TiVo Inc., the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), and Morgans Hotel Group Co., announced that they are bringing the luxuries of in-home entertainment to hotels by offering the TiVo service in all rooms throughout Morgans' newest property, the highly anticipated Mondrian in South Beach.

Joe Miller, senior vice president, consumer sales and distribution for TiVo Inc. said, "When traveling, schedules can be unpredictable and television choices in hotels are typically limited, making it far more difficult to watch your favorite programs ... until now. For the first time in any hotel, guests of the new Mondrian in South Beach can enjoy the TiVo service right in their rooms, so they know that after enjoying dinner in Miami their favorite show will be waiting for them when they get back to their rooms."

Mondrian guests will be able to use the Emmy award-winning TiVo user interface to record, pause and rewind live TV, as well as set up recordings of their favorite shows, and even use WishList searches to find programs with their favorite actors or directors. The benefit of the TiVo experience doesn't end there, as guests will have the option of recording two shows at the same time, while watching a third previously recorded show.

"We don't want our guests to have a compromised TV experience when they stay with us. Quite the opposite," said Scott Williams, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Morgans Hotel Group. "Our guests expect innovation from every encounter in our hotels. They love all things digital and TiVo is the coolest, most ground-breaking digital invention of the century and the perfect complement to our guest's TV experience. We're giving our guests cool tools to manage their lifestyle and maximize their experience; no more sacrifices when they travel."

Miller added, "We are thrilled to be working with Morgans on this first-of-its-kind initiative. Morgans has a reputation for providing only the best services and amenities to its guests and TiVo complements this commitment by offering the best, most personalized way to watch television."

The TiVo service will be available to all residents and guests of Mondrian in South Beach when it officially opens on December 1st.
