Free WiFi has been extended to lobbies and other public areas in Marriott International’s Courtyard, Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn, TownePlace Suites, and SpringHill Suites hotels in the United States and Canada. The five chains combined now have more than 1,500 free WiFi hotel hotspots.
Free WiFi has been available in guest rooms for three years, but charges applied in public areas. These charges have now been eliminated in conjunction with the creation of new lobby and public spaces by most of these brands. The new interiors are designed to function as places for work and relaxation, as well as offer increased technology access.
Expansion plans for the hotels include a Fairfield Inn in Manhattan, a SpringHill Suites and Residence Inn in downtown Chicago, a TownePlace Suites in Boston and Courtyard in downtown Atlanta In addition to development and construction of new hotels, changes are underway at existing properties.
