Shangri-La Hong Kong's Rolls-Royce Phantom lets you surf and ride in style
Island Shangri-La in Hong Kong, where the company is based, was the first to introduce in-car connections in 2010, while the new Shangri-La Toronto is the most recent to join the club, hooking up guests in their Mercedes-Benz R and S class limos. Upcoming properties in London, Istanbul, Doha and Sanya will also offer the service.
Note that while the WiFi is free, the car ride is typically not; airport transfer prices range from approximately $90 one-way in a BMW 7 series in Bangkok to about $219 one-way in a Rolls-Royce Phantom in Hong Kong. Some properties also have billed-by-the-hour chauffeured cars on hand to take you around the city for sightseeing or shopping.
Tech-wise, this may be just the beginning for Shangri-La: In Taipei, guests are welcomed in the car via FaceTime, and in Singapore, cars are equipped with iPads loaded with city info.
