If you are planning your New York adventure and free WiFi is on your list of must haves for a hotel, be sure to include a stay at one of the many Hilton Hotels and Resorts properties throughout Manhattan and the other New York Boroughs.
Hilton Hotels and Resorts have recently announced that all HHonors members will receive complimentary access to premium internet access when staying at any of their New York properties. It is free to join the HHonors membership rewards program and an account can be created via their website www.hhonors.com
All HHonors members will receive complimentary access to premium internet access when staying at any of their New York properties.
Free premium internet was previously a perk which was provided to only the top tier HHonors members who had reached either Gold or Diamond status, however what seems to be a slowly moving trend, major hotel chains are now preparing to offer complimentary in-room internet for its reward program members.
There are some conditions that Australians travelling to New York should be aware of if they want to be eligible for this offer. In addition to being a member of HHonors the reservation each reservation will need to have been made directly through the hotel or via one of the chains direct booking channels including:
- The Hhonors mobile app
- Online via hilton.com, Hhonors.com or any of the brands websites
- Calling Hilton Reservations Customer Care number Australia 1300 44 58 66 or US + 1-800-445-8667
- Making a reservation directly with a hotel
- Travel professional (agents) that book via a Hilton property channel directly
Additionally if you are staying at a property that does include a resort fee (for things such as complimentary WiFi) this will still be payable to the resort. To our knowledge though, none of the New York properties charge a resort fee.
Hilton Hotels and Resorts currently have 41 properties across their brands with easy access to New York. Hilton Hotels and Resorts is one of the worlds leading hotel corporation with the following brands available in New York:
- Hilton Hotels and Resorts
- Double Tree Suites
- Embassy Suites
- Hampton Inn

What does this mean for Australians travelling to New York
Free WiFi is something that all Australians should be very interested in. As most travellers over the age of 13 will no doubt be travelling with a smart phone or tablet, the ability to enjoy free WiFi and not racking up huge roaming charges will be something that everyone can appreciate.
While most major hotels will offer complimentary WiFi in their lobby it is much more convenient to to privately peruse your social media, email your loved ones or check VisitingNewYork.com.au for what for what is happening in New York in the comfort of your own hotel room.
