CNN: Why are we still paying for hotel Wi-Fi?

We think it’s a great question, too.

Many hotels only offer complimentary wi-fi in the lobby, and immediately cut off the signal when guests enter a meeting room or a sleeping room. With charges ranging from $10-$40 per night (and even hourly charges!), hotel guests are rightfully becoming upset. Meeting planners share the frustration as well, as meeting room wi-fi costs can be astronomically high.

Wi-fi has become an integral part of both business and pleasure travel; guests expect it in both their meeting rooms and their sleeping rooms.

How do you feel about wi-fi charges? Have you ever avoided a hotel because of them?
