Amped-Up Internet Service Arrives at Hotels in Albuquerque, NM

Guests Can Surf With Speed and Confidence at the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - These days, travelers look for hotels that have fast Internet connections as much as plush bedding. And while some, if pressed, might choose connectivity over a good night's rest, guests of the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North don't have to choose. As one of the most spacious and comfortable hotels in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the hotel recently upgraded its Internet service to ensure a cyber-happy stay among all of its guests.

After investing in equipment upgrades and new programming, the hotel now offers two types of Internet service within its 252 guest rooms and 58 suites. The basic tier is ideal for individuals who just want to catch up on emails and surf the web. The enhanced tier, however, is designed for families, groups and those with multiple devices who need extensive access. It encompasses all the benefits of the basic tier but with additional bandwidth, a feature that sets the property apart from other hotels in Albuquerque, NM.

Business travelers who need to conduct video conferencing, for example, would benefit from the enhanced tier's capabilities, as would those who want to downstream video. Additionally, families staying together at this lodging in Albuquerque could put the extra bandwidth to good use as it allows for up to three devices to be connected. So while Mom and Dad check out the area's attractions, the kids can stay in touch with their friends.

"We are very excited about our upgrade and all the options that are now available for our guests," says Cynthia Stanley, General Manager. "We live in a world with so many technological advancements, not to mention a strong need for instant information, and it is great to be able to better serve our guests' needs."

No matter what a traveler's individual needs may be, looking for lodging in Albuquerque, New Mexico is no longer an either/or experience. At the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North, visitors can have it all.
