While platinum level members of the Starwood Preferred Guest program are able to get free WiFi during their stay, The Points Guy points out that you can actually get it if you're a gold member too. Internet is one of three choices now offered at the gold level, the others being bonus starpoints or a free drink in the bar. Gold level also only takes 10 nights a year to achieve.
Yet just because it's free doesn't mean it's working as The Points Guy mentioned he had "glacial speed" at the W South Beach which charges $14.95 a day for internet. Looks like someone needs to upgrade their network.
We're already making notes for the 2013 Hotel WiFi Report (we can tell you speed and signal quality will be a huge focus) but for now, feel free to share your Best and Worst Hotel WiFi experiences with us HERE.
