Marriott Grand Château in Reno--- doesn't have it now, but it looks like it's wired for same. DIRECTV® there had ESPN, HBO, and one or two other premium movie channels. At least is was full HD!

I would hope there would be one where overnight guests to HQ could stay. Certainly wouldn't want then to suffer through cable...

:) For this specific feature (the DVR functionality)... I know of it at the HGI.

But in the last 4 years, there have only been a couple hotels I have been at, that were not powered by DIRECTV. (Both personal and travel).

It is funny when you walk into the room, and you see the remote, or the moment the TV turns on, and you know it is DIRECTV.

Have Directv at the Hampton Inn in Moab, Ut.

Though it does not have the DVR functionality, having a known guide and channels is a big plus.

The remote is the RC50. No color buttons but the remote has all the DVR buttons.

Menu is limited to Search and Settings & Help.
In Search, there are Titles, People, Channels, & Keywords.
In Settings & Help, there are CC, Audio Language, Parental Controls, & Help

DirecTv, you keep using this word "Everywhere."
I do not think it means what you think it means.

The Home 2 Suites in Columbus, GA has DirecTV receivers in each room. They don't have DVR functionality though. It's nice having HD in a hotel for the channels I watch. It's rather depressing at most hotels when they have nice TVs fed by crappy analog cable. Some of them may have the local and if lucky a couple of cable networks in HD.
