Infographics top 5 Hotel room facilities.
The power and rapidity with which our web oriented world is changing is impacting many of the choices and habits of our lifestyle. This is turn is impacting many industries including travel to make the changes required to meet clients expectations.
With the development of Web 2.0 and all its applications now we can find and share information in a quick and easy way. All that has completely changed the way we get information about the destinations that we would like to visit, how we book our trips, and also has changed the way we communicate and stay connected with “our world” during the course of the trip.
Road to Travel posed this question on a survey. What are the top 5 hotel room facilities that you look for in a hotel room? Not surprising giving the considerations we have just pointed out that a WIFI connection won hands down. Access to the internet has become fundamental to our way of life.
Today thanks to an internet connection, even during a nice tour of Rome or a romantic vacation in Venice , we can stay in touch with family , we can have a video call with relatives and friends , we can send birthday wishes to your best friends, indeed it seems that the wishes we make while we travel are even more appreciated.
The new trend is that our our travel experiences go online immediately. Thanks to the support of the main social networks connected to our devices, we can tell the world in real time about our tours, hotels, guided visits and much more. There is no need to return home to share this information We can post more and more often pictures and videos of a scenic view Venice canals from the hotel room, a group of friends at the airport waiting to board a flight to Italy, the tips of the feet of a friend while he is relaxing on some Sicilian beach, a plate of local specialties in a typical Tuscan restaurant or enjoying a fancy drink in a bar in Milan.
And of course after the we post something we want to continue to be connected because we can not wait to see how many “likes” and comments we get. It seems we spend just as much time posting and replying to posts than we do sightseeing! At the end of the day we must ask , if everything has already been shared and commented on what ever will be talk about with friends and family when we return home?
