Marriott Makes Newspapers Optional

If you want a newspaper when you stay at a Marriott you’ll have to ask for it to be delivered (at Marriott, JW Marriott and Renaissance properties) or pick one up in the lobby (at Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, and TownePlace Suites properties).

The end of automatic newspaper delivery in hotels — other chains are likely to follow suit — will hit USA Today and the Wall Street Journal particularly hard. If you want to know more, the Boston Herald did some reporting beyond the Marriott press release to put some context into the story.

Of course, when the newspapers are all gone, all you’ll get is the press release. Oh, and maybe a few blog entries linking to the press release.
