The internet has become a ubiquitous, with hotels, airports, cafes and even fast food restaurants offering their guests free Wi-Fi. This week marks the announcement of Hyatt hotels and resorts’ roll-out of global free Wi-Fi to all of their guests. That’s right, Hyatt will be offering free internet connectivity to all of their guests, regardless of their booking method or loyalty program participation. Guests can connect an unlimited number of mobile devices or laptops in private rooms or public spaces throughout the hotel.
“We continue to evolve our offerings by listening to our guests, and for Hyatt, it didn’t feel natural to put barriers around something travelers view as an essential part of their hotel stay,” said Kristine Rose, vice president of brands, Hyatt. “More than 500 Hyatt-branded hotels and resorts worldwide are excited to now provide Wi-Fi free of charge in guest rooms and social spaces, no strings attached.”
“With free Wi-Fi for all guests at all Hyatt hotels and resorts, guests can worry less about their Internet connections and focus on the things that matter most.”
Platinum and Diamond Hyatt Gold Passport members will receive a free upgrade to premium Wi-Fi service in those spaces wherever available. The premium service will likely offer fast speeds for streaming content and teleconferencing. The basic service does not extend to conference rooms or business meetings.
