In Your Hotel: Wireless or Breakfast

I’m at an Econo Lodge Hotel in Pennsylvania. The fact that it had not iron, bugged my wife quite a bit but the fact that it had no data port bugged me. HOWEVER, there’s free local phone calls. I simply went to my PDA, and looked up a local Earthlink number using Earthlink’s Access number PDA tool.
In the future, we’ll pay more to get an iron in our room AND WiFi or wired broadband.
PS – free local phone calls to the ‘net wasn’t that bad, but just so slow!
USA Today reported that T-Mobile to install Wi-Fi hotspots at Red Roof Inns Accor North America has reached an agreement with T-Mobile USA to install wireless Internet access throughout all of its Red Roof Inns over the next year, officials said.
The Wi-Fi hotspots will work in guest rooms and common areas, such as lobbies and conference rooms, the companies planned to announce Tuesday.
Customers who don’t subscribe to wireless-fidelity service from T-Mobile or one of its partners will be charged $6 for the first hour or $9.99 a day. Pete Thompson, a marketing director for T-Mobile, said the company would give a free day pass to first-time users staying at a Red Roof Inn.
