Metro Apartments on Bank Place has removed all charges for internet usage to make it easier for their guests to stay connected.
Guests will now be able to access free wireless internet in their room or free broadband at the lobby computer kiosks during their stay.
Previously, internet access was available for a fee and could cost guests staying for an average of three to four nights as much as $100 during their stay.
According to Mr George Bedwani, Chief Operating Officer of Metro Hospitality Group, the internet has become an important part of our daily lives regardless of whether we are travelling for business or pleasure.
“You can’t put a price on staying connected, so we haven’t,” said Mr Bedwani.
“A high proportion of our guests are business travellers. Their feedback has clearly indicated free high-speed internet as a key criterion when choosing which hotel to stay at.
“Free wireless or high-speed internet in rooms is becoming a service guests expect, like shampoo, telephones and cable TV. Metro Apartments on Bank Place is ensuring it meets guests’ expectations with no hidden charges, mark ups or variations regardless of how they book.”
