Hilton Worldwide bans on-demand porn from bedrooms

Hilton Worldwide has taken the decision to eliminate all on-demand pornography from its in-room entertainment offer.

The new policy will affect all managed and franchised hotels across its global portfolio of 4,440 hotels. There are currently 122 Hilton Worldwide hotels in the UK.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the company said: "We are making immediate changes to our global brand standards to eliminate adult video-on-demand entertainment in all our hotels worldwide. While the vast majority of our properties already do not offer this content today, this content will be phased out of all other hotels subject to the terms of their contracts.

"We believe in offering our guests a high degree of choice and control during their stays with us, including Wi-Fi on personal devices. However, we have listened carefully to our customers and have determined that adult video on-demand entertainment is not in keeping with our company's vision and goals moving forward."

Earlier this year, Hilton Worldwide announced that members of its HHonours loyalty programme would be able to access free Wi-Fi in the bedrooms as well as all public areas for the first time from August.

Hilton Worldwide operates hotels under 12 brands, six which are represented in the UK: Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Hilton Hotels & resorts, Doubletree by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton.
