There’s been quite a lot written recently about the failures of hotel wireless in London, but things seem to be going my way this evening. After a little mix-up in travel at a Radisson hotel (no fault of the hotel), I booked a last minute “top secret” hotel round the corner, which to my surprise (its a lot cheaper) was another Radisson. This hotel chain has free wireless in both hotels, it may extend to others but it certainly works in the Covent Garden area.
So, having made my online booking, I was then able to email my booking code to the front desk as the back-office systems weren’t integrated enough to deal with such immediacy. To me, that was fine – as I had free wireless, I’ll send them any email they need.
Nice when a plan comes together.
