"Adult" Movies at Marriott

Love Marriott.  Best hotel chain in the world.  I'm platinum with them.  Only one gripe, though.  Offering "adult" movies is tacky.  I know I can have it turned off.  I don't watch it anyhow.  But don't like to think that my favorite hotel chain offers that slime.

Maybe if enough of us speak up, "adult movies" will go the way of smoking at Marriott.

    While attending my MBA program at Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University. this topic came up in our ethics class.  We had a mix of feelings, but it came down to offering services requested by the customers. No nned to watch and you can restrict viewing if you have youngsters with you.

    Entertainment content offerings vary across the Marriott portfolio, actually.  For example, at Marriott Vacation Club resorts which offer 1, 2 and 3 bedroom villas intended for famililes, DirecTV is the 'brand' standard in the US.  Since the villas are owned on a timeshare basis, the Condominium Owners Association (COA) or Home Owners Association (HOA) board of directors determine what package of channels their resort will subscribe to.  I am not aware of any MVCI resort that subscribes to adult content.  

     

    In the commercial hotel environment, the adult offering is just that.  It's not up to Marriott to censor content, this is the right of individuals and parents.

    Agree with that post entirely, but folks will tell you that it is a cash cow for them.  Providers will tell you that it is their first amendment right to show these for money, and that they have a way to block access for minors and others offended.

     

    Nonetheless, seems that there  must be a group within this forum who find the whole mess tacky and not-necessary.

      Hi  Everyone. Been a few weeks. Anyway, just as at home, or wherever you choose to go, I think you should have a right of full choice, as long as children and that sort of business is not involved. I do not think it is "tacky", as if I utilized it, and trust me I would state, but as of the last 20 years + do not, is an indi

       

      vidual decision, which I am sure they charge you a small fortune for the "privledge", but anyway, you can acess it just about anywhere, so who cares if Marriott grants access?  Just more expensive, and I guess if that is your thing, at least you can put it on your folio and get Marriott points for it...who really cares unless you are going to utilize it. The other chains offer it. Oh boy. Please do not take this as sarcasam, anyone, as I am not in the best mood tonite, 12 hour day with zero in 24, all work related. Hope everyone is doing well. Want to talk about strange, comma, wierd, , etc., etc., stuff, did anybody get this (Sorry, I have not been around for a few weeks, so I am going to copy as sent, sorry if this issue has been brought up:

        Welcome back!  So this is what she wanted and I just deleted her e-mail.  I could have given her by bank account number so they could put millions of dollars in to.  I guess I missed out!

          Thank you very much for the "greetings!" Hope you are doing well!~Heck, we all know she is one of the Nigerian rip-off artists we have seen before (I know I have!). Strange that she was able to penetrate this boundry, as that is where it eminatted from. Not worried about the future on it. Sorry if there are misspellings. Tired, and not the kind of guy who utilizes spell checker.

           

          Thanks for the greeting back! Makes me feel welcome! Hope you and your loved ones are well, and hope to converse soon! Are you going to send me special pictures too! LOL!

        Hi Al, lots of Marriott Insiders heard from this person.  You are the first person that reported another contact as far as I know.  The CM was made aware of the situation and the person's account was disabled.

        I am not aware that anyone can access your e-mail from this site. It is not a viewable item from what I understand the rule to be. If someone got your e-mail from this Insiders site, there is a BIG problem.

          I agree!  The problem is that we cannot see just what others see.  After the incident, I removed everything but I still see some and have no way to know what others see.

            I just looked at your profile and there is no information at all on your profile page. I guarantee that you will not see my e-mail if you visit my profile. I can see my e-mail on my profile but nobody else can. Marriott wouldn't allow it even if you could ask for it to be seen. This is not that type of site. That's why they have the 'private message' arrangement. What you can see on your page when you look at it is your private info that nobody else has access to.
