Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts to replace print newspapers

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts will replace approximately two million complimentary print newspapers distributed annually to guests with environmentally-friendly digital versions beginning this weekend. The Hong Kong-based luxury hotel group has partnered with PressReader, a digital newspaper and magazine service.

Guests and restaurant patrons will have unlimited, complimentary access to more than 2,000 local, regional and international publications from 100 countries in 60 languages.

To use the service, guests connect to the hotel Wi-Fi using their laptops, tablets or smartphones and go to PressReader.com or download the free PressReader app for Apple, Android, BlackBerry, or Windows. Guests can then choose the desired country, language and publication from PressReader. The service will be available in all Wi-Fi accessible areas in Shangri-La and Kerry hotels and resorts.
