There’s now a terrific solution for overseas travellers to London unable to use their handheld devices in the UK, as the Montcalm Luxury Hotels are offering a complimentary handy smartphone service to all guests at the Montcalm London Marble Arch – so far the only hotel in the UK to do so.
Millions of people across the globe are used to being connected to the world at large 24-hours-a-day via their mobile devices, but when they travel to a foreign country there’s no guarantee their service provider will operate overseas, thus denying them online access or even the ability to make a phone call. In an era when using a smartphone for just about everything is second nature, not being able to do so can be a major inconvenience. Travellers are invariably lost without them – literally.
Now, however, for the duration of their stay in the UK capital, guests of the Montcalm will be able to use the handy devices entirely free of charge, enabling them to make local and international calls to selected countries and providing them with 3G data so they can access the internet.
In addition to ensuring guests can study and check online maps to help them navigate the city and find all its essential sights, each handy device also comes complete with preloaded tips on where to eat and drink.
The Montcalm Luxury Hotels operate five properties across the capital, from the West End to the City and beyond to Shoreditch.
To protect guests’ privacy, all personal information and browsing history will be completely cleared from the Handy smartphones when they check out of their hotels.
