Hotels.com will crowd source best breakfast options in upcoming Twitter chat
DALLAS –April 8, 2014 – While free Wi-Fi remains the most desirable in-room amenity, more travelers are looking for complimentary breakfasts according to the latest Hotels.com® Amenities Survey.
Not surprisingly, hotel guests preferred Wi-Fi over any other in-room feature as the need for constant connectivity remains at an all-time high. Travelers also identified the bathroom shower and room size among the most important in-room features.
However, the survey found that food is becoming more of a factor when it comes to hotel property amenities. When asked which hotel amenities are most important outside of the room, complimentary breakfast topped the list, followed by presence of a restaurant. Wi-Fi availability in shared spaces of the hotel was also one of the top amenities.
“Popular hotel amenities like parking, non-smoking rooms and pools have become more standardized, and we’re seeing that travelers are placing more value on quality food options than ever before which is good news for foodies!” said Taylor L. Cole, APR travel expert for Hotels.com.
