Free WiFi, Here It Comes


Last Monday, I posted a discussion about WiFi service. I asked: When will full service hotels offer free WiFi service? Today, Marriott International, Inc released an update of its Chicago Marriott Oak Brook Hotel. This property just finished a renovation and started offering complimentary WiFi service in all public areas. How exciting!

U.S.A. Today suggested travelers under economic downturn may seek more “value” in their hotel stays. For example, more travelers choose to stay in hotels that offer free breakfast. Not all full service hotels offer free WiFi yet, but this Chicago property is moving forward. It is no doubt that recession has been pushing hoteliers to package their products with “exceptional value” for travelers.
