Because business travel has been prevalent for a while, you would think hotels would continue to grow with the times and become more accommodating for the average business traveler.
Wrong!? Instead, hotels have been focusing more on trendiness and their urban appearance, less about comfort and the utility of accessories in the room.? (I think I?ve asked myself, ?how do you turn on this lamp?? too many times to count!) We want quick and easy; none of this fancy complicated stuff.
A critical requirement for a hotel to successfully service business travelers is not just internet access , but consistently fast and efficient connectivity -without endless dropped connections! ?According to iPass? Hospitality Findings Report, 95% of business travelers want an internet connection, and 63% confirm this access with the hotel prior to booking a room.? An article in the Sydney Morning Herald stated that the author would be willing to pay $20 per day for connectivity.
