Overall, 91% of European business traveler respondents from Europe consider ‘Wi-Fi Technology’ as a key technological feature they look for when selecting a hotel.
  • 5. It has been revealed that 84% of European business travelers look for hotels which provide ‘high-speed internet’. Hotels are investing in high-speed internet services as demand for these services is rising due to increased use of smartphones, tablets and laptops among business travelers. Hotels which already provide these services are also renewing their agreements with internet service providers to improve services. In September 2012, UK-based hotel group Queens Moat Houses (QMH) announced that it had renewed its agreement with Swisscom Hospitality Services to provide wired and wireless high-speed internet access, and conference and business center services at all QMH locations for three years A C-Level executive at QMH stated: “High-speed internet access is an essential pillar in our service offering today. For that pillar we need a solid partner.” ‘Flat-screen televisions’ are a major amenity that European business travelers expect in their choice of hotels, and hotels are providing the best in modern technology to satisfy guests. In April 2013, UK property investment company Criterion Capital selected an online collaborations platform by Aconex to develop the London trocadero pod-style hotel. The new development includes upgrading the existing complex with 583 modular lodging pods. Each pod will feature double beds, 42-inch plasma-screen TVs, secured WiFi access, lighting and temperature controls. ‘Electronic keys’ and ‘full-service business centers’ are other important technology features that business travelers prefer in their choice of hotels. As a result, hotels are in the process of constant enhancements in their services to ensure guests’ safety. View Report
