Is Your Hotel Ripping You Off?

I’ve done more travelling in 2006 than the last 5 years combined. This article asks a persistent question of mine…

Why is it that budget hotels, like Hampton Inns, offer free high-speed Internet access to their guests while luxury hotels happily bill guests $10 or $20 a night (and up to $30 internationally) for the same service? It all comes down to what the market (and the expense account) will bear.

Nobody ever said that markets need to make sense or be fair. A good reminder.
