Most Netflix users will say that their regular viewing routine includes watching shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards as they get settled in for the night. However, what do you do when you're travelling and don't have access to your Netflix account?
A new pop-up hotel in London has just the fix for you. U.K. phone provider Three mobile has partnered with Netflix and Samsung for a unique hospitality experience centered around binge-watching TV shows.

The hotel has 15 suites based in individual pod buildings, according to D'Marge. Each one is themed after a different Netflix show. For example, the Stranger Things suite has cut-out letters strung up above the bed (to help find Will, of course) and the OITNB suite is designed to look like a prison bunker.
The full list includes not only Netflix originals, but popular TV series like Riverdale and Pretty Little Liars.
The available themes are: Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Stranger Things, Gilmore Girls, Riverdale, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Pretty Little Liars, The Crown, Black Mirror, Narcos,The OA, Better Call Saul, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and GLOW.
As far as how guests will be watching, they each receive a Galaxy S8 upon arrival to stream the shows on. There are docks all around the suite, including on the bedside and in front of the toilet to ensure guests never have to stop watching.
As far as food and refreshments, guests receive tokens they can redeem for room service meals and snacks.
On top of all that, the hotel turns more into a pop-up community throughout the day. Group exercise classes are set up, there's bar tent, a music streaming area and a viewing party for the ongoing Wimbeldon.
While its only a limited engagement, maybe this will inspire more entertainment-focused hotels and Netflix pop-up projects.
