Sittin’ on the Ritz

When I travel to big cities and stay in big-name hotels, I expect free, wireless internet access. I don’t want to want to have to walk to a Ritz Carlton and steal their internet while sitting in their lobby pretending to wait to meet someone. That’s not to say that only high-end hotels have free internet. I walked to a Courtyard Marriott yesterday to steal their free internet access. Yet the Hyatt Regency Boston has decided that its customers who are paying upwards of $175 a night, should pay $10 to T-Mobile for a day’s worth of internet. Do you think this is Starbucks? I am no business traveler but I find open internet to be essential to picking a hotel. Take out the mini-bars, the bathrobes, and the ambient light alarm clocks. Give me internet!
