CARLSON REZIDOR CELEBRATES 200 MILLION HOURS OF FREE INTERNET FOR GUESTS
Complimentary Internet for all guests since 2010
Singapore (20 August 2013) – Game-changers at heart, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s hotels in Asia Pacific – Radisson Blu, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM– are celebrating 200 million hours of free Internet access given to their guests in the past three years. Since 2010, the group has provided all guests with complimentary unlimited access to Internet in all its hotels as part of its service promise and guest experience.
“We are proud to be one of the trailblazers from 2010 providing free Internet to all guests while many hotels continue to charge for Internet usage. Back then, we knew that Internet connectivity was one of the top things that was important to a business or leisure traveler and that still remains true today. With our 100% guest satisfaction policy, we went one step further, ahead of many of our peers to set a new benchmark of providing free Internet access to all guests, not just our loyal guests. Our guests love it as the Internet and connectivity are critical to how we live our lives today,” commented Lucinda Semark, Executive Vice President, Revenue Generation, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
Whether you are a Club CarlsonSM member, a new or returning guest staying at Carlson Rezidor’s hotels in Asia Pacific, you will get to enjoy free Internet access and connectivity throughout the hotels, and not just limited to the lobby and common areas, making this one of its most celebrated brand hallmarks. Be it for business or leisure, you will be able to stay connected throughout your stay.
Enhancing the guest experience remains a top priority and Carlson Rezidor’s hotels are on a quest to be innovative – Radisson Blu Plaza Hyderabad Banjara Hills is the first hotel in the group to introduce free Internet in their hotel cars, providing access for travelers in transit. This will be extended to more hotels in Asia Pacific.
