Aug 28, 2015, 00:25 ET from Agoda Company Pte Ltd

SINGAPORE, Aug. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Agoda.com, one of the world's leading accommodation sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), announced today the results of its most recent Travel Smarts survey, which shows travelers prefer free in-room Wi-Fi to free breakfast.

The survey, conducted in July 2015, asked over 5,000 Agoda.com customers from around the world which amenities they want in hotel rooms.

When asked which they'd rather have for free, travelers prefer Wi-Fi over breakfast, but barely. Wi-Fi got 55% of the vote and breakfast 45%.

"We know both are important to our customers," says John Brown, Agoda.com's Chief Operating Officer. "Most hoteliers understand that, too, and the majority of the properties on Agoda.com offer room rates inclusive of Wi-Fi, breakfast or both," he said.

Travelers do have a clear preference when it comes to spacious beds, though. When asked whether they'd prefer a bigger bed or a bigger bathroom, 75% picked a bigger bed.
