More Internet: American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts Adds Free Wifi to Benefits

The free wifi in 2015 keeps coming!  American Express' Fine Hotels and Resorts program, which adds benefits and special perks to upscale stays booked with your American Express Platinum card, just added free wifi as one of their benefits.

I mentioned free wifi as one my travel trends for 2015.  This comes after Starwood, hyde-park-london-hotel-dealsMarriott, and Hyatt offered some form of free wifi for its guests.  For someone that often stays at nicer properties, this is a good benefit, as wifi is often very expensive at these resorts.

This benefit adds to the formidable list already available to FHR users, like:

  • Daily breakfast for two people
  • Room upgrade upon arrival, when available
  • A unique property amenity (usually a $100 property credit)
  • Guaranteed 4PM check-out
  • Noon check-in, subject to availability

You'll also earn all your points and elite status benefits by booking through FHR.  I did this when I stayed at the US Grant Hotel in San Diego- I received all of the benefits of the above, plus bonus points as a benefit of my Starwood Gold status.

These resorts are decidedly not budget, but if you are looking to splurge on a vacation, this benefit would be amazing for anyone using their Platinum card to book a vacation.
