Guests at a new Portsmouth hotel will be one of the first in the country to benefit from new technology and room designs.
The new Holiday Inn Express, which is due to open in Farlington, is one of only four in the country to roll out the new ‘next generation’ experience.
Special features in some of the new guest rooms include:
n Smart TVs enabling guests to stream their own media from a personal device or log in to apps such as Netflix using the hotel’s free Wi-Fi.
n A larger, cosier, bed with a padded, noise-reducing headboard and back support.
n A flexible work/rest corner where traditional desks have been replaced with a multi-use chair and table that can be moved around the room.
n Stored in a full-length mirror, guests can access an iron, ironing board and a hairdryer.
There are also changes to the food and drinks menu and dining areas of the hotel.
