The hotel now offers a choice of wireless or hardwire internet to meet the varied needs of today’s business and leisure travellers. “We have installed a range of services as a result of customer demand, “It’s what our guests have been asking for and now we can provide it for them,” says Dean Overend, Duxton Hotel Wellington, Rooms Division Manager.
