The importance of reliable WiFi
As you will know hundreds of residents will check in to your hotel daily expecting to enjoy their stay, whether it’s for business or leisure purposes, and also have the ability to connect to the internet via a reliable WiFi connection. Let’s face it, who wants to stay in a hotel without solid connectivity to the internet? I know I certainly wouldn’t, as problems with hotel WiFi are common negatives on hotel reviews online.
Many surveys of Hotel residents highlight that in room WiFi is a vital component in their stay, with some even stating “Access to WiFi in my room is more important than the actual hotel location, parking facilities and complimentary breakfast”.
Would it harm our hotel revenue?
Offering WiFi can only offer positives and you can really use your WiFi offering as an instant marketing tool for your hotel as well as fast access to the internet for your residents. Having no WiFi and forcing your residents to use their own data or slow, unreliable internet access will only have a negative impact on customer reviews of their stay.
- Complaints – When customers come to review their stay at your premises, poor quality or no WiFi at all only attracts negativity
- Loss of regular customers – Regular customers who are now in the digital age and even businesses who use your hotel for meetings and business conferences will look for speedy access to connect online. If this isn’t an option for them, who’s to say they won’t stay at your competitors next time around who offer super-fast broadband with a free WiFi offering
