EMI, Fairmont to Bow Hotel Music Store12 Mar, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Major record label EMI Music March 12 said starting this spring it would bow an online music store with luxury hotel chain Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
The Fairmont Music Store would allow hotel guests to stream, download and create custom play lists of songs and concerts from EMI's extensive catalog to MP3 players and other portable devices.
EMI artists include Coldplay, Norah Jones, Keith Urban, Anne Murray and Lenny Kravitz, among others.
With 55 hotels and resorts worldwide, Toronto-based Fairmont last year began offering EMI content via digital music players to guests frequenting the hotel's fitness center.
