Reality and society have changed considerably in recent times and travel is no longer conducted in the same way as before. Today, any time is good to reserve flights and start to dream about a destination thousands of miles away. Internet has erased the remaining boundaries and has converted travellers’ experiences to global, from the moment when planning a journey up to the return home, sharing the details with friends and family.
Look for destinations, compare prices, check distances and connections, read the opinions of hotels to find good accommodation, book a room, car hire and even the entrance tickets for museums. All this can be done with just a few clicks.
This is the age of the traveller 2.0. We feel more comfortable organizing our own trips, deciding and managing all the details from the beginning to the end. As connections improve and the price becomes more affordable, the number of operations via internet that we are prepared to undertake increases. Not only before departure but also during the trip, we can find out about cultural plans for the same day in our chosen destination, check out a route or find a recommended restaurant.
Since internet is gaining territory as the great universal tourist guides, many hotel groups are offering internet access in all their hotels in order to improve the users experience and capture new clients who search directly for hotels with free wifi in Valencia or hotels with internet in Madrid.
In fact, some of these chains have gone a step further and offer the latest services such as portable computers in the room, the possibility of DSL connection or wi-fi throughout the hotel. This is case of the Basque chain, High Tech Hotels, for whom new technology is a priority and who have an outstanding portfolio of boutique hotels in Spain.
The Hotel Petit Palace Italia Madrid – perfect for families, the Hotel Petit Palace Mayor Plaza Madrid – built on the land of the house where Lope de Vege was born, the Hotel Petit Palace Londres Madrid – a few steps from Puerta del Sol, or the Hotel Petit Palace Santa Barbara Madrid – the former Palace of the Marqueses de Quintanar – are some examples of hotels with the latest technology that High Tech have in Madrid.
