Accor free wi-fi. Accor becomes the latest hotel chain succumbing to growing pressure for free wi fi for guests. We have campaigned for free wi fi for years, but it seems guests are now actively avoiding booking hotels who do not provide free access. This latest move comes as a result of “research” but it is quite clear the general public will not put up with this blatant money making exercise any longer.
Accor free wi-fi will now be on offer in all ibis budget, ibis, ibis Styles, Novotel, Mercure, Pullman and MGallery hotels in the UK.
Thomas Dubaere, managing director, Accor UK & Ireland explained: “Free Wi-Fi has become the norm at many coffee houses or bars but in the past with hotel groups it can vary from property to property, and differ between the public areas to bedrooms.
“We recognise that guests expect to have free wi-fi wherever they are in the hotel and for it to be a quick, high quality connection.”
The next hurdle for many hotels will be who offers fast free internet unlike the many free offers now available which are low speed connections. Perhaps it is only a matter of time before guests vote with their feet.
