In Search of Wi-Fi

The more I travel, the more I have to rely on Wi-Fi.  Most of the hotels I stay at have free Wi-Fi.  Marriott is especially good about this, in all of their brands.  According to Pyramid Research,  more than 6,000 hotels worldwide are Wi-Fi enabled up from about 2,500 in 2003.  If you need to find a hotel with Wi-Fi, you can rely on travel blog, www.hotelchatter.com to find one.

Last week in New York, my hotel did not have Wi-Fi, but there was a Starbucks down the street so it really was not a problem.  And in a client meeting in Long Island, we sat a diner over breakfast, but quickly departed to a Starbucks down the street to log on.  More restaurants would be wise to install free Wi-Fi to keep their customers staying put, and spending more money.  Starbucks gets this and even makes money from it.
