Cox Business/Hospitality Network has been designated as a Choice Hotels-approved qualified vendor to service Choice Hotels International franchised hotels. As a provider of telecommunications services to the hospitality and gaming-resort industry, CB/HN is qualified to evaluate the current internet bandwidth status of Choice Hotels properties and make improvements where needed.
 
To ensure guests have fast, safe and hassle-free online experiences, the hotel company, with more than 6,500 franchised locations worldwide across 11 brands, mandated new connectivity, speed and Wi-Fi network support standards for many of its franchises to meet by the end of 2018.
 
“People today are traveling with more devices than ever. At all Choice Hotels properties, it is a top priority to provide guests with secure, high-quality Wi-Fi connectivity and bandwidth,” said Jay Sigona, senior director of enterprise program development and implementation, in a statement. “Choice’s Qualified Vendor program identifies best-in-class hospitality offerings, taking out the guess work for our hotel franchisees and enabling them to focus on what they do best – delivering exceptional guest experiences.”
