I’ve said for years that it’s downright nickel and diming when hotels charge guests for Internet. However, there is some good news on the horizon: some hotels are offering tiered hotel Wi-Fi service. That means one level of connectivity is free, and you pay extra for faster speeds.
If you want to watch movies or stream videos, it will cost about 20 pounds a day.
Some Four Seasons properties have a free basic connection for up to two devices. But a faster speed can cost you about $25 a day.
Loews recently announced that it now has free Wi-Fi in all 18 of its hotels. But, a speedier connection for multiple devices will cost nearly $20 a day.
It’s definitely an improvement, but when you consider that it only costs hotels a few hundred dollars a month to provide wireless Internet altogether, the industry still has a long way to go.
