As reliable high-speed Internet access has become one of the most important amenities for today’s business traveler, The Chicago Mart Plaza keeps guests connected with newly updated Wi-Fi speeds that surpass industry standards.  The Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza’s newly updated Wi-Fi capabilities include raising the bandwidth from 4.5 to 100 megabytes per second, and replacing the standard T1 wireless connection with more efficient and environmentally friendly Fiber Optic lines.  As the first hotel in Chicago to receive its LEED® Gold Certification (Existing Buildings, Operations & Maintenance) by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED-EBOM), Chicago Mart Plaza stands by its commitment to supporting green initiatives by giving preference to LEED-qualified green products, operations and practices.

According to a recent iPass Hospitality Survey:

·      95 % of business travelers care if there is Wi-Fi or a wired connection in a hotel
·      63% of business travelers confirm, prior to booking, whether a hotel has Internet
·      Poor Wi-Fi service influences whether they book that specific hotel in the future
“The Mart Plaza is always looking for ways to keep up with the needs of customers”-France Langan, Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza, Director of Sales & Marketing.  “We really stand by a commitment to offering cutting edge amenities and anticipating the needs of our guests and we see this as an important initiative.”
