Getting a free camera to use probably isn’t a perk you look for when booking a vacation hotel, but that’s what Marriott Hotels has begun to offer at a number of their locations. 17 of the chains hotels are now offering guests a complimentary GoPro HERO4 to use during their stay.
Visitors to the Caribbean and Latin America resorts are provided the cameras and encouraged to document their vacations and share them publicly through a new Travel Brilliantly website, where many photos and videos are currently being displayed:
“Next generation travelers are looking for ways to create and share their experiences and Marriott has made it a priority to constantly introduce innovation into our hotels that is engaging and fits their digital lifestyle,” says Craig Smith, the President of the Caribbean and Latin America for the chain.
The company is also planning to curate and share submissions across its network. In addition to the possibility of being featured on Marriott’s website, photos and videos from participants will also be shared on the hotels’ in-room entertainment systems for other guests to view.
