Movenpick offers limousines with wifi
Dubai, March 3, 2014
Movenpick Hotels & Resorts across the Middle East has fitted its limousines with a 4G Lite wifi car mobile device.
The device will enable guests who use the airport transfer service to connect to the internet through their personal devices or alternatively through the in-car iPad provided by most of the hotels, said a statement.
The initiative is part of the upscale hospitality company’s aim to add value through the use of progressive technology, it said.
Roger Macfarlaine, vice president – technology for MEA, said: "Initial feedback from our guests is extremely positive and many are very impressed by the connectivity they can experience in this way from the airport to their room."
The use of the in-car iPad gives them access to music and hotel information like restaurant menus and reservations, spa services, upcoming events at the hotel and around the city, he said.
The complimentary service has already been implemented at 21 properties including Dubai, Doha, Kuwait, Sana’a, Al Khobar, Jeddah, Makkah, Madinah, Tala Bay, Aqaba, Phuket, Cebu, Hanoi and Singapore. - TradeArabia News Service
