Internet at hotels

Does anyone know if internet access is included with the convention rate? I stayed at Hyatt Olive 8 this year for the con and booked it through the passkey. I read on their site the internet access for a day was $10 and I allowed it for 3 days. When I got my bill they didn't add on that extra $30. I'm staying there again for next year. Maybe they didn't charge it because it was my first time there and just being nice? I'm staying there longer this time and I need that internet to find places to eat. Or I can just assume they will and throw in a 50 towards my hotel money.

Just to be safe I'd assume that they will charge the internet fee, since I haven't read anything about booking through the con site waiving fees like that.

Depends on the hotel. You would have to call and ask. Some do, some don't.

Stayed at the Hilton this year and there was a massive charge for internet in the rooms. Internet in the lobby is free most of the time though. c:

If it's going to be free in the lobby I'll just do that. No need to go up a bunch of floors to my room to look up [what I'm hungry for] restaurants and on top of that having to pay for that service.

Yea the BEST part, is you don't even have to do THAT..lol Ask the concierge where to get X food at..I know a few good close to con places. Like Pizza and fast food..Then you got the freaking cheesecake factory right there (if you don't mind waiting).

So much stuff I didn't even know. I saw the little Concierge title for the guy at the counter but I thought that was a baggage guy. Before I left for Seattle I made a list of places I wanted to eat at but I forgot to e-mail that list to myself and I had to rebuild it or forget about places I wanted to try. I still like being able to look at directions on my ipod.

Yea that's what those guys are for haha They are required to know (before getting a job) what the local area is like and what all the food and hang out places and whatnot are and how to get there. The baggage guys you are thinking of, that person is called a bellhop (pronounced bell-hop). Anyway, even with them telling you the places you could go, you can still gps them on your ipod by typing the place name, and then "my location" which I'm sure you are used to. The guy can really only tell you HOW to get there, not draw out a map so it's a good idea to use the ipod gps anyway regardless. But you can go, "so I'm craving [x food]..What places around here can I get that?" and they will name off places, then you can pick one and gps tha if you like.
