Best Hotel WiFi Improvement: W Hotels
When we launched our Annual WiFi Report in March 2006, W Hotels was on our Worst Hotel WiFi List because while they appear to set the standards for boutique hotels, we found they were often charging $10 or more for internet access and in some places, they didn't even have wireless.
Yet as 2006 draws to a close, we have to give some improvement props to W for offering WiFi for free in most of their hotel lobbies, or living rooms as they prefer to be called. This is great news since we like W Hotels and we like being able to have wireless internet when we travel. And in 2007, W Hotels just might be taken off the Worst Hotel WiFi List.
