Hyatt Accelerates Wi-Fi Accessibility

CHICAGO, IL — (MARKET WIRE) — 03/24/2005 —

The Top 10 Reasons That Guests Choose to Wi-Fi at Hyatt:

10. Wires make sleeping next to your computer really uncomfortable.

9. Checking e-mail from Hyatt’s busy lobbies gives the impression of importance.

8. Staying connected to the office from a beach or poolside lounge beats the cube.

7. Hotel bars are more fun than boardrooms.

6. High-speed access gives new meaning to express delivery.

5. The only thing wired in the morning should be you…on coffee.

4. Cutting-edge technology protects the information you send and receive online.

3. Room service and wireless go hand in hand.

The only thing you should be getting tangled in is Hyatt’s 250-thread-count triple sheeting, not wires.

1. Productivity doesn’t require proximity

Hyatt Hotels & Resorts Outpaces Competition With Wireless Availability in Domestic and International Hotels

Distinguishing itself from the competition with innovative products and services, Hyatt is in the process of expanding its popular Wi-Fi service to most guestrooms and public spaces throughout its U.S. domestic and international hotels. Working with its service provider partners, Hyatt is able to cater to its guests with fast and reliable Wi-Fi access.

According to Tom O’Toole, Global Hyatt’s senior vice president of strategy and systems, deployment of wireless systems at Hyatt hotels accelerated following Hyatt’s June 2004 announcement of a strategic business partnership with T-Mobile Hotspot. T-Mobile HotSpot service is available at the majority of Hyatt properties in the U.S.

“Access to Wi-Fi in airports, airport lounges, and other places frequented by business travelers has quickly become a customer expectation,” O’Toole said. “Our objective at Hyatt has been to stay a step ahead of those expectations, and in doing so, be the first major global hotel operator to complete systemwide installation in more than 200 hotels around the world.”
