Wi-Fi is now expected to be ubiquitous with IoT devices everywhere. Travellers expect seamless integration and connectivity for their typical tasks such as checking email, taking work-related video calls, logging onto social media and so on.
The importance of Wi-Fi for your guests
Mobile professionals are actively counting on Internet connectivity for their everyday needs. Studies by Roomzzz indicate that nearly 67% of hotel guests attempt to connect to Wi-Fi within 7 minutes of arrival. Nearly 33% of the hotel guests ask for Wi-Fi passwords during check-in, and 25% of the guests ignore the TV and focus on connecting to Wi-Fi as soon as they enter their rooms.
Wi-Fi has surpassed being an amenity and turned into a necessity and integral part of life. More than 66% of US travellers place Wi-Fi as their deciding factor when it comes to choosing accommodations.
Quality of your Wi-Fi influences guest’s choices
The iPass Mobile Professional report of 2016 indicates that 72% of people choose hotels based on their Wi-Fi experience.
Good Wi-Fi leads to better guest experiences and better reviews. And reviews impact revenue, especially since 81% of the travellers find hotel reviews important when choosing their accommodation.
Secure, stable and speedy Wi-Fi – A fundamental requisite
Wi-Fi is now emerging as the centre of a new ecosystem. It has become an indispensable component of innovative applications such as facial recognition apps for keyless entry, robotic bellhops [Yotel – New York City], and mobile mission control systems [Mood Pads] to control guest services like room service, housekeeping, room temperature [Peninsula hotel group, CitizenM] and more.
This is just the beginning of visionary applications that will make a guest’s experience exceptional.
From a management perspective, effective Wi-Fi helps develop a leaner and more efficient way to manage the hotel.
