    They are moreMinclined to carry a tablet than a laptop. And, when these business travellers communicate with home from their hotel room, they are most likely do so with a video chat.

    These are among the results of a hotel business and technology study commissioned by Four Points by Sheraton Hotels, a Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide brand. The survey polled a total of 6,000 business travellers globally - 1,000 each from the United Kingdom, Germany, United States, China, India and Brazil. Four Points, with the second largest brand pipeline in the Starwood portfolio, is growing rapidly across nearly 30 countries and carefully monitors the needs and habits of business travellers as part of its commitment to remain "best for business".

    As Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide reported, four Points is perfectly positioned to help keep business travellers connected, offering fast, complimentary WiFi in public spaces at all of its hotels around the world. Complimentary in-room Internet access is also provided across the entire North American division.

    Brian McGuinness, Starwood`s Senior Vice President, Specialty Select Brands, commented, "The Four Points study contains compelling results, including evidence that trends such as staying in touch with family via video chat - preferred even over email, text and phone - are accelerating."
