Pressure by publications like Business Travel News clearly does work. We have been campaigning for the abolition of wi-fi charges by hotels and now one of the largest groups has succumbed. Radisson Blu will point out that it has been offering this service gratis for a number of years.
Accor is to offer free wi-fi in all ibis budget, ibis, ibis Styles, Novotel, Mercure, Pullman and MGallery hotels in the UK, incorporating all bedrooms and public areas. Sofitel already has this facility.
Recent figures revealed that free wi-fi throughout hotels is the most important factor for business travellers when choosing where to stay.
Thomas Dubaere, Managing Director, Accor UK & Ireland, explained: “Free wi-fi has become the norm at many coffee houses or bars but in the past with hotel groups it can vary from property to property, and differ between the public areas to bedrooms.
We recognise that guests expect to have free wi-fi wherever they are in the hotel and for it to be a quick, high quality connection”. www.accor.com
