As I’ve mentioned before when reviewing the American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts (FHR) program, a portal that allows Amex Platinum cardholders to take advantage of perks and benefits at select hotels and resorts—not unlike having elite status or booking through a well-connected travel agent. And just as Amex keeps adding properties to the FHR roster, they keep extending their line-up of benefits, as well—such as the latest perk of free in-room WiFi.

One of the greatest values of Amex FHR
One of the greatest values of Amex FHR’s new perk of free in-room WiFi can be found at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara.

The true value of this new benefit depends on the FHR property where you choose to stay. At some FHR properties, in-room WiFi is already included as part of a daily resort fee or isn’t available at all, in which case you’ll have access to complimentary WiFi in a common area of the property.

For example, the Eden Roc Cap Cana already offers free WiFi in their Junior Suites and Villas, as does the Capella in Washington, D.C. and the St. Regis Bali Resort (where I recently stayed—review to come). The Four Seasons Santa Barbara offers free WiFi for the first two devices and a $20 per-day fee for up to five additional devices, so complimentary WiFi there is more of a value.

Amex seems to be focusing on WiFi access lately, as this new FHR benefit follows their recent partnership with Boingo, which allows US and UK Platinum cardholders free Boingo access worldwide. I’m definitely a fan of the FHR portal and free WiFi, so am happy to see this trend continuing.
