|ATLANTA, GA -June 23, 1999 - The road warriors have spoken.
As they become more reliant upon the Internet to stay connected on the
road, business travelers are looking for hotels committed to keeping pace
with their technology needs, according to a study released today at the
Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC), the
country’s largest hospitality technology trade
The national survey of business travelers shows that people are looking for more and better technology options in hotels, and are inclined to select properties that offer superior Internet resources in guestrooms. In terms of how they prefer to spend their hotel-room time, surfing the Web appears to have caught up with surfing the TV channels - and it’s significantly more appealing to today’s business travelers than traditional amenities like pay-per-view movies.
The survey was commissioned by Cyberoom™, a leading provider of solutions for hotels and resorts looking to evolve their technology services to meet the demands of their guests. Launched this week at HITEC in Atlanta, Ga., Cyberoom’s in-room technology solutions include high-speed Internet access connection ports for laptop PCs, in-room computer systems and a user-friendly home page that showcases hotel services and connects guests to a variety of useful and interesting Web sites.
“This survey confirms what hotel operators around the world are hearing increasingly from their guests,” said Mark Moltzan, president of Cyberoom. “Travelers need fast, reliable Internet services to keep in touch with their priorities while away from home.”
Key findings of the survey include:
