Best Hotel WiFi Spot: The Raleigh Miami
These days everyone is looking for four bar, non-complicated, hotel WiFi when they check in. Sure there are a bunch of hotel WiFi lists out there, but they are quickly out of date and unreliable. This week, as a lead up to our popular annual hotel WiFi report, we will let you know our favorite WiFi hotels in five hot travel destinations. The rules are simple. The signal has to fast, and reliable, the cost should be free (at the very least free for guests) and the WiFi experience at these hotels offer a comfortable surfing environment. Have a city or destination you want us to investigate? Let us know. And if you have a favorite WiFi hotel you are willing to share, no matter where it is send it our way.
Miami is pretty much all about partying with as little clothes on as possible so it's not really the place to go do work. Thus internet access is not a top priority when you've got more important things to do like tanning, drinking, reapplying tanning oil and clubbing.
But when we hit up the The Raleigh Hotel we discovered that this Andre Balazs Hotel has property-wide free WiFi, meaning that we could still be by the pool tanning and drinking while cruising the internet. Yes, you have to be a guest, or at least know the free access code to access the network, but that makes sense at a scene hotel like the Raleigh.
The signal worked everywhere. up in our room, down in the lobby, outside by the pool--it even stretched out onto the beach--not like you can actually see your screen through the suns glare on the beach, but it is still cool.
