HOSPA is thrilled to welcome Wifirst as a Gold sponsor.
Wifirst provides fully-managed WiFi as a Service, increasing guest satisfaction and giving clients the benefit of financial peace of mind with no capital outlay and low monthly cost.
Wifirst has clients across the UK and Europe, including Louvre Hotels Group and The Ascott Limited.
At Louvre Hotels Group, Wifirst provides Fibre Leased lines and WiFi as a Service to 17 hotels throughout the UK.
By choosing Wifirst, Louvre Hotels Group intends to raise the level of service on the connectivity aspect and in doing so, strengthen the bond with its customers through an improved digital experience.
Campanile Dartford initially put their trust in Wifirst to replace a WiFi and WAN network that had low wireless signal levels and was consequently impacting guest reviews. The combination of cost-saving increased service and support levels resulted in Wifirst being awarded the contract for all remaining properties in their UK portfolio, bringing the total under Wifirst management to 18.
Simon Rowely, Louvre Hotels Group - Group Finance Manager, said: “From the moment the solution provided by Wifirst went live in our first few properties, we knew we had made the right decision. The team were fantastic in helping us to choose the right solution at the right price, and the WiFi service we now have in our hotels is extremely reliable and very fast. It all just works, and it works very well. I would highly recommend Wifirst as a partner to anyone that is looking to update their WiFi or data line services.”
A high-speed, secure internet connection is vital today, both for business and leisure travellers. As 85% of hotel guests carry two or more devices with them when travelling, a high level of service is required to suit their needs, which generally speaking, is heavily focused on video streaming services.

The Wifirst solution is now in use across all of the group’s European properties guaranteeing free super high-speed WiFi that guests can access from everywhere in their rooms, suites, apartments and all of its communal spaces.
