JW Marriott Hotel & Resorts (Marriott) and DJI, one of the world’s largest drone makers, have partnered up to launch the hotel chain’s first Drone Experience Program; a program which will provide guests with the opportunity to test drive DJI’s innovative drone technology. Marriott guests will use a DJI drone to view the Marriott’s properties, with DJI onsite providing training and information on safe operations of the drones. The program is approximately 30 minutes and will be held on Saturdays. Marriott guests can reserve a spot in the program with the hotel concierge.

The first offering of this type occurred on November 12, 2016, at the Marriott Zhenjiang Anji. This particular Marriott was chosen due to the hotel’s close proximity to China’s Bamboo Forest. The goal of this interesting partnership is to offer hotel guests the opportunity to see the locations they have traveled to through some new, unique perspectives.
