I just got back from staying three nights in a fairly upscale hotel owned by one of the world's largest and oldest hotel companies. I was dismayed to discover that this hardly inexpensive hotel had no complementary WiFi anywhere in the building. They charge $9.95 a day for access. I even called the desk to verify that this was the case. I may not travel as often as many people, but this is the first time in several years I've encountered a hotel with this policy. I've been provided with free WiFi access at even relatively inexpensive hotels and motels, if not always in the room, then somewhere on the premises. I've come to expect it. Is this wrong or unrealistic? For regular travelers: Do many hotels still insist on charging for access?
