The roll out of high performance WiFi utilizing the latest 802.11ac standard is in line with AccorHotel’s five year digital plan seeking to reinvent the customer experience through digital technology. Connectivity throughout the property is a fundamental requirement for both the guest experience but also empowering staff devices and corporate services whilst at the same time ensuring security.
