    Does anyone know if a Fire stick will work with the TVs in the Palazzo rooms?

    They will generally work with the TV but not with the wifi that hotels provide. I have no specific experience with Palazzo, just hotels in general.

    I can't speak specifically to Palazzo, but your best bet is probably to grab a USB-->HDMI cable from Monoprice or whatever for $10-ish. Much easier than messing around with one of the media sticks.

    I’ve tried a Aria and Cosmo and it didn’t work for me there so I wouldn’t hold out much hope :lock:

    One way around the wifi problem is to get a travel router. They can be as cheap as $30 on Amazon and are useful for other things like sharing a paid connection with extra devices. You would use your phone to log in with the hotel's sign in page.

    Or, if your phone supports sharing a wifi network, that can work too. I know it's not possible on iPhones but some Samsungs and maybe other Androids support sharing a wifi network (without using mobile data).

    Yea... getting the wifi working right is often a challenge.

    We download lots of shows to ipad and then run a cable to the tv to avoid those issues, and slow wifi.

    I might also use the hotspot off my phone instead of the hotel wifi.

    Works mostly great once you get it logged in. I think it took two or three tries for it to take. I think all streaming services worked except Hulu because of the VPN Palazzo is running.

    Also had no issues plugging in the stick directly to tv.

    Side note for those that mentioned Cosmo. I've had zero fire stick issues there. In fact it's been the easiest place I've found to use as they have an easy to access HDMI input in the wall below the tv. Wifi is automatic too.
