With more than half of business travelers in the survey carrying three to four mobile devices, hotels need to focus on delivering in-room Wi-Fi as their business centers are becoming less relevant.
When today’s road warriors hit the trail, they are armed with three or four mobile devices to help them stay connected to office and home. They are more inclined to carry a tablet than a laptop. And, when these business travellers communicate with home from their hotel room, they are most likely do so with a video chat.
These are among the results of a hotel business and technology study commissioned by Four Points by Sheraton Hotels, a Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (HOT) brand. The survey polled a total of 6,000 business travellers globally – 1,000 each from the United Kingdom, Germany, United States, China, India and Brazil. Four Points, with the second largest brand pipeline in the Starwood portfolio, is growing rapidly across nearly 30 countries and carefully monitors the needs and habits of business travellers as part of its commitment to remain “best for business”.
