Key Bridge Marriott has joined with AT&T to offer superior Wi-Fi in all guest rooms, suites, meeting space and lobby. On Wednesday, May 16 & Thursday, May 17, the 582-room hotel, will celebrate becoming wire-free, by giving all its guests the gift of “Free Wi-Fi,” up to two megabytes (Mbps), in guest rooms. Any other day, the hotel’s Wi-Fi will be available in the lobby free of charge and the guest rooms will have two-tiered price structure; an entry level with a two Mbps capacity with an option to upgrade to four Mbps. Key Bridge Marriott also offers free Wi-Fi to Marriott Rewards® Gold and Platinum Elite members.
“We are pleased to join with AT&T to offer our guests state-of-the-art and secure Wi-Fi”, says Brian Hilger, general manager, Key Bridge Marriott. “This new wireless solution offers 12 times more bandwidth and more reliable connectivity; allowing more guests to use their iPods, iPads, tablets or laptops at the same time at faster speeds. Our guests are inherently productive, they want to relax, work and play, they have asked for more and we delivered.”
“We deployed a feature-rich Wi-Fi offering for Marriott Key Bridge to accommodate the hotel’s specific needs for flexible bandwidth options and high-quality services that best suit the needs of guests and conference attendees,” said Will Harvey, vice president of Network Integration Services at AT&T. “We understand the performance and accessibility demands of consumers and businesses, and are thrilled to provide an innovative, integrated solution that has enabled Marriott Key Bridge to offer a valuable, high-performing communications service to their customers.”
Meeting planners and conference attendees will rejoice, with the 802.11N dual radio system’s high speeds, bandwidth and flexibility. The hotel now has the ability to custom design a wireless proposal tailored to group needs. If groups desire more bandwidth, the hotel is able to increase and adjust the assigned bandwidth in a moment’s notice.
