    Yes - it isn't particularly fast but it does. There is also free wi-fi available at numerous cafes and suchlike in the immediate vicinity.

    sorry to hear that Louise, we were with Accor for many years, but got out about 10 years ago. You do get a free night and "50%" but 50% off prices that no one ever pays, could never use at weekends, school holidays, so got sick of renewing and left
