Most travelers treasure the limited Wi-fi connection at the hotels they are staying in. For them, having access to their e-mail and social media accounts is their only way to contact the people they left back home. It could also be a way for them to update others about their staycation.
Unfortunately, most guests don’t know how to maximize the free Internet access their hotel provides. By knowing where to hang out and when’s the right time to go online, guests can get faster speeds inside the hotel.

The best connection isn’t inside the room. This is what guests should know. However, this is the only connection that they have access to. Instead of paying more money for faster speeds, guests can choose to leave their rooms and choose another place in the hotel where there’s better signal. Places such as the lobby, café, bar, library, business center, or even poolside have different networks. If a customer is checked in, he or she may ask hotel staff for access details. Most likely, there are different usernames and passwords for each location.
Make full use of free Internet access during the wee hours. When it’s past most guests’ bedtime and there are no more people in the lobby or the café, that’s the best time to go online. This is also the best time to enjoy the comfy couches and the relaxing ambiance of the hotel. For those who can’t seem to work well with a bed and a television in sight, going online at the lobby might be conducive to getting work done.
