recent studies have shown that hotel guests are increasingly keen to maximize on technology during their hotel stays. Armed with smartphones, tablets and laptops, hotel guests are staying connected and up-to-date — even on their favorite shows. When in possession of multiple screens, the possibilities are endless. Update your Instagram with a flat lay of your room service order while simultaneously streaming Orange is the New Black on your hotel TV. A new era is upon us with an increasing number of hotels partnering with Netflix or updating to smart TVs.
Hotels where you can Netflix and Chill? Sounds like a good vacation to us!
House Of Cards
AC Hotel National Harbor
Washington, DC Area
When has politics ever been so sexy as in Netflix’s critically-acclaimed House of Cards series? While our Netflix and Chill Hotel might be located a bit out of the way from Washington D.C.’s Capitol Building, you’ll find a modern hotel outfitted with everything you need for a House of Cards marathon. The airy and modern rooms are sleek and feature luxurious bedding and dreamy beds for a perfect night in, as well as unlimited free WiFi. A state-of-the-art fitness center welcomes visitors looking to burn off some steam. The best part? As part of the Marriott chain, the hotel has an official partnership with Netflix — meaning you can stream your favorite political-drama on the in-room TV without the fuss of having to set it up yourself.
Christopher Place Resort
Perhaps you’ve been inspired by Netflix hit documentary series Chef’s Table to appreciate food on a deeper level than “get in my belly, I’m hungry!” While Chef Karen Valentine at Christopher Place Resort in the Great Smoky Mountains has not yet been featured on the show, a weekend of incredible meals paired with TV access to Netflix spells a weekend of foodie romance for us. Rooms come with large flat screen TVs, complete with Netflix, four-poster beds, wood burning fireplaces and plush, downy robes. A multi-course breakfast is included in your stay, starting with homemade pastries and fruit, followed by a classic Eggs Benny or if you’re feeling sweet, homemade Belgian waffles. The real showstopper here (besides the Netflix TV of course) is the onsite Mountain View Restaurant. Make reservations and prepare to be delighted by the four-course set menu, skillfully prepared by Karen herself. Following the showstopper of a meal, head upstairs to vegetate on what could be the best meal of your life so far!
Roseledge Country Inn
Fans of Gilmore Girls were overjoyed (to put it lightly) when Netflix announced they would air a final season of the show as a Netflix Original Series. The show is set in a fictional small town in Connecticut which sees Lorelei eventually running her own inn. Relive the spirit of the show at the Roseledge Country Inn, fully immersing yourself in the charm of small town New England living, coupled with the series premiere slated for sometime in November 2016 — if we’re lucky! The Roseledge Country Inn is filled with rustic antique furnishings (we can dream that they were purchased from Mrs. Kim’s antique shop) and fresh flowers. In the communal spirit of Stars Hollow, the Inn rooms don’t have their own TVs, but rather you can join other guests and Inn owner Gail for an evening of Netflix and Chill in the common room. Should you rather enjoy spending time in the comfortable four-poster beds in privacy, the complimentary WiFi is more than suited to stream bedside.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Hotel BPM Brooklyn
New York, NY
Fans of Netflix Original Series character Kimmy Schmidt love her colorful clothes and optimistic outlook. Filmed in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, Kimmy evokes the youthful and funky spirit of New York’s hippest borough. If you’re searching for a Brooklyn hotel with Netflix, Hotel BPM Brooklyn is calling your name. This unique music and lifestyle hotel is as colorful as the life Kimmy has created in her new home and budding with the modern upgrades like coffee makers and internet to which Kimmy was just recently introduced. Curl up in the custom “Sound Sleeper” beds and turn on the Smart TV, fully outfitted with Netflix to catch the show or watch a movie. Wake up in the morning, slap on that Kimmy smile before jumping into the luxurious rainfall shower (we bet Kimmy would be thrilled!) before heading down to your complimentary breakfast- life is good!
Grace and Frankie
San Diego Marriott Del Mar
San Diego, CA
Seeking an escape from the dregs of day to day life? So were Grace and Frankie, stars of the eponymous Netflix sitcom who retreated, the most unlikely of friends, to a San Diego beach house. Whether you come with your own best frenemy or with someone you love (even if it’s just yourself!) a Netflix marathon could be in the works as you indulge in room service. The San Diego Marriot Del Mar is outfitted with smart TVs complete with push button access to all your favorite Netflix shows. You’re a wander away from the beach and the historic Del Mar downtown’s shopping and dining — not that you’d want to leave the comfort of your plush room!
The New York EDITION
New York, NY
Slink into the sexy Edition Hotel in New York City for a weekend of Netflix binge watching and crime fighting from your secluded vantage point high above the city. Embrace the spirit of the flawed Hell’s Kitchen humanistic hero Matt Murdock, better known as Daredevil around these parts from this New York landmark building, bordering on Daredevil’s own neighborhood. Your room comes equipped with a flat screen, high definition TV, complete with easy access to Netflix and BEATS Bluetooth speakers in every room, creating the perfect atmosphere to curl up with a faux fur throw and settle in for a night with Daredevil.
Park Hyatt New York
New York, NY
Edgy, sarcastic and equal parts sexy, former superhero turned detective Jessica Jones makes her home in Hell’s Kitchen in the titular Netflix original series bearing her name. Equally sexy is the Park Hyatt Hotel in New York — bordering on her gritty neighborhood, the hotel creates the perfect atmosphere from which to enjoy a dedicated Jessica Jones Netflix marathon. The high-glamour hotel is a throwback to quintessential New York, of which Hell’s Kitchen was a big part. Sumptuously chic and spacious rooms offer up no incentive to leave, complete with that delicious remote bearing the red Netflix button and linens begging you to remain for a just a few more episodes. Call down for room service and let yourself indulge in the ultimate Netflix hotel experience.
Dark and densely layered secrets of the Rayburn family of Netflix’s Bloodline series certainly don’t match the sun, sparkling waters and easy going attitude of the Florida Keys where oftentimes not everything is the way it seems. The Courtyard Marathon Florida Keys however, delivers on everything quintessentially Florida Keys: balconies overlooking the azure waters of the Bay and an outdoor swimming pool to make sure you maximize on sun. In case you forget your sunscreen however or are seeking some of the mystery of Bloodline, retreat to your spacious room, flick on the remote and indulge in a little Netflix action right on the Smart TV.
