Courtyard By Marriott is Making Sure Their Internet Is Up to Speed, Literally

June 19, 2013 at 3:34 PM | by | ()

Courtyard by Marriott is not only working on a new look for their guestrooms but they're also getting serious about their internet speeds.

In our 2013 WiFi Report, we took a special look at what are considered good working WiFi speeds at hotels. (One to 5mbps is a fairly good speed that will allow you to get all your basic internet activities done.) We've since been keeping track of hotel WiFi speeds on this story here.

Courtyard has already recognized the important of free WiFi (which they've offered for years) but now they're implementing certain internet standards for their general managers to follow. These include implementing definitive internet strategies for each property and working with certified internet service providers. (Hopefully, that will eliminate such mishaps as this one.)

Word is compliance for these standards will begin in July so by next year, Courtyard will not only have super cool new rooms but (fingers crossed), super cool working WiFi as well.

I really like were this trend is going. Let's hope other hotels will to the same rather sooner than later.
