I almost live in Marriott hotels, and so this is the announcement I have been waiting for. Marriott has offered WiFi at select locations for a while, but now (see http://www.tmcnet.com/usubmit/2004/Apr/1028108.htm) WiFi is being rolled out to 1200 hotels worldwide. The only problem I have is thus far Marriott has billed wired access and WiFi access separately (each has a daily charge billed to your room), they need to combine that and have a daily rate regardless of connection type. But, aside from that, this is good news indeed.

  1. Charge for WiFi? I recently stayed in several hotels that offer WiFi as a complementary service :). (I understand that pulling cable for wired access is costly, but I am hoping that complementary WiFi is will be the wave of the future.)
