Hotel Granvia sets free Wi-Fi benchmark in KyotoThe Hotel Granvia has become the first meetings and events focused hotel in Kyoto to provide a high speed wireless internet service throughout the building for free.
In 2009, the hotel introduced a Wi-Fi service in its 13 function and conference rooms, lobby and restaurant areas. But to meet the demands from visitors, the Hotel Granvia has completed a Wi-Fi upgrade and free internet access is available throughout the hotel’s facilities, including guest rooms, to satisfy the needs of smartphone and tablet computer users.
The Wi-Fi network ensures a seamless user experience with no drop in connections when moving from one area to another, and advanced security features ensure safe internet use.
James Kent, international marketing manager for the Kyoto Convention Bureau, says: “We are excited that the Hotel Granvia is providing free internet coverage throughout its facilities. It is a move which will enhance the delegate experience and sets a benchmark for other venues across Kyoto. With increasing use of mobile devices and on the move applications, access to the internet is integral to the meeting and conference environment. Complete internet access ensures that delegates needs are fully catered for and we hope more venues will follow the Hotel Granvia lead.”
Yuka Murata from the Granvia’s overseas marketing department says: “Technology is a cornerstone of our offering to the conference and meetings market. We are continually recognised as one of the most forward thinking hotels in the city and the addition of this new service is a perfect example of this commitment. What’s more, at a time when organisers and delegates need to show value for money and a clear return on investment, the provision of the service for free has been particularly welcomed by clients.”
