Business travelers to Hong Kong need not be concerned about staying connected or coming home to an obscene mobile phone international roaming charge when they stay here.
The novelty of this property is that all rooms are equipped with a complimentary smartphone as an in-room amenity.
The service provides unlimited international and local calls, unlimited 3G data and Wi-Fi tethering capabilities, an informative city guide, promotions and other features. Guests can take the phone out of the hotel to stay connected during the day, and dial directly to in-room dining, concierge or to the spa.
The phone is pre-loaded with travel apps including news services, a currency converter, map, as well as a location-based city guide.
It's a huge win for anyone needing to organise meetings or even leisure travelers who are keen to check out the city without being stuck in your hotel room doing your research on the best things to see and do because that's where the free WiFi is.
Guests get instant access to free high-speed data connectivity, unlimited local and international phone calls, currently to 25 countries.
The unlimited 3G Internet connectivity also allows for easy Wi-Fi tethering to other mobile devices such as laptops and tablets. Upon check-out, all browsing history, personal information and any additional applications are completely wiped from the device, and the handset is reset back to the original factory settings, ensuring peace of mind for the user, while upholding Hotel ICON's dedication to safeguarding guest privacy.
