Stream Seamlessly: AirPlay Lands in IHG Hotels & Resorts

Hello, tech-savvy travelers and Apple enthusiasts! Get ready for some exciting news that's sure to enhance your next hotel stay. Apple has just announced a game-changing update for guests at select IHG Hotels & Resorts properties: AirPlay is now available, bringing a whole new level of streaming convenience to your travel experience.

Personalized Entertainment in the Comfort of Your Hotel Room

Whether you're staying at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Hotel Indigo, Candlewood Suites, or InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, you can now enjoy the seamless integration of Apple's AirPlay right in your guest room. This feature kicks off today in more than 60 IHG properties across North America, with plans to expand to more locations in the coming months.

What Does This Mean for You?

AirPlay in IHG hotels allows you to privately and securely stream your favorite shows and movies on Apple TV+ and other popular streaming services directly to the LG hotel TV in your room. But it doesn’t stop there! You can also blast your personal playlists on Apple Music, showcase your vacation photos, practice your big presentation, engage in a little gaming fun on Apple Arcade, or even get in a workout session with Apple Fitness+ — all on the big screen.

Easy and Secure Connection

Connecting is a breeze. Simply scan a unique QR code displayed on your room’s TV screen, and voilà, you’re set to cast almost anything from your iPhone or iPad to the big TV. Planning to travel with friends or family? No worries! Multiple devices can be paired to the TV, making it a perfect feature for everyone in your group to share and enjoy their media.

Privacy Guaranteed

Privacy is a paramount concern, and Apple has addressed this brilliantly. Each QR code is unique to the room, ensuring that whatever you share stays personal and private. Plus, once you check out, your connection to the TV is automatically erased, so there’s no need to worry about the next guest or hotel staff stumbling upon your activity.

Who Can Use This Feature?

AirPlay at IHG properties is available for guests using an iPhone XS or later, running iOS 17.3 or later; or an iPad (6th generation or later), iPad mini (5th generation or later), iPad Air (3rd generation or later), 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation or later), 10.5-inch iPad Pro, or 11-inch iPad Pro (1st generation or later) running iPadOS 17.3 or later.
