In a world where accessibility is king, hotel guests are seeking convenient, innovative ways to stay connected while traveling. With its signature B In Touchâ„˘ program, B Hotels & ResortsÂ® has introduced FreeBâ„˘ Wi-Fi providing complimentary, high-speed, wireless Internet access throughout its hotels including guestrooms, lobby, pool patio, and meeting and function spaces. The lifestyle brand, which recently celebrated its successful first year in business with the opening of B Ocean Fort Lauderdale, is one of the first full-service hotel brands to offer complimentary Wi-Fi as a standard at each of their hotels.
â€śMost full-service hotels offer internet connectivity at a cost of $10 or more per day, and quite often only with limited bandwidth. At B Ocean Fort Lauderdale, we provide our guests access to 100MB high-speed Internet at no additional charge,â€ť said Eduardo Fernandez, General Manager of B Ocean Fort Lauderdale. â€śItâ€™s a terrific offering for our guests and one of the many reasons to stay at our beautiful oceanfront hotel.â€ť
In addition to FreeBâ„˘ Wi-Fi, B Hotels & ResortsÂ® offers courtesy iPads to hotel guests. They may be reserved at the front desk and enjoyed throughout the property.
â€śAs a brand focused on culture and social interaction, B Hotels & ResortsÂ® is passionate about offering technologies that enhance the guest experience,â€ť said Chris Tompkins, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand Programs. â€śFreeBâ„˘ Wi-Fi is one example of how we are satisfying guestsâ€™ needs and desires at no additional cost. At B Ocean Fort Lauderdale, the courtesy iPads and FreeBâ„˘ Wi-Fi are hugely successful, allowing travelers the benefit of staying connected throughout the hotel and even while sunbathing on the white sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach. Guests at B South Beach will also benefit from complimentary FreeBâ„˘ technology when the hotel opens its doors in 2013.â€ť
B Hotels & ResortsÂ® properties also feature the MonsciergeÂ®, a virtual concierge, in its public areas and function space. The interactive, touch-screen destination guide offers suggestions for nearby dining, nightlife, family activities, cultural attractions and more options to discover the city. Guests are able to send the directions to their mobile phones from the MonsciergeÂ®. At B Ocean Fort Lauderdale â€“ which was one of the first hotels in the United States to provide access to the MonsciergeÂ® â€“ guests are able to check flight status, check-in for a departing flight and print boarding passes at the front desk.
â€śWith FreeBâ„˘ Wi-Fi and additional elements of our B In Touchâ„˘ initiative, B Ocean Fort Lauderdale allows guests to travel with ease and convenience, enjoying modern innovations without any additional costs to services that are expected to be standard amenities included in the overall guest experience,â€ť added Fernandez.
