In the hectic world of business, myhotels have become synonymous with style,
luxury and relaxed elegance - an oasis of calm in the heart of London. Operations Director Chris Oakes comments: “We are constantly listening to our guests’ requirements and preferences, and by updating the technology available at myhotels, we aim to continue to bring our guests the freedom and comfort they require to ensure we remain the only choice for business travellers.”
With the addition of the very latest in technological innovation, Wi-fi*, myhotels are among the first to step into the 21st century. Wi-fi is a new internet access solution which will allow guests the freedom to have instant wireless access to the Internet, email and even their corporate network, using their own laptops, the minute they step into the hotel. This revolutionary technology has created a unique environment in which to do business.
Liberty-i, an innovation by Strategic Networks Ltd, allows guests access to a host of online services from laptop PC, MAC notebook or handheld PCs, wherever they are in the hotel - mybar, the library, the private rooms or the bedrooms. By cutting out the hassle of connecting by wire to the Internet, Liberty-i gives a completely new freedom when arranging conferences and impromptu business meetings.
If they do not already have one, guests on arrival can rent a wireless LAN (WLAN) card from reception, together with their secure Liberty-i passkey cards - which can be pre-paid or added to the room bill. A myhotels welcome message will notify the user that they are free to use Wi-fi whenever and however they wish. Furthermore, Liberty-i fully supports virtual private network (VPN) client connection for highly secure access to corporate networks across the Internet.
Time is always at a premium when travelling on business and myhotels seek to offer guests value for time as well as value for money. Combined with the unique guest services and ‘‘mypreferences’’ forms, filled in by guests prior to arrival, myhotels aim to facilitate a speedy check-in and to ensure their stay will be as smooth as possible by anticipating every guest’s needs.
To take even more pressure off during any business trip, myhotels feature relaxing spaces, such as the library, with complimentary teas, coffees and snacks which offer a perfect place to work in comfortable, chic and soothing surroundings; beautiful, fully equipped private rooms, available for conferences and events; and a daily help yourself lunch perfect for a speedy, delicious business meeting. The jinja spa offers indulgent treatments perfect for winding down after a hectic day, and myhotels fully qualified personal trainers to help kick start the morning.
