In-building Wireless (DAS) Protects Hospitality Occupancy Rates

Hotels, resorts and conference centers are constantly looking for ways to attract guests and groups, and to build loyalty and repeat business for their properties and brands.

60 percent of voice calls and 70 percent of smartphone activity originate inside of buildings. Smartphones and wireless AirCards are becoming de facto standards for today's business traveler.

Road warriors are able to roam freely from their offices to hotels without missing an email. Take away the signal feeding these devices and you're likely to lose room-nights over it. In today's economy, you can't afford to watch occupancy drop due to poor technology decisions.

Every guest that walks through the door has a cellphone or PDA, and making sure that phone works is the best amenity we can deliver to keep that guest happy. In-building wireless technology was a top priority for us in meeting guest satisfaction goals to ensure loyalty and repeat visits. That’s why we planned for it as we built the property.
