StayWell Hospitality Group Launches Complimentary Wi-Fi Across Property Portfolio

StayWell Hospitality Group Launches Complimentary Wi-Fi Across Property Portfolio

19 November 2014

StayWell Hospitality Group has announced the introduction of free in-room Wi-Fi across Park Regis and Leisure Inn properties from January, 2015. In a recent move to heighten guests experiences across the group, the in-room Wi-Fi can be used on up to five devices and will be available in 11 properties across Australia. The initiative is a part of a $1 million technology upgrade that is being rolled out over the coming year.

StayWell Hospitality Group CEO and Managing Director, Simon Wan said the decision to roll out a free Wi-Fi service was a response to feedback from guests and the desire to offer a point of difference to competitors, with in-room Wi-Fi often an expensive exercise for hotel guests. "Our guests want free Wi-Fi that is easy to use across several devices, that is secure and comes with no fine print or hidden fees," said Mr Wan. "Guests will have the ability to download up to 250MB of data across their devices, which equates to sending and receiving approximately 25,000 emails, spending 125 hours on the internet, or streaming live music for nine hours."

"With a growing need for travellers to stay connected, we believe this free Wi-Fi service will be welcomed by both business and leisure guests across Park Regis and Leisure Inn." To further meet the needs of their guests, StayWell Hospitality Group also have paid Wi-Fi packages for those requiring a higher amount of download data during their stay. These include one day access to 250MB for $9.95 and 30 day access to 10GB of data for $39.95. The full implementation of this free service is expected by January 26, 2015 across all Australian hotels part of the StayWell Hospitality Group network.
