At Last! Mandarin Oriental Offers Free WiFi (So Long As You Book Directly With Them)

While Mandarin Oriental Hotels have an impressive collection of hotels that never fail to dazzle, we've always been a bit annoyed by their WiFi charges, especially since their rooms don't come cheap. For example, at the Mandarin Oriental Paris, rooms cost over $1,000 USD but the hotel also charges another $20 for WiFi. Mon dieu! However, that will now change.

Mandarin Oriental has announced that they will give its guests complimentary internet access to those guests who create an online profile and book published rates through the hotel's own website. A-ha, we see what you've done here.

You can create your Mandarin Oriental online profile here. It's free to do but it does require you filling out some personal information like your name, address and gender. This will no doubt means you will be receiving some marketing mail, both paper and electronic, from Mandarin Oriental.

However, Mandarin Oriental does stress that they will offer you the best rate on their site. And if you find a better rate, Mandarin Oriental will not only match the rate, but they will offer you a further 10 percent reduction. And once you make your reservation through Mandarin Oriental, you'll get free internet access for up to six personal devices.

That's pretty rad. We hate having to jump through this online profile hoop but it does seem like it will pay off during our next stay. Now, if only we can scrounge up a $1,000 for the Mandarin Oriental Paris.

The Best Hotel

The Mandarin Oriental looks like the place to stay. When traveling I do a simple online search to find super discount hotel rates. I get a listing of all of the hotels in my destination city. Simply go to <a href="http://reservationshopper.com">http://reservationshopper.com</a> then pick out the lowest priced hotel in the surrounding area.  It is a price comparison service for hotels that lets you find the lowest rates and displays all hotel information on single page.
