I have to say it is about time we see this. Most European and many international properties offer wireless. It is about time our domestic sector got with the program. You can walk in to many cafes in LA and get wireless, yet you are expected to pay for it while staying in a hotel. It should be like air conditioning. Its there if you need it, an expected "perk" while staying away.
